A year down under… A surf Mecca, endless sunshine and perfect slippery roads of all shapes and sizes! I followed this dream and I'm going to tell you what it’s like and how to do it.
This camp is for those aiming to improve there riding to a level where they can hit the big events safely. Nowhere else is offering this opportunity, especially in such a great locations with so many disciplines.
Dale Goodwin visits New Zealand for skate and explore!
We spoke to Cam & Henry to find out more about their drone/skate adventure across Europe. Five weeks, eight countries, three skate events and twenty hours of footage crammed into under ten minutes.
– Cam Deegan –
This was my third ‘Eurotour’. Good friend and Videographer Henry Hayhurst joined me for the whole trip. We began the month-long skate pilgrimage in the UK. Then made our way into Germany to pick up Deen Mondt. Our car crew complete for the entirety of the trip.
Our first real stop was in the Czech Republic, at the infamous Kozakov Challenge, then we travelled deeper south to Slovenia for the week long KNK freeride. The last scheduled stop on the list was the Italian race Verdicchio. Apart from these three events we had no plans, only to go with the flow and see what happened. This was the best decision we made. In past years I’ve found that over-planning makes a structured and difficult trip. The best things to happen on the road are often the unexpected.
Once we stepped foot back in the motherland we had 20 hours of footage to trawl through and edit. Two solids day and shabam, here she is: Europa. Watch in 1080p for maximum enjoyment levels.
– Henry Hayhurst –
I got a message from Cam Deegan asking if I wanted to film him in Europe . With no hesitation I bought a drone and booked a month of work. A week later I found my self driving to Frankfurt. It was a real eye opener, it was my first time in Europe and seeing downhill long-boarding racing.
It was the first time for many things and flying the drone was one, making my 15 second edits (which you can find on my Instagram) to the eight minute feature below. I could see my progression in the editing and the smoothness of the drone operation. It was also my first time making a skate edit. For me “Europa" is the beginning of my film career.
Team rider Ras (BTR) organised a road trip to the Welsh outback, he was accompanied by Thrill Magazine team riders Joe and Connor, friend Vasilis and some new female blood from Sweden, Germany and Lithuania.
After rallying through twenty miles of single lane roads we checked in at the Grand Vista hotel.
The free central heating was the best part of our room service.
The unique sleeping pods the hotel had to offer were a pleasant surprise!
The hotel’s driveway was pretty awesome, we decided to stay a while and play skateboards.
Canary Finch rides the edge of traction through the first righty.
Jenny throws a speed check mid-run.
Ras BTR charging into the Colosseum of pine trees.
Canary again, gettin’ it.
When he isn’t gettin’ it, he contemplates the point of cyclists wearing aerodynamic lycra… “They ride slowly up hills and apply their brakes down the hill. It just doesn’t make sense”
When Ras BTR contemplates, he thinks of nothing but ENGORILE.
Alex has Spanish blood. Feeling cold, she donned her hoody in 25+ degree heat whilst most of us were stripping off and getting sunburned.
She also has Swedish blood, that’s why she bosses corners!
Vasilis gets some gangster lean through the righty, POW!
It can’t be a UKDH session without a bit of breakdancing!
Until next time, folks!
