Nollie Flip - Sam Brandstatter Last night in Auckland.
Last Weekend was the Bowlarama Pro Contest in Wellington NZ. The windy city gave us an amazing day with some red faces to be seen that afternoon. Sergie Ventura (legend) hosted things so well, taking time to enter the masters in between getting the crowd wild. Winner at the end of the day - 18 yr old Pedro Barros with some wafty airs, casual kickflip indies and the 540 hammer. Such a good vibe, the inspiration NZ needs. Cheers Wellington.

My first skate shot back from London, October 2013 with @stillwill07 - wallride at the bottle-o #richdoran_skate
This is my first Hypersync test shot in October 2013. Shooting at 1/800th of a second this allowed me to open up to f/3.5 to bring more focus to the rider. Shot using Nikon D600 with 70-200 2.8 at 120mm.
Two Quadra Ranger Hybrids with one SB-910 fired using Pocketwizard flex’ and mini.
Willy G - backside flip out of bowl to snake run - Tole Street, Auckland
I have to give a big thank you to Nikon NZ for my new D610. Following some issues with my D600 they kindly replaced it with the newer model. This is my first test with Hypersync capabilities on this body. I can confidently say it performs better with the new shutter, creating more even light at high shutter speeds. The sensor is brilliant with huge detail even at 200% crop.
Nikon D610 - 1/1000 @ f/10 using Pocketwizard FlexTT5 and Pocketwizard miniTT1 to fire two Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Hybrids with S heads.
