WHY I SKATEBOARD

I skate because it is the greatest feeling when you are cruising down the road or landing tricks for the 1st time, it has also taught me to never give up on reaching my goals.

MY FAVOURITE TRICKS

Kickflips and Hardflips all day!!

ADVISE TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE JUST STARTED SKATEBOARDING

I would say learn how to stop and step away from the skateboard properly before you really start going for it, so when a trick does not go your way you will not hurt yourself.
Learning how to escape from falling has saved me so many times from some bails that could of been a lot worse.

MY FAVOURITE TEACHING STORY

I had a lesson where all the children wanted to do was talk about Minecraft and learn to skate down hills safely. So that is exactly what we did for 2 hours.
Happy parents, happy children, I was happy they learnt to skateboard safely, it was a good day for everyone.
