WHY I SKATEBOARD

I have been skateboarding for so long now I do not know who I would be without it. Progressing is a key motivator for me; I still surprise myself and do things I thought would never be possible when I first started. I never want to leave that.

MY FAVOURITE TRICKS

Picking a favourite trick is like a parent picking their favourite child it can not be done, I love them all equally.

ADVISE TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE JUST STARTED SKATEBOARDING

Do not be afraid to fail, if you fall over nine times and get up ten you are still on the way to success. Everybody started at the bottom, hard work and effort gets you going.

MY FAVOURITE TEACHING STORY

It is not so much a story, but my favourite part in teaching skateboarding is watching peoples faces light up after they have done something they were scared to do before. I know that feeling, it is great to see it in the faces of others.
