Bio

Caerphilly born and raised, Emily Hicks has been repping our Cardiff Store team since 2020. Skating bodge-job Welsh council ramps from the age of 12 might be enough to deter the weaker willed, but prefabricated metal monstrosities beware - Emily takes 'em in her stride!

IF YOU COULD STEAL A TRICK FROM ANOTHER RIDER, WHO AND WHAT WOULD IT BE?

 Marce’s kickflips, they’re perfect!

IF YOU HAD A PRO GRAPHIC, WHAT WOULD BE ON IT?

 I’d just love to draw up a flash sheet of random doodles on a skateboard. That’d be my pro deck. I’d request to design it myself too, for sure.
 

 BEST EVER SKATE MISSION?

 Drove around Bristol searching for the down curb above the Marriott Hotel and board slid the whole thing. Super fun and scary all at the same time.

SOMEONE TO LOOK OUT FOR?

Jake Tucker is a sick skater - can never understand why he’s not sponsored yet!
