We caught up with him to ask a few questions...
How long have you been skating and BMXing?
I started BMXing when I was 3, so 7 years. I started skating more regularly when we moved to Braunton when I was 6.What or who first got you into skateboarding/BMXing?
My DadWhere’s your favourite place to ride?
I love riding at all the local skateparks; Rock Park, Ilfracombe, Appledore, Woolacombe and indoors at Mount Hawke in Cornwall. I am really lucky to be able to ride a privately-owned bowl - it’s an amazing place and the owner really helps me with my skating which is cool.
What’s your favourite trick?
I don’t really have a favourite trick, but I love riding bowls, and getting lots of air!
For skating, I’m working on late grab airs, and I’m practicing 720 aerials on my bmx.
What do you prefer out of skating and BMX?
I love both of them equally, at different times depending on where I am riding.
How do you feel about being part of the Saltrock family?
I’m stoked! I’m a huge fan of Andrew Cotton who is also an Ambassador for Saltrock. I hope we can skate or surf together one time - but only small waves!
Yes, the Ilfracombe Skate Jam in October half term.
What trick has taken you the longest to learn so far?
In BMXing, the 360 aerial took a long time to learn, and lots of falls!
How did you enjoy our photoshoot at the bowl in Exmoor?
I loved it. Being filmed and photographed at the place I love riding was really fun, and I was given cool clothes to wear.
