Ben Ryan from Reason Films has started a camera equipment company. He is selling these camera covers - they look and feel identical to T-shirts. Hit him up for a price.

Nick Hyne may be from down under but he is still livin’ it up in the Northern Hemisphere. Appears as though he is still in Lake Tahoe. Who can blame him. Since January 1st Lake Tahoe has received 1,264” of fresh snow. You can quote us on that. Here Nick shares a cute puppy photo, a one-footer off a snowmobile and a Macguyver’d beer fridge which is really just a stack of snow with a compartment cut out of it. It’s simplicity doesn’t make it any less genius. Cheers.

After it got warm we decided to hit some rails. This is one of about 5 in a row that we got 'swiftly moved along' from.

So, the crew went to try their luck at the local pick -up spot. Unfortunately it was slim pickings.

I snapped this photo on my iPhone of Nick Brown as I was sprinting up for about my 50th hit at 12.30am.

Lake Tahoe is one of only 3 lakes that can tsunami. The others are in New Zealand apparently.

Jye and I played a game called 'first pop' while waiting for our ride. Jye landed this kicky first pop and earned himself a 'lemonade'. A great game this game is.
