XAir was on, and there was an influx of skateboarders in Tauranga. Garth, the great host he is, made sure his backyard pool was ready to make the most of the opportunity. The DMs ran wild, and within an hour, a who’s who of the NZ skateboard industry was poolside in semi-rural Tauranga. I only had the camera out for 30 minutes, and I’d got my fill. I even had time for a few chicken scratches before sundown.
