Date of birth – August 1996.
Current Sponsors – Freestyle Now
Resides – Perth
Freestyle Now squad member since – January 2013
Specialty – Scooters
Started riding – 2010
Do you like riding in show and competitions? – I don’t mind competitions but I preferably rather making videos or just riding for the fun of it! I’m not a competitive guy!
How did you get into scootering? – My dad lives in a small country town, the only thing there that is interesting really is the skatepark so everything just unraveled from there
What was your first scooter? – My first scooter was a Madd Gear Team Edition that I bought for $110 from Kmart for my 14th birthday!
Who has influenced you the most in riding? – My main influences would have to Thomas Atkins and Jordan Caswell along with Matty Ceravolo and Billy Watts… They pushed me with my riding when we used to go out days on end trying to film or just learn new tricks! I have a lot of friends at the skatepark that are too many to name, but those boys definitely did a lot for me over the years! Although I also had to influence myself a lot with riding as there was many days where I didn’t have anyone to ride with so I needed to motivate myself to do it on my own!
What can you remember most about your first competition or demo? – Well my first demo was with Freestyle Now in 2012 at Morawa on the FN jump box and I definitely had the first time jitters, but I tried to do my best and make the most of the opportunity and it must of been okay as I have been heavily involved with Freestyle Now since
Main type of riding? – Park! Always; I’ll get on some ledges and rails every now and again but always love just speeding around the skatepark
Favourite place to ride? – Belmont- it’s the local so no place better! Other than that I love riding Fremantle Plaza as well as the old park ‘Captain Munchies’ as they both have very different options of riding which is a good change
What has been your worst injury? – Probably smashing my face twice in the space of about 3 weeks…. Landed on my chin the first time and needed 5 needles of anesthetic in my face and 7 stitches! Got those stitches removed a week later, then 3 days after that I landed on my face again and pretty much knocked myself out and gave myself a fractured cheek bone and another 6 stitches! Fun times, always wear a helmet.

Date of Birth – Seat post height is usually a pretty good indicator of age and I have 3 inches, you do the math.

Freestyle Now squad member since – August 2016
Specialty – Bringing the X back to BMX
Started riding – Rode a bike right out me mums oven 3 months undercooked, still my riskiest manoeuvre.
Do you like riding in shows or competitions – Every time I ride it’s a show but I do enjoy the odd game of horse with da boiz, that’s about as competitive as bmx gets for me. Unless I’m racing of course… wanna see my trophy?
How did you get into riding? – I’ve been bump jumping tree roots since i can remember.
What was your first bike? Had all sorts but i remember getting a Redline single X with the big hollow frame that sounded like a milo tin when you hit it. Beauty
Who has influenced you the most in riding? – The people I ride with the most… bust, black mike, all the other oicnts.. Probably why I still suck at bmx.
What can you remember most about your first competition or demo? – I remember wondering how on earth the two weirdo MCs running the show managed to yell consistently for 5 hours straight, now I’m one of those loud weirdoes and I still don’t understand
Main type of riding – Absolutely anything and everything… except flatland (I don’t like riding on my own LOLOLOLOL)
Favorite place to ride – ooh…. Manning fly out, Kent St brick ledges, Chittering dirt jumps, Cockburn bmx track, literally everywhere in America. Go travel the world with your bike it is the only reason we were put on this earth.
What has been your worst injury? One time I was racing my motocross bike in a 2 day bush race and I was in heavy dust at the end of day two just about to pass for the lead and bam! I hit a tree root in top gear and flew over the bars for 40 metres, landed on my head and knocked myself out cold but that doesn’t count because I was wearing a helmet. Remember if you haven’t filmed it, if you were wearing a helmet, if you landed in grass, or your hat didn’t fall off mid-run, IT DOESN’T COUNT.

Do you like riding in shows or competitions – I like to ride shows more just for the fact there more chilled and you get to have fun and push your mates.

What was your first bike? – My first bike was a Redline 12’ can’t remember the model.
Who has influenced you the most in riding? – One of the people I looked up to the most was Kyle Baldock and any of the local riders, there was a kid down the street I lived on who helped me a lot when I first started.
What can you remember most about your first competition or demo? – The first comp I competed in was at my local Willetton on my 20’ Fit BMX, the main part I remember is my sweaty hands having no grip on the grips and the one and only trick I could do was a 180. I still had an awesome time and that’s where it really all started for my park riding.
Main type of riding – BMX skatepark or ramps
Favorite place to ride – My favourite place to ride would have to be Willetton due to the fact that I have grown up there and rode that park from day one.

Current sponsors – Freestyle Now
Resides – Perth
Freestyle Now squad member since – Recruits August 2017 – Reserves December 2018
Specialty – Scooters, Awesome coach, Manuals
Started riding – 2009
Do you like riding in shows or competitions – Yes, not so much for competition but as a means for showing what I can do in a short consistent run.
How did you get into riding? – I started riding through riding my scooter to school and back and soon after I took it to the skatepark and saw that I could do a lot more with it.
What was your first scooter? – Well I had a lot of foldables before I had my first ‘trick’ scooter, so excluding my razor from back in the day my first pro scooter was the MGP pro 2009.
Who has influenced you the most in riding? – That’s a hard question! Ryan Williams was the very first scooter rider I watched so I’d say he was my biggest influence as that’s how I even found out you could do tricks on scooters. Logan Fuller, Kai Saunders, and Brandon James are riders who also inspire me a lot!

Main type of riding – Skatepark, Technical

What has been your worst injury? I’ve had some pretty painful ligament rips but I got to admit when I broke my big toe was probably the worse because I had a national competition a week after and I still rode to my fullest, the bone ended up dislodging in my toe a day before the comp and it was a pretty strange feeling!.
