During set up for the comp these two dogs were going absolutely ballistic. They were not a part of our wolf pack either. One was a three legged mini Jack Russell, the other was a pointer / cocker spaniel crossed with a springbok. Cuzz was on the blower making sure that the Clifton Hill plaza was free of debris. The frequency that it was omitting sent the two dogs nuts, they lost their owner who was perpetually yelling out their names: “Matty”… “Hooker”… “Matty”. Wait isn’t that the name of our filmer? Matty Hooker? Yep: weird! The springbok dog was sprinting the length of the skate park desperately looking for its owner, and the three-legged guy was doing his best to run. Eventually Cuzz stopped making a racket and they dogs were reunited with their owner. The last we saw of the springbok dog was the most epic’ly popped dog shifty off into the bush. A short while later contestants and fans began rocking up for the Victorian qualifier of the 2012 Nike SbA Am Series. The guest judges were Magistrate Mike Martin and Judge Jeremy Corea. The guest MC was Anthony Mapstone who also led the charge with the Fast Times BBQ action. Nick Boserio was guest chef and Lewis Marnell took care of the switch ledge department. Aside from a little wind towards the end of the session the sun shone and conditions were perfectly shred-worthy.
