DDU Episode 3!

Diaries Downunder Episode 3 is here, the last for the 2016 season. It’s been a great winter being part of the crew filming with Heath Patterson and editing each episode. Nick Hyne has done a fantastic job producing the 9th series in a row, which is quite the accomplishment.

He has also been the main talent for each of those years and continues to throw down each and every time. There are few people in the world that are as committed and passionate as he is about snowboarding and putting out the best product possible. Enjoy the episode below and head over to Diaries Downunder to watch all of the episodes from over the years.


Jye Kearney (and the mega storm) hits Canterbury, New Zealand!

Australian professional snowboarder Jye Kearney is back in New Zealand! This time he gets thrown into an adventure that bucks him from the norm of his usual routine. From Christchurch Airport, the crew make their way to Mount Hutt, Canterbury’s largest resort for some mind boggling spring park wizardry. The atmosphere changes rapidly however when the biggest storm of the year hits and blankets the whole Canterbury region with fresh snow. This leads the crew to Mount Olympus, where Jye recounts his tale of riding a ‘nutcracker’ rope tow.

Needless to say, Jye is once again smiling from ear to ear as the crew build some interesting features and get creative in arguably one of the most beautiful places to snowboard downunder. Spring rules!
