local hilarity goes on...

in local lil 'ol Wanaka news........read the artical b4 ya read my rant.....


now all this coming from a kid who hardly never ever digs @ Lismore (he's not the only one either), i'd like to see your re-build plans, yes he kicks ass on his bike for sure there's no doubt about that, don't get me wrong either good on 'em for doing well at the NZ (MTB) Dirt Jump (not) Open, there's always gonna be the DIGGERS & the RIDERS, an it ain't about wheel size either but more about "principles/etiquette! Lismore's like a co-op, we all ride it so we should all help keep it running sweet! So along with a few other local lads i to thought it was amusingly interesting seeing this in the local paper today (most people in this town have no idea what dirt jumping/trails are an wet their pants seeing Lismore) Elmo sure was getting plenty a height a couple nights back in Lismore, I think right now tho he's just dug a hole for himself, time to for us diggers to get wowed by your diggin skills, good luck getting outta this one. I hear wood chip piles are fun?

hang'in & rolling trails, dubs, dirtjumps, piles a dirt is all about having a goodtime & in Wanaka Lismore has slowly helped unite the riders here who enjoy jumping bikes over piles a dirt, Lismore keeps us happy & we can roll all year round pretty much yup were soo lucky. I can definitely think of better jumps/trails i'd rather ride, but Lismore is better than nothing at all, right? Ya gotta thank Dan for that! I'm old, i have no idea, i dig to much, my back hurts haha & i only just found out that dirt jumping was all about tricks on MTB's in the air....hang on, wait a minute dudes have been jumping bicycles over piles a dirt for over 30 years mang hahaha it ain't NEW here or anywhere else in the world.

Pete doing a trick at lismore, i hope it counts cos it ain't a backflip, one word "ADAPTABILITY" is what makes a good rider, being able to go anywhere, ride anything, do a stunt or 2 & have a goodtime!
-------------------------------------------------------
Yeah Lismore still needs to progress/grow more & can always do with more dialing in that's what, how it always is at trails & winters all about (3 weeks till Dan get's a loader to fix the big stuff) getting that stuff sorted, ya just gotta remember it's a public park so safty 1st it'll never look like Catty (imagine that), yes the Gorge is rad & public but built by someone else, thats the cool thing about trails they are all different because of the people who create them, that's obvious. 6 dudes (men) have been working alot in Lismore over the past 2 weeks an Elmo's not one of them i am, no ones getting paid to dig it's purely for the love of it. So keep on having fun at our expense, it's our free time too, if you can't trick the jumps boo hoo go build some trickable jumps somewhere else or just enjoy yaself & have fun......it's hard to please everyone & there's always gonna be politics, gay & hilarious all at the same time at public dubs/jumps/trails/piles a dirt.

old washed up riders like me can do tricks at lismore or is it just easier to do tricks on a BMX get serious the bigger the wheels the more stable the flight! FACT! Try a day a NO TRICKS (tabo's ain't tricks they're just timeless HA!)
----------------------------------------------------------
Time to get a foam pit dude the Gorge is shut for winter & expect some heckling next time i see ya "your not ever gonna get high enough at Lismore, unless ya smoke a spliff, i don't no why ya even ride here you can't learn tricks" hahahha! Here's some food for thought kiwi kids...."How many towns in New Zealand are lucky enough to have public jump parks"...not many, so be thankful with what ya got dudes or start ya own dubs! There's a few to many spoilt rich smart ass lazy little ratty Wanaka kids that ride Lismore (OUCH), tooo much is handed to ya on a platter...start earning it,trails ain't about a free ride! Help out & dig more, see ya at Lismore . Reporters need to do their home isn't that what reporters are mean't to do?

so leave a comment or read the comments/ya own rant if ya got no life like me, keen to hear other peeps thoughts on this, cheers Jimmy
( i'm really a very positive person...)

goodtimes, hang'in in woods, digging & riding........what trails are all about
so whinge less & roast!



i kno these have all been seen a million times but dam they are RAD! Over & over & over again!





these last 2 vids have nothing to do with trails, i guess thats dam obvious tho, the human body is a amazing thing the way it heals & the way it looks, oh yes


an don't ya just love artistic photography, i should've been a photography student, the perks look so good. Whoa i need a life...i'm sure can find one, a life, on the net..... somewhere!

i think your on the money there, what kind a mum puts their kid in a hole like this, a proud mum who did'nt do her the home work. I havn't been to lismore but it looks pretty fun.

just another digger

youngbloods are the same everywhere, they all want to be sponsoured superstars that don't think they need to help at the trails. Leave the hard work upto the older guys. At our trails if you don't dig you don't ride either at private trails you can enforce it 100% & lock them up when you leave. At public jumps i think your in trouble unless the youngbloods show some common sense & help out. Goodluck. I hope to visit NZ next year an Wanka is on the list.

