Favourite Quotes: “Don’t wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect” and “If it was easy everyone would be able to do it"
Advice: The best advice I have been told are
1. Focus on your own plan, don’t worry about people who watch and compete with you and your plan, as they are not following their own.
2. Take time to learn properly, listen and accept good advice, and say thank-you. 3. Cheer for others as you would like them to cheer for you.
When not riding: I like going to my brothers wakeboarding, being with friends & family, EATING, hanging out with all my pets.
Most known for: Being clumsy, never staying clean, wearing odd socks.
