Oi Mate! episode 202: The Swing of Things

July was a crazy month! Rain washed away all the early season snow. Bringing the season back to life, Mother Nature then dropped half a metre of snow on the Aussie mountains.
Our crew went to Perisher Resort to shoot with AUS & NZ Snowboarding Magazine for the annual 3rd issue/mid winter shoot. We headed down to Falls Creek to hit some new features and test our creative minds by building a mega gap to wallride feature. Once that was all done, we got some sunny park laps in and a special night session on Friday Flats thanks to Thredbo Resort.

Riders: Jye Kearney, Jed Davidson, Troy Sturrock, Mat Galina, Colin Clarke, Greg Murray, Shaun Ingham, Matt Brazil, Daniel Crean, Ant Haddrick, Johan Rosen, Tenzin Butt, Richie Carroll and Charles Morris.

The Oi Mate! series is proudly presented by Boardworld and supported by the great people at Sandboxland, Rhythm Boardstore Cooma, Thredbo Resort, Radical Gloves, 3CS Outerwear, Fyve Snowboards, Now Bindings, Drift Innovation and AUS/NZ Snowboarding Magazine.
