Team riders Alex Hiam, Josh Dove, Jayden Fuller, Dean Anderson and Clint Millar, headed to Slam Factory Indoor Skatepark on the Central Coast in January to bring some of the NSW scene together for a good old fashioned jam. While the various crews who made the trip to Slam had unique riding styles — from tech-wizards in the bowl to trail-lords on the box jump and street-dogs on the flatrail — everyone had one thing in common; a massive smile on their faces as they shared a fun night riding bikes, catching up with old friends and making some new ones.
I spent almost 2 years filming this video with Dean. With injuries, a full time job and the fact he lives a couple hours from me (and most people) it wasn't like we could just meet up and bang out a few clips then do it all again the next day. In a way it kind of helped because Dean would (usually) come out with a plan of a few things he wanted to get, he'd send it and most times come out on top with a really good clip or two. Dean really didn't hold back on filming for this video and it was a real pleasure capturing it all for him...Cooper
In 2010 Shane McLellan and I had begun stacking clips for a full video project he was working on with a handful of riders in Santa Barbara. We saved what I thought was some of the more unique footage and used the rest for other web videos. As things go, lives change, people move away and these clips sat on my hard drive for the last 5 years.
