Barber’s Blog: Creature Tour

Posted by markbarber on Thursday February 9 2012

So the Issue of SLAM with my Creature Tour coverage is on the shelves today.

I think I mentioned in a previous blog that it rained a lot of the time, so here are a few of the left over shots of us chilling and a few park shots from when it did dry up enough for some action to go down!

Down on the rocks L-R: Darren Navarette, Taylor Bingaman, Gabriel 'Gabbers' Summers, David Gravette, Emmanuel Guzman and Al Partanen in Newcastle.

After a brutal night of local mushrooms, beers, torrential rain, spider bites, dingo attacks and open flesh wounds Bingaman emerges from a Teepee in Nimbin.

Truman Hooker keeps his distance from one of the friendlier dingos in Nimbin.

OG Thrasher photographer, Rhino, telling a few yarns in Newcastle. Legend!

Ryan Reyes can't decide. Newcastle.

After being caught 'carroting' goods from Woolworths, Gabbers receives his punishment. Newcastle.

First tatt fear! Newcastle.

Gravette gets the worlds worst no-look portrait of himself. Newcastle.
