After arriving on the east coast an nearly dying cos of 4 wheel studs shearing off an nearly losing a rear wheel which left my van fucked & imobilized ( big ups ta H for helpin on that drama), an luckly i was going slow when it happened & we escaped death ha ha ( the dirt god was with us!!) a whole lot of diggin got done !!
The coast was in pridictable form with constant drizzly weather the whole time down there ,the edge of a bloody cyclone that slammed the north Island hard!! So no riding trails just diggin , coffee, food & verbal dribble ( mostly from me ha ha ) which is always a good thing ta get ya charging behind a wheelbarrow & shovel !!! Investing in summer trail filled days is what it's all about , diggin at ya mates trails with ya mates over winter , that's what trails is all about & keeping ya hard work secret is another hard thing unless ya got a good crew that understands what trails are all about !!! Come summer an S.H. is gona be a fun , fast , tech , good time on ya bike no matter how ya roll !!!
Only 3 locals showed up ( 1 the owner of the trails) ta help with the diggin & that waz a real let down as all the uther boys (5 of us) that dug over the past 4 day's were from Timaru , Geraldine , Wanaka & Queenstown , jus a few 100 km's away aye !!! there are alot of boy's that roll 20'' 24'' 26'' at S.H. an they all live 20 mins by car from d trails where were they, it wasn't to wet ta not dig fellaz !! Dig trails & make ya scene grow !!! SO BIG UP'S TO ALL THE DIGGERS WHO SHOWED UP !! RESPECT !! alot got done , playin with clay is a fun sticky boggy time !!! Go slap a lip HARD. Oh yeah an thanks to H.D , N.G. & Elvis for the treats & a roof !!Check out http://www.phatlines.com/ the bizniz side of thangs !!! theres a few nice photo's ta check out ( i like the top main shot ,epic backdrop)!!! have fun how ever ya roll !!! but remember ta just keep it all PHAT & PHILPHY EH !!

TOOO ha ha , this i also found at youtube , there's some naughty boy's out there ha ha ha what eva !! just watch it !! an all the rest when this vids over, be sure ta check out ( scroll right ) Aitken's 50/50 part as well , the net is good & bad , go out an buy Electronical , it's worth it ( if ya got the spare $$) as ya realy geting 3 dvd's , i'm in no way say'in it's cool ta load shit on the net , but hey ya could call it Marketing if ya want !!! you be the judge !!! if it's on the web it'll get watched.
mmm trails oh yeah Bruce rocks ha ha !! There's always loads of fun in the woods on july 4th , i'm sure there's a reason ??? Do ya realy need an excuse ta ride fun trails ?? ahhh NO !!! Enjoy the vid !!! Start diggin ya own trails , Where eva ya be get on it !!! An it's good ta know that the trail scene in the south Island (NZ) is still slowy growin secretly , Scott ( north otago, i kno where ) has some trails in his yard , good shit digger i look forward ta helpin ya dig & ride a little aye !!! keep up the good work !!!! I here there's gona be a jam soon !!! there's a big new hip also , i'll see if Scott has some photo's of his trails ??................................................................. i'm not sure what the deal is with the jam but i'd guess invite only as trail heads like keeping trails on d down low , savy ????? Trails 4 Life , screw NIKE , just dig it !!!!
There's been alot of weather like d greyness uptop & it's all good fa diggin d earth , an diggin in the rain is even better so with a well good sesh behind d shovel's & wheelbarrow's over the past few weeks the trails are takin shape nicely , so with in a week or so hopeful we'll start rollin the line , an yer fellaz if you are keen to help dig abit Saturdays ( you've got me digits , so hola at me ) are best for everyone. Night diggin is about ta kick off during the week ,light's shovels & action !!!
It's always sweet when the sun comes out an dry's up d concrete , well it don't melt the permafrost in d bowls at all , but it makes the 1/4's & mini all sweet ta roll & do skids & tricks on ha ha ha !!! A big welcome to wanaka !! all you outa town hobo'in BMX' az !!!!! If ya see any asswipes smashing glass at the park hold ya ground an tell 'em ta " fuck right off " , as the boy's that clean it up get sicka sweepin up the glass !!! Bad Karma to them !!! That's the problem with no lights at the park ya get idiots doin stupid shit an they ain't seen do'in it , WANAKA SKATE PARK needs lights not only so ya can ride at night but ta mostly stop dorks shitting & smashing glass all over it !! Yep shit i've cleaned up human shit twice , WTF !! why don't they go shit on the grass like the mungrels they are !!!! ha ha !!!

Well that is as soon as it stops raining & snowing ha ha ( i want it to keep raining !!) an gets a chance to dry out & pack abit more, the local kids will be up ta Lismore Park an i bet ya they'll start throwing themselves in all sorts of directions mostly up skyward ha ha ha !!!! Yep Wanaka jump park is finished !!!! Well that's according to what the word on d street & d local paper anyway, but don't believe everything ya hear or read , right ?
Well as soon as it's dry enough it'll be a roll or 2 on that big line ( i didn't see any 30 footers tho?? maybe half that, don't believe d hype ha ha !!) it wont take much tho as it's well packed & hard an the big line seems to work alright !!!!! just abit of wind will do it, as for the rest of the place/jumps it'll be soft & slow for a wee while yet, so i'd say keep off those wet, soft lines an if see any puddles don't ride thru 'em !!! Skids are way more fun ha ha !!
Cheers to the QLDC for the land & the L.W.C.I. for perservering an get'in legal permission to build the jump park , as we all know what happens when ya don't get legal permission to build bicycle tracks on Maori land etc etc....... so after a big reality check for everyone who rides or digs around wanaka !!!! some good always comes outta some bad, like the new jump park, supply on demand !! Oh yeah & thanks to the 123 crew for buildin the place !!!! i hope it all works out nicley for ya !!!! i hope the fall is good & the drainage is sweet ???? we'll find out with all this rain,who's up for some mud sliding !!!! so go get dirty.
So check out the next issue of SPOKE magazine, the word is there's gonna be a some pic's some of those trick's they do on dirt jumps & an a few words ha ha ha i think i missed the trick's , eitherway pilgrims it's thank's ta all the diggers out there , keep on diggin , where ever you are !!!! it's snowing on my window right now !!! (4:30 pm Kiwi time)
