1) Hey man, tell us all how you started in this game? What made you start riding?

Well back in the day I skated hardcode for a few years. Then I lost my board so I just picked up a bike… still have that mad skater style, lol.

2) What was your first ride? And how does it compare to your current set-up?

 I had the FRESHEST all chrome GT Performer! Ha ha, it had a 44 tooth sprocket, it was built for speed but twice as heavy. Back then I did a lot of flatland, so I had front brakes and 4 pegs, the bike was so pimp, ha ha. Nowadays I’m riding light but strong parts –  Like my 25 tooth so I can just cruise! Oh, and now I’m riding three pegs, but I only just put the third peg on to learn new tricks!


3) How would you describe your style of riding to a complete outsider?

Something like this: “A creative, innovative, well-polished and smooth rider.”, or maybe; “Goes against the grain with such swagger, it makes for a fun and energized show!”, Ha ha…

4) What was the last trick you learnt?

Tooth-pick hangover grind up rails… All will be seen in my next edit, ha ha!

5) Best pick-up line?

 Best pick up line, “Girl: so, do you drive? Guy: Na babe, but I do have a bike! Girl:Thats so cool!… I like riding on the back. Guy: Well whats Ur number? I’ll take u for a ride sometime… I’ll even let you sit up front haha ” and walks away with the phone number…

10) What tricks are you planning on dialling in next?

 Well, Now that I’ve got tooth hangers up rails… I was wondering if a tooth hanger up a rail to wip was possible. Hmmm… One day. As for now, I just like trying new things and having that feeling of laughing as I ride away from something I thought up in my head lol BEST feeling.
