About

FAVOURITE SPOT : I just like skating new stuff and new places so I can’t say I really have one.

FAVOURITE SHOE : DC Wes Kremer 2

FAVOURITE BOARD GRAPHIC : Real ‘The hanging klansman’, graphic is powerful

BEST PLACE YOU’VE VISITED THROUGH SKATEBOARDING : Thailand, kab

SKATER WITH THE BEST STYLE : A hybrid of Ishod, Mark Appleyard, Shane Cross, Luan, Dennis Busenitz, Wes Kremer and Dennis Durant.

FAVOURITE SKATE VIDEO : Any video featuring the above… Flip Sorry, Sight unseen, In Bloom. All the old thrashers and all the old Rodney Mullen vs daewong song and of course just all the new videos too, I love seeing how skateboarding is evolving in different directions and becoming more diverse all the time.

FAVOURITE BANDS / MUSICIANS : Truth is, if it ain’t real I don’t feel it, if it don’t hit spirit, I don’t get near it… Also my girlfriend Cara Elise is in a band called ‘Baby queens’, it’s for the most part a female band and the drummer Leroy, based out of Cardiff, they’re some really inspirational people who are all friends who get together and make some really beautiful music. They are blowing up right now go check them out!

FAVOURITE TV SHOWS : I can’t say I have ever really watched TV, but if I had to pick, it’d be Sun, sex and suspicious parents.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN NOT SKATING : Swimming and traveling.

DEFINITIVE MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE SO FAR : Being born is a pretty definitive moment of a persons life. Apart from actually dying, it’s a tough one to beat.
