How long have you been riding?
I have been mucking about on my bike for the last 7 years on and off. But I grew up racing bmx before destroying my knee put an end to riding for a few
Biggest influences in BMX?
Where are you living at the moment?
As of June this year I made the return to farming in North Waikato and I'm loving it! I get to work with animals, and rip around on bikes and other machinery. What's
not to like? It's also pretty cool to work in a job that is essentially limitless in ways of progression and approach, just like bmx.
What does a regular session usually consist of?
These days a regular session at the local park involves playing music on my portable speaker, catching up with mates and riding as fast as I can, trying to open up
new lines. Every now and then I try land some new tricks and I'll probably go back to that mentality when the brakes go back on and Tailwhips get less sketchy.
Top 3 places you’ve ridden over the years?
Manukau skatepark, not necessarily for the park itself but the scene there when I started riding again was pretty rad. Massive thanks to all those guys for being so
cool. Chris Beverlands house was my favourite place in the world for a few years, just a decent sized roll in into some sweet jumps. His first jump has a decent kick to it. The old Waiuku bmx
track was probably the raddest place I ever rode. In the early 00's there were so many pros there to look up to and the track itself was sick!
Tell us something about your local scene?
Local scene is ok, handful of good dudes, mainly vaginas on scooters! ( Scooter Kids )
Waikato draught, closely followed by double brown. Very closely. Special mentions to rum, coffee, and good old water.
Anything that involves doing the least dishes! As bad as it is for me, I love a hearty lasagne packed full of fungus haha!
Bands/musicians you are into?
Pegs yes or no?
Yes pegs are mean. I have trouble running them as I put them on the left and they loosen my front wheel constantly. Love sending an icepick down a rail when I'm
feeling ballsy though.
My mum for driving me to all those races and buying me great bikes when I was a kid and still letting me ride
after all the crazy accidents. Lawrence and Brad Day, father and son combo, letting me dig in the front paddock and building pretty much whatever I want. Daniel Puha and Ryan Dando for hanging
out and looking after me while I was tripping down south, now looking to make that trip as often as possible. Chris Beverland! Ethan Macintosh for being a good mate and a sharp rider, Jon Riddle,
Brad Webb and Lewis Jones. Best sessions at my jumps have involved those dudes. Lewis is crazy! My son Ronnie, a constant reminder to keep it on two wheels and try not to cop anymore head
injuries haha. Of course I have to mention fungusbikeco, been sending me little care packages and spinning yarns for a while now and I couldn't be happier to be involved with great New Zealanders
like Garf and Knoxxy riding for a progressive company that isn't all about commercial success and actually gives a shit about the core riders. Sorry if that's a bit long, I really appreciate all
my friends for keeping the stoke alive.