lismore is great fun and dirt jumping is way beta when ur trail steeze becomes sicker than any old flip. i used to think tricks wer where it was at but boosting supa high n snaping a nice tuck or table is just so sick. DIG DIG DIG and you might just get sum input into what goes on at ya jumps. in chch shits getting real n ppl are being asked to leave if they dont put in fuk all effort. Boom Hammerz im out. Andrew. Bvale. CHCH

TRUBMX said...

keep it coming guys & maybe the slackers in Wanaka might just realize what it's all about ie contribution in some form @ lismore be it sweeping, picking up rubbish, digging or just plain moving wheel barrows full a dirt........they can't be told to leave lismore but we can make 'em feel "not welcome" if they're lazy!

thomas said...

yeah straight up if dont dig dont knock the jumps your riding. I was lucky enough to have a roll at lismore all by myself in late feb, while on a family road trip down south (from Welly). and full respect to the diggers, the place is rad!! proper trail steez. Thanks for doing the hard yards in such a public place. I know we will face similar problems(whingy snots with no respect) here soon enough with the new jumps up Karori..

Just because it's a public jump park it does not mean you don't help out. I like to idea of trails being run like a co-op, everyone helps & reaps the rewards. Just leave the lips upto someone who knows what their doing. What gives Elmo the right to be an expert & put down some jumps he never built? Just because you want to be the next big thing in NZ dirt jumping does not give you that right, in fact it makes you & your lazy buddies look real bad. You should stay at the skate park on your MTB or wake up, get some blisters on your hands & get behind your spot. Just be thankful with what you have got! We don't have any legal trails, but were working on it. Why is everybody these days so focused on learning tricks, just flow & style it up. It's a lot less painful in the long run

nice vids Jimmy they put a smile on my dial, why don't hot chicks hang out at trails? may be a bar is needed to lure them girls in. It's always a sausage fest in our woods

sounds like your little expert needs to stay at the skate park or build a box jump to learn new tricks on. Trails are not about tricks the x-games are or move to Oz they don't have public trails either but there are plenty a good trail spots, trouble is most of the trails are built by BMX's so you will need a BMX to ride them after a few weeks of digging they might even let you ride! NO DIG = NO RIDE

TRUBMX said...

some peeps have a warped sense a humour, don't you just love it! I think the big issue here is there is a bunch a local dudes mostly youngbloods that cleaf off to the skank park as soon as tools come out or just show up when works getting done an don't offer to help & also then clear off to the skank park.

the local MTB club don't do nothing to maintain Lismore so it's become a CO-OP = team work & there's always something to do wether it be picking up the rubbish the youngbloods drop, sweeping, stacking a bit a dirt & fixing holes in landings & flat's, don't touch the lips if ya don't have those skills. All the real heavy work is done by a machine, which leaves only easy stuff really......dudes are just plain lazy & are all bitching hard right now, not to my face tho cos they ain't got the balls to! The slackers know who they are then don't they & remember it's a small town & i got eye's & ears everywhere seriously! if ya got a prob say it to my face! Cos i've told you slackers loads to ya face that ya slackers hahha!

TRUBMX said...

ps Dan just got a loader into lismore yesterday morning an dam the mother of all berms has been partly built, plus a couple a things have been fixed up & dialed in some! I'll put some pic's up soon! Big ups Dan & cheers Brett for the machine! psyched!

fuck james , this is pretty low, wouldnt expect you to be bagging on somone 20+ years younger than you.. how many kids do you know that actualy do dig ? just cos elmos good you dont needa put the spot light on him . and im pretty sure its obvious just watching elmo ride that hes not all about tricks.. probly got the best style in wanaka.Definitly not impressed on this post. You say your a positive person .. how positive do you think elmos gonna be after you post this shit on the web. Nice job "dirt marster"

TRUBMX said...

open a can a worms then...

1st things 1st, It's got nothing to do with age, it's just number people hide behind, an excuse not to pull ya weight.

2, hardly baggin Elmo i could've been a whole lot harsher but i wasn't mr anonymous, i'm sure ya got a name.....use next time.

3, i kno plenty a local kids that dig Hunter, Monty, Ollie, Kyass, Max, Fishbowl to name a few! Even Elmo's diggin now...even if it's only something he'll ride. Every little bit helps out.

4, Elmo's already in the spot light! DUH! local paper, NZ MTB Mag "Spoke", intrudershitnet etc etc.

5, Elmo loves his tricks who doesn't have a small bag full? Why else would he be try'in to learn tailwhips everytime the air bag comes out, Elmo's bag a tricks is pretty full a stunts. He's just progressed faster than his local spot has. Don't trick 'em pile's a dirt then, if ya If ya not happy with a spot build your own, if you've got the time to put the effort in that is. So what if the suns in ya face late afternoon, dig/fix stuff instead then ride when it's not in ya face.

