We packed up our tent around 6pm and headed to the bowl for a celebration of our success of the day and our good friend Erich Bambei's birthday. I invited along a photographer friend of mine Alex Smythe and this is what he saw through his lens that night.
Jack was skating like a madman. This is his go-to trick, melon front disaster. This is also one of many war faces that Jack often makes

Bambei was ripping as always. He skates faster than anyone i've ever seen before. With huge airs, long grinds, steady consistency, Bambei is going to be around for a while. Be on the lookout for this guy. Front lipslide
Bambei, blunt nosegrab
Jack, front tail block. Jack and Bambei were just feeding off each other. It was rad to watch these two go at it.

Jack, judo disaster
Jack Carlson. True skate rat
Always the crowd pleaser, Bambei with the upper atmosphere tuck knee. Ripper
All in all it was a damn good day. Everyone was juiced and it showed. This was Alex's first time shooting skate photos and i think he made the cut. See you next time
