Morgan Campbell Favourite Four’s

4 best chalkies

1) Barcelonetta banks, Spain (They are those helicopter seeds, perfectly designed chalkie).

2) Belconnen skatepark, Canberra. I hit a rock on approach to the trannie mannie and slide for at least 20 metres on my side.

3) Ballbearing ball in Ballarat, Melbourne which catapulted me into the side of a quarter as I appraoced the channel for an ollie. Swear I nearly died.

4) The Kebabislide in London, England.

Four Family Vacation

Hitting the road with the family can yield surprising results. In this case everyone put up with thier fair amount of good and bad luck. We managed to hold it together and enjoy the good times and deal with the bad in a manner, which would make any parents proud. Each person on the trip played an important role in making this vacation one to remember.

The Experienced One

4_Adl_Trip_Morgan2

Morgan: Wally Howard Grinding down one of Melbourne famous yellow tram barriers.

Uncle Morgz (Morgan Campbell) has been on more than his fair share of skate missions. His experience is vital and he isn’t afraid to share his wealth of knowledge around with the younger members of the crew. His ability to mix having the best time ever and taking care of business is second to none, having that drive to do the best you can in any situation definitely inspires the younger generation to get busy.

The Reliable One

4_Adl_Trip_Mike

Mike Spotted this Wally over an obscure bike rack at this famous Adelaide bank spot.

Mike Martin could be on the most reliable people we have ever met. When comes down to the crunch Mike will be there ripping on his board, driving the van and Oscar grinding his life away.
Mike did not complain at all when he created a tennis ball on the side of his knee, which again prematurely ended his trip skate wise, but still manned the wheel or attended to the esky.
When he is off the clock he is reliable in creating laughs. Mike is essential.

The Menace

Eugene Stewart is a genius, somewhat of a retarded genius but genius nonetheless. He always up to something and has earn’t the nickname the menace from his antics, rather than anything to do with the 90s board brand.
Dealing with a bad bout of luck on this trip, whilst jumping a fence to retrieve Uncle Morgz’s board he manage to jump back over and roll his ankle on a hidden curb which took him out of skating for the rest of the trip. The menace’s good deeds punished with a rolled ankle, Karma were you at?

The Calm One

On arrival to Adelaide our less than accommodating host was highly-strung and highly suspicious of our 8-man posse rolling into his “serviced” apartments. Harry Clark just managed to keep up from being evicted before any bags were even in the rooms by this stressed out maniac. He was convinced our behaviour would mimic the last large group of men who passed through on their end of season footy trip when a carton of beers was being carried upstairs. The lack of “customer service” this guys displayed  could easily have made any man snap. Harry not known for the ability to hold his tongue, kept it together as did the whole posse for the rest of the trip.

The Speedy One

Ducky: A high risk 5050 pop over.

Casey Foley is a talented guy, inspired by hip hop, excelling in photography and straight no complies he is definitely on to look out for. We are always psyched to get to spend some quality time with him. Ducky powerhouses his way around spots, going much faster than need be, showing off his exquisite flat ground and usually finding somewhat of a different or better approach then most.

Casey has some quick feet, a few ollies heading upwards before Nollie Flipping to fakie.

 

The Unfortunate One.

Ricky Watt had a rough holiday. Whilst bombing a random car park at night  in Melbourne he managed to slam heavily, misalign a disc in his back and bruise some internal organs by hitting a curb whilst dodging a car.
Add in a bout of gastro in Adelaide from retrieving Uncle Morgzs board from a sess pit in an Adelaide drain spot (Morgan got sick a week later, the only other person to touch the contaminated board) it sums up his trip. He was happy to be away from home and even his bad situation couldn’t take the smile off his face, in between vomiting.

All photos: Jason Morey. Moey was obsessed by the double banana. A freak of nature that yields 2 bananas in one skin. Moey is also a freak of nature behind the lens and on a skateboard, with many people agreeing he is better then most sponsored skateboarders in the land. Thanks for shooting and ripping Moey.

Our man behind the lens Geoff Campbell managed to slip out on a stair grind and head-butt the floor on the last day before 12am, definatly the heaviest slam I have ever seen taken before midday. Geoff managed to split his lip and copped a good old fashioned black eye. After seeing such a fall the entire posse gave Geoff a pass to chill for the day, he just drank a few beers and kept skating and filming deep into the night. Thank for all your hard work Geoff.
