Queenstown. Friday Night. Snowboarders. Scaffolding, fences and rails. Mix all the previous and you get the Queenstown Winter Festival Rail Jam.
After a few days trapped at home because of the rain, I went up to Snowpark to help out with a new episode of the “Hallway” and one from “Snowdice”. Good fun doing laps and watching the crew stomp some tricks. Can wait for the season to officially start.
Everything changes with a sled, freshly groomed jumps and nobody around doesn’t it?. I was packing when I got a txt. “Come up to Cardis now! it’s on!!!” And it was.
JJ, Abby, Will and Joram waiting to drop.
We finished quite late, sun was going down and the dust was getting in the car. Thanks Crispin!
Under a burning sun, L.P.R., Joram and I went up to Cardies to shoot a few things that need to be done without people around. Snow was awesome, but the sun was eating us.
And that’s the second feature … it didn’t work the way I thought but anyway …
Beautiful sunny day at Cardies, we showed up a bit late and everything was slushy as … so we started a mini session at the mini pipe. All good until Ben got a bit hurt trying the trick above. Glad he got a helmet.
After a morning of sorting stuff out for another shoot that I have in mind, made my way up to Snowpark to get some shots. Jay Walsh and Joram Makuru hiking it to hit it. Aaaah, and my board over there with a broken binding, I was a 1 footer all day. Sketchy!!!
And after, while the NZSBU meeting was on, I kept exploring possibilities for other shots that I want.
