When someone invites you on an all-expenses-paid, 10-day trip around Australia, you shoot first and ask questions later.
Burton team riders Max Zebe, Ethan Deiss, and Jye Kearney did exactly that, checking all the boxes off the quintessential Aussie road trip in the name of scoring footage. Unlike the fuzzy memories and even fuzzier iPhone photos of our own road trips across this great land, they had GoPro along to get the whole thing on film, and for that we are glad. The trio hit Mt Buller, Thredbo and Falls Creek to reap the benefits of fresh pow and the coldest temps Australia can muster, headed to a wintery Bells Beach in search of the southern state’s infamous swell, drank their way through the new Burton x Pirate Life Frontside Ale at a launch party, and stopped in at some skateparks to knock kids off scooters along the way. Just kidding. Hit play on Burton and GoPro’s brand new film above—and don’t forget you saw it here first—then go round up a few buddies and hit the road.
