“Our days started with continental breakfast waffles and ended with hot tub beers. In between was spent shovelling sand and swinging at dense rock with sharp objects. For those wondering, pick-axing rock doesn’t get any easier after 5 days. Unfortunately practice was hard on the boys, Mark was taken out early with a broken femur and Thomas late Saturday with broken ribs. Gully survived but left at least 30% of his skin on the Oakley Icon landing. Finals were wild with Aggy’s dipped 3 drop blowing peoples mind and Gully nearly hanging onto a step down flip high up the mountain. Part II features photos of saturday morning through to the end of our journey home – the car broke down so we played frisbee in Parowan, Utah for two days.”
“Round 3 of the Red Bull Rampage with the Rocky Mountain team – Geoff Gulevich, Paris Gore, Eric Lawrenuk, Danny Brody and myself travelled through 4 states in 4 days on the road to the rampage. We met Thomas Vanderham down there. Aggy and Mark were also competing. Part I features photos of our road trip down, up until the friday night before the contest.”
A follow up post to the Rampage 2010 photo gallery – Ross Measures heads back to Utah desert with an Olympus XA.
“Two years removed from the last Rampage, I headed back to Virgin with the Rocky Mountain team of Geoff Gulevich and Thomas Vanderham. The desert was just as dusty, just as dry, and just as hot as 2010. The contest was crazy and the desert was an adventure as always. It seemed as if in the 2 years since, a shoe tree had sprouted up, Geoff donated some shoes. This year our hotel lacked a hot tub so nobody ended up with a form of Legionellosis.”
This photo gallery is actually a re-up from 3 years ago. Featuring photography by Ross Measures at the 2010 Red Bull Rampage.
“I went to Rampage to help Geoff Gulevich, in return he let me sleep on his floor. To make my sleeping arrangements more comfortable I went and picked up an inflatable mattress. While passing thru the Walmart checkout I also picked up a disposable camera. It was an excellent substitute for when I had no desire to carry my forty pound camera bag and fit perfectly in my back pocket. From those 39 photos there were 20 or so that were a good representation of my trip. It was a success, Geoff got 5th, then we all partied in the hot tub till we got Pontiac Fever!”
The final photo set from our Rad Times Tour. We headed coastal and met up with our longtime friends in the trails mecca of Aptos, California. We enjoyed the beach, the burritos and the trails, afterwards we headed north, spending a day in San Francisco bombing the legendary hills and looking for coffee. The photos were shot by Jarrett Moore, Paul Genovese, Eric Lawrenuk, Rupert Walker, Luke Fulton and Ross Measures, on a variety of films and cameras. Click me.
The second of our three part photo series from our Rad Times Tour. The second set is from our adventure to the legendary Gloryhole fullpipe. Skaters have been travelling to the remote 30 foot tall pipe since the late 70's, but these days it is in pretty rough shape with a slow trickle of water constantly flowing. With the thought of being arrested in our minds the entire time, we rafted across the small body of water and had an amazing experience carving up and down the walls. The photos were shot by Jarrett Moore, Paul Genovese, Eric Lawrenuk, Rupert Walker, Luke Fulton and Ross Measures, on a variety of films and cameras. Click me.
The first of our three part photo series from our Rad Times Tour, where we rented an RV and disappeared down the coast of the Western USA. The first photo set features our first stop at an abandoned train bridge in Shelton, Washington. The photos were shot by Jarrett Moore, Paul Genovese, Eric Lawrenuk, Luke Fulton and Ross Measures, on a variety of films and cameras. Click me.
The Rad Times Tour video is finally here.
The thought of renting a 30 foot RV to a group of early 20-something’s must be somewhat terrifying to a rental company, but as long as we didn’t travel to Burning Man we were fine to do whatever we wanted with it. Luckily, Burning Man doesn’t start until late August, so we had no choice but to head to California and escape the BC spring. On board the RV were Wink Grant, Jarrett Moore, Paul Genovese, Aaron Boss, Rupert Walker, and Ross Measures. Driving in our support vehicle were Luke Fulton, Eric Lawrenuk and Brendan Howey.
