Why Skateboarding? (What got u started)
I used to have a skateboard/scooter hybrid thing when I was kid called a switchboard. It was essentially a skateboard that had handle bars that you could flip up to make it into a scooter and it weighed a tonne. I soon realised that there was no chance I was going to learn how to kickflip on this contraption so I got an old setup off one of my mums friends and the rest is history.

Favourite video or part?
Grant Taylor’s welcome to antihero part is the best part ever made.

Best style?
Cardiel.

All time favourite trainers (sneakers)?
eS access.

Everyone around me that I love.

Downtime (not skating)?
Going on adventures in my camper van with my husky Loki, he’s a real G.

Why Skateboarding? (What got u started)
I came home from school one day and my grandad had just bought me a board, never had any inclination to start skating apart from that so I'm forever grateful.

Favourite video or part?
Favourite part would have to be PJ Ladd wonderful horrible life, good tune and great style. Also can't go wrong with a lil paddy lynn switch tre.

Best style?
Favourite style would probably be Jahmir Brown. Only recently heard of him but he's got an amazing switch back five O, which is one of the most beautiful tricks in my opinion. Definitely one to look out for.

All time favourite trainers (sneakers)?
Favourite trainers at the minute would to be the DC Reserve x John Shannahan Lynx, big fan of chunky shoes! They feel super comfy and look amazing, would definitely recommend. 

What inspires you?
It always inspires me to see people from Ireland getting their footage out there and getting the credit they deserve, because there are so many great rippers from Ireland and it's about time people see that. 

Downtime (not skating)?
When I'm not skating I enjoy spending time with my friends and also I enjoy painting, drawing and finding other ways to express my creativity. I haven't had much down time recently because I'm studying maths and physics this year!

Shout outs
Biggest shout out to my mum and dad because they have always supported me. Then shout out to all the main homies, Drew Strap, Dan Cox, Ben, Conal, Caspo, Cheese String and all the other legends I spend my time with.

Why Skateboarding? (What got u started)
I started skating when I was like 8 or 9 for maybe 4 or 5 months then stopped and picked it back when I was 13 because a friend of mine in school skated also.

Favourite video or part?
Anything that tom knox is in but his most recent Atlantic drift part is the best.

Best style?
Favourite style right now for me is Chris Colbourn.

All time favourite trainers (sneakers)?
eS schemes were always a nice one to look at for me but if those down count as sneakers then I have no favourite I suppose.

What inspires you?
Seeing all the homies skating on the session gets me HYPED.

Downtime (not skating)?
Downtime banters is usually drawing.

Shout outs
SHOUT OUT JBL MASSIVE AND RHE KALIMBA GANG ONE HUNDRED.
