Who appeared in our first ever print ad?
Can’t remember, I know I have the option of peeking on the site but that would be pretending…
When did you first hear about/notice United?
06/07 Was it back then?, I dunno, time flies so fast, I know our ‘local pro’ back home was Max Vincent and he was on Federal and still is, so I must of first heard of it when rumours started flying about the split. one thing I do remember is watching Theo Simpson’s ‘Don’t Matter’ part over and over after getting the free DVD in Ride UK.
What year did you start riding?
1997-1999. Took me about 2 years to decide to ditch the skateboard!
What first got you into riding?
My Dad always was a bike freak and would bring me on these long treks on bike paths, I hated it sooo much, but I guess that kinda gave me a base on being a ‘bike person’. I always had bikes and jumped them with friends. I guess my Mom buying me a brand new Mongoose when we visited Vancouver in 1997 is what got me into it. When I got back home I would use it to commute to the skatepark everyday. Then all my friends started getting bikes too so we eventually all jumped ship and started a bike gang!. Hahahaha.
