Rediscover Oz Tour

The planets sure did aligned today, after a week long tour thru the skateparks of the Mid North Coast we rushed back to Sydney just in time to catch out the Rediscover Oz Tour. The tour featured some of the hottest street skaters on the planet right now including Nyjah Huston (unfortunately injured), Chris Cole and Mike Mo from the US and rad locals Bugs Fardell, Marty Girotto, Jake Hayes & Kieran Reilly. On a very steamy afternoon in Sydney a couple of hundred fans surrounded Waterloo Skatepark and were treated to a spectacular showcase.

For a solid two hours the DC Team shredded all over the wonderful Waterloo plaza the highlights being: Massive grinds/slides on the 6-stair rail and a pile of epic flip tricks atop the 5ft bank. It was amazing to see Chris Cole effortlessly cruise around with just so much control and creativity but Evan Smith was the standout – awesome in every way and just an all-round nice guy. A spectacular afternoon.
