Duncan Ewington has uploaded an aesthetically pleasing Shocklands feature to his blog: "SbA's Melbourne Shocklands comp is one of the most anticipated contests of the year. Not only by the spectators, but by all the skaters themselves, as the obstacles and format are pretty damn good! This year was no exception and the course was as "street" as you can get in an artificial environment. The range of obstacles were diverse and quirky, ranging from a kicker over a man sized rubbish bin, a rainbow rail bike rack, a kicker to up rail (which was actually part of the building), a tight wallie/hip, the ever-so-popular wheelchair ramp and a few other standard park obstacles. The lack of ramps meant for a lot of pushing in between tricks, which is a nice change as you get to see the natural styles of the skaters, as well as seeing an occasional flat land trick thrown in for good measure..." continued here.
