Description: Introducing new CLEAR color-ways for the BANTAM, as well as the latest addition to GLOBE'S cruiser board line up – THE BLAZERS. These may look like the boards of yesteryear, but they definitely are not. With a 30-day guarantee on all boards and a lifetime guarantee on trucks, GLOBE'S cruiser range is not messing around. The BANTAM is stiffer, the trucks are wider and the components last longer than anything in the market. These little beasts have been tested on the streets, backyard pools and any ramps we come across. GLOBE cruisers are the real deal, so go out to your local skate or surf shop and pick one up. globe.tv/bantam

Meet Bryan Shaw.
Originally hailing from the East Coast of the USA, Bryan has now made Queenstown home for himself, his kiwi wife Freya and their cheeky son Zaryd.
Bryan has been a man of the shred for a number of years now and possesses a plethora of talents from skating and snowboarding to welding and porridge making.
Heck, according to Freya, the man even makes a world class cup of tea! He always puts a biscuit on the side apparently (great tea etiquette).
Have a peep at a Day in the Life of Bryan and meet the man who can back up the few words he divulges.
