If you saw this photo of Pass~Port Pro Callum Paul but still don’t think it was a make, sit tight for the curtains in the latest video edit from Vans VZ/AUS. “The world famous bubbler boy Callum Paul, Jack “Am I still on the team?” Kirk and the emotional artist that is Jimmy “Six Balls” Roche made the Trans-Tasman journey. From New Zealand we had East meets West Jack Fagan who was flown in from Wellington, and then the local boys Elijah Robertson, Nico, Chase Collins and everyone’s favourite, Mikey Bancroft.” Filmed by Haimona Ngata and Bill Bycroft, edited by Bill Bycroft. We think there was even a cameo by Broadcast Wheels rider and New Zealand wanderer Gareth Stehr.
