There is a race on this weekend in Tasmania, called King Of The Zig. Most of the team have never skated in Tasmania, the island is filled with awesome hills and mountains, and it seemed like an a perfect time to share our brand of steez and stoke to the Tassie brotherhood. Jackson Shapiera has emailed in the Day One of the Tasmanian Devil Tour: I'm on a computer at a pizza place in the middle of B F nowhere. There shall be no photos today... A long day and a crazy adventure so far on the little apple island of ozzie. After a couple of months of lurking in Sydney the crew are back on the road on the endless summer skate vacation in search of rad new hills and unskated terrain. This time we have gone south to Tasmania in search of long mountain roads and to race the King Of The Zig race in Launceston this weekend. Myself, Benny, Gabe, Kelly and Yates all rocked up nice and early this morning in Launy and piled into a nice large skate van and got comfortable for a long journey through the middle highlands west towards the mountain ranges. Our destination for the day was Queenstown on the west coast, however on the way we plotted a route that took us along the windiest roads on the map up and over the mountains. What we found were some incredible views, amazing mountain ranges, and long windy roads. The first few that we stopped at were pretty damn long, however the surface was a little less than desirable and there were a few wet patches due to the morning's sprinkle, so we decided to power on and cover more ground. After another hour driving through amazing scenery and crazy mountain terrain we stumbled upon a crazy fast road filled with left and right sweeping corners, fast straights and a couple of long hairpin bends. First we stopped for a much needed sanga break and then proceeded to shred the appropriate amount of gnar. Was good to get the tuck legs working again as there has been so many changes at the shop lately (plus a nice learning curve with some of the groms 2 weeks ago) its been hard to find time to bomb long hills. It was even better to be in another new place with some of ozzie's best skaters and great mates. After a couple of runs we got back on the road and continued through the mountains and the 'no reception no maps' zone until we arrive closer to Queenstown. The road into Queenstown was shit. absoluteness shit. never skate there ever in your life. its not worth skating. they call it 99 corners however we called it 99 spews... .....just kidding. It was bloody epic. Raddest hill around for sure.... more stories tomorrow!