6, Elmo's got rad style for sure, he kicks ass i already said that. There are a few more kids in Wanaka that style it up too. He's not the only one.

7, this "shits" already on the web fool!

8, i'm as positive as i need to be, if boys build, dig or fix stuff up i give them the props they deserve & if their local kids, that just turn up, when people are working, ride, then/or fuck off with out even asking if ya need a hand/is there something i can do, well i'm not gonna be so positive to them am i. Would you?

I'm at Lismore almost everyday so i kno what's going on in there Right......how often have you been to lismore? Do you even dig or kno what your on about? Dirt master? what the hell is that hahha! You Douche bag.

max said...

That article was poorly writin!. At the end of the day they are public djs. you cant control things like this.i have seen most of the local riders that actually like riding dirt help out. wanaka is a grumpy little town sometimes.

Farmer said...

Fuckin aye, d master and dan are fags

Raph said...

The fact is posting it on the Internet isn't guna get you far put a sign up at lismore no dig no ride. But I have noticed that when ever I have Been there the sheds locked how do we dig if we don't have a shovel or hose etc to use. Also next time your at the skate park give respect to skaters it's a skate park, I remember when it opened bikers weren't aloud in should be grateful.
Raph the rollerskater.
Learn respect age is just a number but yet 16 the brain isn't develped your in the peak of puberty words can affect check your self before you reck yourself

TRUBMX said...

wow lots a traffic tonight & real well informed intellegent opinions & veiws on how it is here in Wanaka hahha this really is local hilairity at it's best, who's laugh'in now! Nice try Ralph, bring your own tools ie buy some. Your the only ones "backing Elmo up" at least you & Farmer used your names, nice to see some kids with balls hahaha, Farmer went to far tho, oh dear. Respect at the skate park hahhaa do you even understand what your saying? Picking on Elmo, bagging on Elmo hahha come on please, you can read right? I say bulldoze lismorethen what will you do...ride the skate park, oh dear you sad little children.

TRUBMX said...

here's some intellegence then aye kids, go on give it ago

"i have seen some but not most of the locals dig too" yup public jumps now there's something to be PSYCHED about!

So here's the plan. If you local wanaka riders like riding dirt jumps an helping out, it makes perfect sense to have a "PERMINANT" local's (non-locals welcome & skaters) weekly work day @ Lismore, who just shuddered at that commitment? A slacker i bet, it's time to really do it not just talk about it. Lismore needs constant up keep, it's not a sk8 park

Starting this Saturday...an if there's nothing to do come Saturday each week we ride more & dig less! Simple!

an for those that don't get it here it is again...

LISMORE WORKDAY Saturday 22 May 9am-1pm or till dark (every Saturday).....dig some,
ride some, dig some more, you know actualy help out! Local pride in local digs! Lismore can be dailed all YEAR round IF YOU REALLY CARE!

Jimmy

ps Max, it's not about control either, work days are about making bonds with fellow riders, developing social skills, unity & love, everyone sharing the load you kno hippy shit & that's fair.....but don't worry everbody the dudes who have been doing all the work for the past MONTH/19 months will still dig, sweep, patch holes, waterdown, pack, slap, pick up rubbish every day of the week and/or anytime were at Lismore!.....even some nights with lights the more you help out the more right have with ideas & new lines! That's also very FAIR! So what's there to be grumpy about! Having no life? HA! See you Saturday

TRUBMX said...

i've counted 7 comments backing Elmo up, but 3 were utter foul mouthed trash, i'll post any comment if it's intellegent (Farmers an exception what a idiot haha) & back ya words up with your name! Right....

Jimmy

TRUBMX said...

it's amazing how you can keep an eye on people thru facebook & dig some facts up! Elmo's mum did not write the article, Max is right "very poorly writen" it shouldn't have been in the local paper, but it's good to light the fire with. This is all gotten blown way outta proportion, if what i wrote offends you, help out more then, simple!

jordan v said...

Eloms dope ! you cant please every one!
" I say bulldoze lismorethen what will you do...ride the skate park, oh dear you sad little children. "

man whats wrong with riding the skate park? i know if i lived in wanaka thats were id ride!

TRUBMX said...

your a bit behind the times JV & your repeating stuff already said haha, it's a figure of speech & a wind up! There's nothing wrong with the skate park here in Wanaka, we all kno it kicks ass! What was sad was the lack of help in lismore ie everyone clearing off to the park & not diggin.....but after the weekend just gone it seems that's all changed for the best with everyone getting involved & helping in Lismore! If you did live here i'd wind you every now & then to haha! How's that Tierra frame going you little drunk! Been riding Stony at all haha!

jv said...

haha , oohhhh i see ! umm its sweet aye ! ill be up in the w.e to riddde.. and might even pick up a shovel ! ;)
