A Mad-Dog adventure to skate the cliffs, hills, towns and big cities of Australia's East coast. Crammed in the Skate Australia van soaking up the, beers, bands, babes, beaches and board-riding lifestyle.
Skate Australia is a 50 minute documentary to be shot across multiple locations in the Summer of 08/09.
We're always looking for more skaters to join the project, so add us and send us a message if you'd like to be part of Australia's first internationally distributed Longboarding DVD!
Also we'll be featuring a soundtrack of entirely local artists from the areas we're shooting. Hip-Hop, Reggae/Dub, Electro Pop, PsyTrance, Drum n Bass and Rock n Roll, we love it All. We want music to suit every location, so let's show the world the awesome music we Australians love to make.

Well on the way to Sydney to take Steve and Jacko home the Skate Australia van overheated and died with a massive jet of steam. After getting it towed to Goulburn, everyone else hitched back home, and I then go the van back to Canberra. Then that night after driving a dead car home on the highway at 40ks an hour for about 3 hours, my 2 camera cases, including 4 cameras and all the footage was stolen from my van while it was parked in the driveway of my parents house.
So guys... All I got is photos :) and I'll work to put them up and show everyone. But at this stage I'm flat broke with a dead van and no chance of getting this film up to scratch for the international doco conference in february. I just want to thank everyone so much for all the awesome support and enthusiasm I was given for this project. I would never have even dreamed it would get as far as it did without all the encouragement and ideas from my friends, family and the skating community. As I said, the film was making itself.
I'm gonna take a bit of time off now and think about what I'm gonna do. If insurance pays off everything then I'll start all over again! Why the fuck not eh?
