Summary Info
2015 IDF World Champion Junior Downhill Skateboard. I finished 11th overall in men's open in 2015, taking a close 2nd at Maryhill, but I captured my first open men's class win at Santa Gnarbara and placed 2nd at Britannia that year in non IDF races. 2016 is the first year I will compete exclusively in men's open. I love the freedom I feel while skating, and I get a rush out of the speed involved. Setting my lines and reading the course is challenging, as is playing out positional tactics on the course with some of the worlds best. The network of international friends, the camaraderie and support, despite fierce competition is amazing. I skate pretty much every day, even in the rain, on my local hills in Vancouver, BC.
