I didn’t ride everyday but I did ride every month and every month theres something pretty all time to do, thanks to all the friends who did this with me.
Slash shot last year in the slack country, printed this year in the CHILL Mag.
The mountains have always been calling and always will, there is far more to explore out there even if the wind is ripping over a ridge, your legs and lungs are burning from the climb and there is more to come before the summit.
During the 2011 winter, I produced a series of snowboarding videos “The Clubbies” about the lifestyle and riding that goes on in a number of small and obscure ski fields in the South Island of New Zealand, great places with very interesting stories and some awesome snow. The series was three episodes long with each […]
This was my entry for the CHILL Film Feast short film competition over the weekend, I had been planning on making this while filming and working out how much awesome footage wouldn’t make the actual edits, then was asked to put something into the Film Feast. I didn’t know it was a competition, I hadn’t even started making it till after the entries closed and even claim in the middle of it some of my shots aren’t any good.
With the snow season coming up soon Chill have released their winter mag, keeping the scene up to date with everything from the club fields and after last season I felt like I hadn’t shot many photos while concentrating on the Clubbies film series but after I scrolled the hard drives and submitted a whole bunch I came out with 15 shots published as well as writing 1 article and appearing in 2 more photos so not too bad in the end and this shot to me just shows the Chill vibe as it’s meant to be. Bring on winter.
The third and final of this season’s series of The Clubbies has been a massive learning curve but also really cool to work on and thanks to a massive amount of people who helped out in many ways. Next year may be back in a new format but who knows.
It’s definitely been an interesting season and a little while since the first ep came out but with the Chill series and other commitments we got around to making this and as always Liam killed it.
So here it is the first of what will hopefully be continuing for a while to build upon this little story, thanks to everyone involved and Dereck who is the man. Check the ep to find out why. Follow the rest of the story on www.theclubbies.com
