Werris Creek near Tamworth New South Wales   How old were you when you first started skating? 19 or 20… I think.   Are there many other skaters in your area? How do you connect with other skaters and arrange to meetup? I guess you could say we have some top quality skaters here on the Sunshine Coast and also in Brisbane and Gold Coast close by. We usually connect via Facebook, whether it be a group message, Facebook forums/groups or spamming phones, sometimes ASRA.   Who are your favourite people to skate with? People that are on that level, as in… out to have fun, know their limitations and skate safe, want to improve their skills, have a few laughs, you know… stoke machines.   What's your favourite place to skate? Ummmm…… at the moment its Magpie :D   What style of skating did you start out with? (if not downhill) When did you move to downhill? I started as a Bomber with the Monkypig Crew and Daddow.   Do you race? What's your top 3 dream Australian hills you'd like to see a sanctioned event at? I’d like to say I still race haha… Hmmmm top 3…. Mt Panorama Mt Kiera Mt Stuart   Who do you ride for? TSG Supersports, MC, My Life on Board, I’m a friend of Landyachtz Australia; It’s an amateurs flow development program. So stoked to be a part of it :D   Preferred Trucks? Lanyachtz Precisions. But since I have less movement in my back foot Kodiaks would be good to try :D   Favourite wheels for gripping/racing? Blue or white Biggie Hawgs… Dawg Hawgs are on the money for people my size… really just depends on hill   Favourite wheels for sliding/freeride? At the moment getting back on my board Landy 70mm Blue Mini Zombies and 63mm micro monsters are my jam. They’re skidalicous!   What disciplines do you practice?
  • I was all about getting down a hill fast… but now that I’ve had time off… Id like to explore more… mainly freeride, even though its daunting.
  • Hip Hop Dancing at Madd Dance House when I have time
  • Trying to learn patience and meditation… its sort of working haha
  Top memorable skate moment of yours? The day I felt the wind passing through me with the sun shining, witnessing an epic scenery, skating within my limitations and with an epic crew in a relatively safe environment. That’s the Jaydus Juice right there.   Who is your favourite skater? What skater inspires you the most and why? Is it bad to say I don’t really have one… I guess the skaters that inspire me the most are the ones that round up the crew and get them on a hill to hang out and jam! You know who you are :D   What was the board you first started skating on? I really can’t remember but the Daddow Pigasus was pretty much the first board I skated on.   What was your worst bail? I have 2: Getting hit at 80kms head on by Magga at Newtons Nations 2012 Spiral fracturing my fibula, snapping it in 2 and ripping most lateral ligaments in my ankle during the step off on the last corner at Drifters   Words to the wise… skate within your limitations and as you get stronger, the rest will follow.
