Where do you ride?
My home park is Bali Wake Park but I have ridden at other cables in Australia and Thailand.
What’s your favorite food?
I like most food but my favorite would probably be Thai food.
How did you get started wakeboarding?
I got started by hearing about a friend of mine going to Bali Wake Park and really liking it so I really wanted to go, I ended up going a week or two later and loving it and I have been riding ever since.
Do you do any other sports?
I like to trampoline and skate a bit, but I mostly wakeboard.
What do you like the most about wakeboarding?
For me, the best thing about wakeboarding is learning new tricks with my friends and having a really good time.
What do you dislike?
I really don’t like front and back edges.
Who is the best rider?
I think the best rider at the moment is Daniel Grant.
2nd and 3rd?
2nd would probably Aaron Gunn and 3rd would be Busty Dunn.
Your favorite rider?
My favorite rider is Guenther Oka because I love his style on kickers and rails.
Name a trick you would like to do one day?
A trick I would like to do one day is a double half cab roll.
Which do you prefer, Rails or kickers?
I probably prefer kicker because I really like doing flips on a wakeboard and on a trampoline, I also like being in the air and going high.
Tell us a bit about your home spot?
Bali Wake Park is a nice place to wakeboard because it is good weather all year round (apart from sometimes in wet season) the crew there is really nice and I love riding there. Its going to be even better in a few months when the new Unit features arrive.
