Towards the tail end of September as winter came to a close in the Southern Hemisphere, Ben Ferguson, Scotty James, and crew took to the slushy spring mountains of Australia. The squad had a few motorcycles, courtesy of Harley-Davidson and an RV that doubled as a chase vehicle/home thanks to some friends at Redbull. We bobbed and weaved through the mountains and jungles of Australia, making our way up to Thredbo to skate the famous blue ramp & participate in the 30th anniversary of Australian Snowboarding. We headed South, hung out with some roos, and had a few days of sessions on a big old jump at Falls Creek. We headed even further south and got some waves outside of Melbourne before having ourselves a hefty sushi party night and buzzing back to the states to prep up for Winter in our hemisphere… Seems like it’s been going well for the boys, Scotty’s got that X-Games Gold, Ben’s off riding neck deep powder in Japan – Either way here’s a quick rewind back to 6 months ago in Australia.
