For the following insight into Australian/Melbourne skate history i would like to thank my friend Ben who did the research and 'located' this photograph of the John Batman memorial statue:



John Batman (1801 - 1839) was an Australian farmer and businessman who was one of the first settlers of the Melbourne.

To this day the John Batman memorial statue (at former National Mutual Plaza off Collins Street) is a Mecca for Melbourne skate culture (note the stairs and rail in background).

The statue depicts Batman performing the famous 'Colonial Drop-in' performed off the bow of the schooner 'rebecca' into the waters of port phillip bay in 1835.

That first Colonial Drop-in (aka the colon-drop) is regarded as one of the most famous moments in Australian skate history.

The colon-drop has been recreated by many celebrity skaters over the years - most notable being the 'Hoff and his efforts at Newcastle in 2007 on his modified skate-wing:

Sitting at home between jobs, posting up stuff that is guaranteed to make people have a good laugh, which in turn makes them desperate for your next installment, thus deliberately forcing them log on during business hours, when they should be busy earning their wages, .......BAD BUTCHER!

PS If the Butcher's link to the skatewing does not work try this one.

Gold Butch just GOLD!! Quick question, did the colon drop have some sort of historical influence on your own contribution to skateboarding history with your famous move "The Wrist Watch"?

silverback,

The colon-drop has no relation to either of my custom moves: the 'Wrist-watch' or the 'Beached whale exodus'.

Though i can see what your getting at.

a kid at work gave me heads up on a piss weak haunt that the slalom brothers NEED to know about.

Apparrently on the outskirts of Tamworth NSW, there is a hill.

The local kids are mesmerized by its strange powers, apparently they take their cars there, park them in the middle of the hill, and miraculously when they disengage the handbrake the car appears to roll UP HILL!!

Is it a strange optical illusion? some invisible magnetic force? a glitch in gravity?

I can see it now...the worlds first backwards, uphill slalom contest.

Recently renovated find!

The "Mali" Bowl - Parkville (invitation only, behind big fence and security)

Small dish like bowl, rough finished concrete coping, flat bottom, about 1 foot of transition, and plenty of "fun" rocks to grind, or drop in from.

Word of warning on the local crew:
Don't lend em your board unless you want the "pop" completely removed, oh and they only speak Thai.

Popped in today. Well worthy of the pissweak title. No slope, transitions a la springvale, lumpy & max height about 18inches. Nice park & playground for the family.
