Recently over the Easter break a few of the Posse boys jumped in a van and ventured on a little road trip. The general plan was to head inland to Toowoomba then head out up and towards the coast.

With a van packed full of camping equipment, Skateboards, and good vibes, the boys were getting excited for what lay ahead!

We got into Toowoomba pretty late on Thursday night, only to find the biggest event on the Toowoomba yearly calender in full swing. There was some mini festival going on complete with carnival rides, music and a whole field full of tents and campers. We had a little drive around to scope out some skate spots and decided to find somewhere to post up for the night.

We managed to find a sweet little spot on top on a hill over looking the city lights of Toowoomba and set up camp.A few drinks were had and we all settled in for the first night.

The next day we explored and hit a few spots around Toowoomba, Pedro was unable to stay on the whole trip but he managed to make a cameo apperace in Toowoomba. We met up with Pedro in the morning with Ben James and his homie Dennis in tow who were up from Sydney. We managed to hit a few fun spots, a water channel, some outledges, and a kicker over some stairs were all hit.

The last spot of the day was the infamous water towers gap. We werne’t exatcly sure of the location so we headed down to the park where we got some directions from some friendly locals.

We rocked out there and the boys jumped up and starting jumping over the gap. The session ended rather abruptly after witnessing one of the most gnarliest slams I have ever witnessed with my own 2 eyes…….

All I will say though, is that Ben James is as tough as nails. Seriously.

To be continued next week…….
