Skate news

As if Jake Duncombe hadn’t already overachieved at age 15, after recently outskating many of the world’s best placing 7th at the Prague World Cup event, Jake’s now in America riding direct for Blind Skateboards. He’ll be in California for at least two more months to film his section for the upcoming ‘What If?’ video.

Back home, the industrious Trent Bonham has been busy setting up his very own board company called ‘Comic.’ Pro models are already available for Bono and Andrew Currie (Etnies), while the team ams so far include Tim Burdett (Etnies) and Dave Harris (Emerica). The first ad will be out in Slam 101, while you can already check out their 10-minute promo video in store now.

The month of September saw Andrew Currie rally the troops for the annual ‘Hoon Run’ to Brisbane and back. Along for the ride, amongst many, were Javier Mendizabal (Etnies Europe) and Jim Fowlie (Es’), and Transworld photographer Mike O’Meally. Check an up coming issue of Slam for the full story.

Never one to lag, Queensland’s Timmy Burdett has just finished shooting for his ASM Interview which features an amazing array of street and tranny annihilation.
