Hudson Goodchild – Scooter

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.

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.
How did you get into riding? – I started racing BMX when I was 5 and raced until I was 10 when I stopped. In 2013 I got a Fit BF and started to ride at the skatepark
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.
