Just over two weeks ago saw the circus that is Crankworx once again head down-under to the township of Rotorua. With it came the usual corporate glamour and industry focus that has grown to dominate what content people see from the event.
Insert us; Highlow. We decided we wanted to make a film that showcased what Crankworx is really about for your average rider. Hanging out whips with your buddies and putting spokes loose in your back wheel. Drawing inspiration from the early 2000s skate-punk culture dominated by Jackass, Blink 182 and Moto XXX, we ended up with 15 minutes of the boys getting rowdy and a minging soundtrack to boot.Photos by Sydney Wainwright.

Friday night's whip off was a highlight. What more needs to be said?
