It was the week before Christmas, and all through the land, festive cheer was spreading, so we gave it a hand. We decided to have a bit of a laugh and put together this super high budget Christmas mini-edit with Freeride New Zealand. We got ourselves a rad local shredder – Joseph Nation – put him in an extremely high-quality Santa suit, handed him a beer and sent him off down a hill. It was edge-of-your-seat stuff as the trousers ripped and got caught in the seat on almost every turn. We’re lucky we made it out alive.
Have a great Christmas break, and make sure you get out on your bike!

Yo everyone! Here is a bit of an update for decemebr, mainly some POV shot with the new GoPro Hero 6 and a quick scree edit with Rod Hall.. And a couple of skatepark shots. Keep an eye out for the next post which will be a photo epic with leftovershots that I have been saving for some magazines
The good people at Photo and Video International and Fujifilm NZ let me borrow the Fuji GFX50s medium format camera for the week. This camera is absolutely unreal, the dynamic range and detail is incredible. I couldn’t post all of the photos I shot below as I have sent some off for publications, but there are a range of images I shot through the week below, including Ben riding some of the Lyttleton MTB Trails and some scenic shots from Coleridge.
