PORT MACQAURIE. AUSTRALIA

magalee and my boy olson were out from old europe. so we too them up the coast... fishing is hard hard hard work!!!!!






COLLECTOR. AUSTRALIA.

2 car loads of us bombed a sneaky canberra mission. as always it was amazing. on the way we stopped by collector. burman caught a massive blue tongue lizard. so we played round with that little creature.
we also found a knife at collector. while driving to canberra ook was having a little nap and dane put the knife in his face. in his sleep ook grabbed the knife!!! click the last photo and check a close up of ooks straw moustache!!! get that thing back ASAP!!!!
p.s. my camera ran out of battery on the way to canberra so there was no more photos. ):









TUMUT. AUSTRALIA.

i went with hawley to tumut (far south west new south wales australia... like 4-5 hours from sydney). we did some skate coaching thing for a weekend. hawley loves stacking the boards for an ollie, whilst i stack the food on the tab. we found a road-kill king brown snake (one of the deadliest snakes in the world)!!!

ABANDONED SCHOOL NEAR BONDI BEACH, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA.

WE WERE PLANNING TO GO FILMING ON WHAT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A BIGHT AND FUNNY MONDAY. BUT OF COURSE IT RAINED. WHICH ACTUALLY TURNED OUT FOR THE BEST. NATHAN HO aka OOK, NEW OF AN ABANDONED SCHOOL IN MY NEW NEIGHBORHOOD. WHILE DRIVING TO THE SPOT HE ALSO INFORMED ME THAT THERE WAS A MINI RAMP MADE OUT OF THE OLD CHALK BOARDS!!!! SOME DICKS HAD RIPPED OFF BOTH PLATFORMS FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE MINI, RIPPED ONE HALF COMPLETELY TO PEICES SO THE ONCE PERFECT RAMP WAS NEALLY UNSKATEABLE. BUT SHANE MARTIN SHORTED THAT SHIT OUT WITH A COUPLE GNARRRLY BS NOSEBLUNTS! SHANE ENDED UP GETTING A MILLION CLIPS. GEORGE GOT BROKE OFF. OOK WAS CHEEKY. AND ALL IN ALL WE HAD AN AMAZING DAY EVEN THOUGH IT WAS RAINING . . . . . . . . UNFORTUNATELY THE RAMP WAS 100% SCRAPPED A FEW DAYS LATER!!! I THINK WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE THE LAST SESSION!!!

VIETNAM, DALAT 2 LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM . . .

I WOKE UP EXTREMELY BUMMED THAT I ONLY HAD 4 HOURS LEFT IN DALAT. ESSENTIALLY THE LAST 4 HOURS OF MY 2 MONTH ASIA TRIP AS I WAS ABOUT TO BACK TRACK TO HANOI TO FLY BACK TO AUSTRALIA. SO I DECIDED TO GET OUT OF THE HOTEL ASAP AND GO FOR A PHOTO MISSION. I ALWAYS THINK THE BEST WAY TO EXPLORE CITY IS TO GET A LOST. I STUMBLED ACROSS SOME REALLY COOL MARKETS. THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE WERE EXTREMELY CO-OPERATIVE WITH STREET PHOTO SHOOTS. I HAVE HEARD OTHERWISE FROM OTHER TRAVELERS "YOU HAVE TO PAY THEM MOPNEY TOO TAKE PHOTOS" BUT THIS WASNT THE CASE.
THERE WAS ONE ATTRACTION I COULDN'T MISS AND THAT WAS "THE CRAZY HOUSE". THE OWNER WAS A VIETNAMESE BORN LADY WHO STUDIED ART AND ARCHITECTURE IN RUSSIA FOR MANY YEARS. HER DREAM WAS TO RETURN TO VIETNAM AND BUILD HER DREAM GUEST HOUSE. AND HERE IT IS. THE STAIRS LEADING TO THE TOP OF THE HOUSE WERE WELL SKETCHY WITH THE RAILINGS ON THE SIDES BUILT FOR SMURFS AT ABOUT 1 FOOT IN HEIGHT. THE OTHER SIDE A PAINFUL 20-20 METER DROP....
I URGE U IF YOU EVER HAVE A LITTLE MONEY SAVED GO VISIT VIETNAM!!!!!! I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE I MET ALONG THE TRIP!!!! HOPE YOU ARE ALL HEALTHY AND WELL...
