After innumerable hold-ups, the Canada 2008 video is finally here!

A compilation featuring all our pals from Rossland and Whistler - and the best footage from the season!

For a high quality version you can download the movie, in either MPEG or DIVX formats, using the links below:

Prior to a recent injury, I have been hitting up the launch ramp in the Whistler skatepark - and over the last 6 weeks have put together a collection of streetboarding footage and imagery:

Many thanks to Aaron Rogers for some of these images.

My plans to visit the Squamish skatepark has been put on hold temporarily while my hip heals up - but I shall be travelling there over the next week as the park is one of the best designed I have come across, and with less than 2 months left in Whistler - time is running short.

In the meantime, the respite has given us more time to go mountain biking and visit the nearby lakes.

Mountain biking is a great way to see valley, and there are some places that you can only reach via the valley trails...

My hip is on the mend, so I am looking forward to being back streetboarding again soon - and coming back to you with a review of Squamish skatepark...

Until then, sit back & enjoy the movie...
