The Pow Wow Pond Ledges RollVic fundraiser was held down at Princes Park yesterday (another in Owen Parry’s line of World Mocking Series event names) and despite a gloomy looking Sunday (damn Melbourne) there was a great turnout. We also  learned about Danny’s frisbee skills, which happened to be aimed at Frenchman Zack DeBlaize for most of the day…

Finally got a chance to take some photos. Was good to get back into it and was the first outing since I got my camera back from repair. Owen should be doing a little writeup about the event shortly.

Thanks to Owen and RollVic for organising another chilled out event!

Update: The article’s been posted on emesce here.

Southbank, Melbourne – Feb 2010

For the past 3 weeks, Tuesday nights in Melbourne have seen a decent gathering of rollers the Riverslide skatepark. If you’re up for some chill sessions you should come down and check it out.

During this time we’ve also made some new international friends by the name of Dave (USA) and Zack (Europe) – So shout outs to those guys.

Last night a few of us went for a look down Southbank by the Yarra river, Unfortunately I didn’t have my sync cables fso was relying on the SB-26’s optical slave function..

Here’s a few simple snaps I ran off while we were there.

Melton Skatemeet, January 2010

Robbie Pitts is back to organising regular skatemeets in Melbourne again. The first stop for January is Melton Skatepark. We had about 5-6 cars come out and was great to see everyone tearing the park up – Especially in the 30-something degree heat. We also headed down to Melton Reservoir. Epic views. Lots of concrete. One bad crash.
