Gabe emails in from Wellington New Zealand... Whoa, two days in Wellington and my legs feel like jelly... We rose from our slumber this morning and took the gnarly mountain cable car up to the tight, hairpin haven that is the botanical gardens of Wellington. The gardens are build on a giant hill and have all sorts of crazy, narrow, steep paths running through them. Some so tight and gnarly we had to buttboard down the mossy, wet, hairpins with the camera equipment in hand, scary shit! Jacko throws down a steezy toeside into a footpath hairpin at Wellington Gardens. After a couple of hours filming at some different spots through the gardens we decided to retreat to the skatehouse and wait for Dave Price and his friend Chris. We drove half an hour out of town to a place called Hunters Hill. The road was closed to cars meaning we had to walk up but the sick butter smooth pavement and rad sweeping corners were worth it every time. Such a great spot for throwing down big standup slides through the sweeping corners and the last toeside hairpin was mega fast and slippery if you tucked into it from up top. Gabe gettin' greasy down Hunters on his chopped S9 Annika We finished the day off with a handful of runs at one of the sickest, flowiest runs I have ever ridden down, we are going back there tomorrow morning to do some filming, look forward to some footage of some of NZ's sickest hills. A big thanks to the Wellington Skatehouse boys Api Ihaia, Max Gordy, Ash Hughes for the rad hospitality and skateboarding.
