In the first of my What's up? series, I filmed a breezy afternoon's skating with old bud Benny V. We have skated together for many years now and seem to do quite similar tricks (though Ben is much better than me). Back in Brisbane, we used to head out to suburban skate competitions most weekends - Ben would take first place every time, me usually second. Always the bridesmaid. Ben has his own skate distribution company called Project and was down here for a day or so selling some thugged out DGK clothing. We had a great time catching up and hanging out at the Gasometer with Liege, Andy and co. Next time I see Ben, he'll be a dad! That may call for a follow up episode. I hope I'll start asking more questions and stuff in the future, but I think I get away with it here, because Ben and I like to communicate with skating.
