On a perfect day you’ll find me chilling with friends, doing stupid things off side hits and having a laugh, but I’d never have a bad time when strapped in.

What is your UK home dome/slope/mountain? – The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead. I love it there – the vibes are so good and the rails just keep getting better!

What did you get up to last season? – I did a lot of dome riding, that’s where it’s at right now! I also went to Avoriaz, and had possibly the best conditions I could dream of. It was the week after the massive snow fall and it was sunny every day. I also went to Spring Break and had possibly the funnest time EVER! Just shredding with everyone and generally having a good time. I spent a lot of time filming last winter and plan to film more this winter.

Describe your riding style in ten words or less – Enthusiastic, fun and sometimes a bit, umm, experimental..

Roughly how many days a year do you get on snow? – Around 80, nowhere near as much as I would like, but school is a bit of a limit..

What’s the best trip you’ve ever been on? – That’s a hard one, I think Spring Break because that was just so much fun, but then Avoriaz was really good as well.

What was the last trick you learned? – I think it was a backside 2 on, I don’t often do backside tricks, but I’m starting to do more of them.

What was your first ever snowboard set up? – It was a Burton Custom with Burton Freestyle bindings, shout out to Chris Allso for helping me out with that one!

What are your stance width and angles – and why? – 15, -15 keeping it simple, and its what feels best for me right now.

What one piece of advice do you wish you’d been given when you bought your first board? – My first set up was actually pretty much perfect, but ‘ride before you buy’ is the main thing – and don’t just buy on graphics!

Current Set Up

Snowboard –  CAPiTA Children of the Gnar, I love this board, the flex in it is so good and its really light!

Back up/quiver board – CAPiTA Horrorscope, rad graphics by Jono Wood.

Boots – ThirtyTwo X Crab Grab lashed. Super comfy which is all that matter really… Plus they look sick!

Bindings – Union Team

Jacket – I don’t really wear a proper jacket, but I do often wear coaches jackets. Normally a ThirtyTwo Hood Rats one or the ThirtyTwo Kramer coaches jacket.

Pants – ThirtyTwo Wooderson, nice skinny fit and they keep me warm.

Goggles/sunglasses – Ashbury Crenshaws

Gloves – HOWL! Either the vintage mitt or the Keegan Mitt. They are like toasters for my hands.

Accessories – CRAB GRABS! Couldn’t be without them or my Gnarly hood to keep me warm.

What tweaks do you make to a new set up? – Blunt the edges and cover it in Crab Grabs.

Current sponsors – CAPiTA, Union, ThirtyTwo, Gnarly, Sandbox, The Snowboard Asylum, The Snow Centre
