The Trials of the South Coast Crusade – the second event on the 2013 IBA World Tour – ran to completion in three foot wedging peaks at Mystics beach, Minnamurra today.

Lachlan Cramsie was unstoppable, defeating the field with meticulous precision and earning himself valuable IBA Australasia Pro Tour points as he enters the Main Event along with fellow trialists Chase O’Leary (second), George Humphries (third) and Jake Stone (fourth).

Lachie joins Ryan Hardy, Damian King and Nick Ormerod in the Main Event and will face off against Jared Houston, Andrew Lester and Hardy in Heat 6 of Round 1. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter for live updates and results when the event gets underway.

10 Years Of Parkway

blog_0393

Parkway Drive are set to commemorate 10 years of incredible achievements with a special anniversary tour of Australia this September.

Turning 10 is yet another milestone in the career of the quintet, who’ve set benchmark after benchmark since playing their first show at Byron Bay Youth Activity Centre back in 2003.

Parkway’s 10 year anniversary tour is planned as a celebration for both the band and their fanbase. Set to be held in some of the most intimate venues the band has played in many years, the setlists will be comprised of material spanning their entire back catalogue, including some older fan favourites that will be dusted off especially for the occasion.

“We can’t believe we lasted 10 years!” said vocalist Winston McCall. “We’re going to be taking it back to the Parkway of old. Classic venues, classic jams. We’ve been going over our releases and have around 30 songs from all eras ready to be dusted off. No frills, just Parkway the way it always has been; fast, heavy and fun.”

Tickets on sale Friday April 19, click here for more information.
