Nath how's it feel being across the water?
good man just had a brutal winter here so didn't really get to ride much, but i'm looking forward to a good summer riding here. Got some amazing spots and a rad bowl to ride which is 5 mins away from my house,Canada is a great place to live if you can deal with winter.
you've been riding a hell of a long time and have seen alot of people come and go in the Hull scene, is that weird?
Not really, people move on to do different things in life. People stop riding but i don't think BMX ever really leaves them, They're around the scene one way or another.
what's the yorkshire tea situation out there?
hahahaha my nana sent me a few boxes out,but we found a spot that sells it, so we're all stocked up now!
Your riding style is definitely your own,...who were your main influences growing up?
Lots of dudes, the big ones got to be Tom Blyth, we started riding together and we both still ride now. I think watching props and all the dudes on road fools was a big one for me. Martin Towler was another guy,and all the other Hull dudes who came up in the scene were all rad!
What's pat on with?
ahahahaha He thinks he's the wolf of wall street, proper del boy now!. Used car salesman that wears $2000 suit which costs more than the cars he sells.Pat's good though, doing well for himself.
Coaster still on or cassette?
Nah coaster went about a year ago, i had a really good time on the coaster but i'm over it. Cassette feels so much more solid.
If you started riding right now instead of back in the 90's you think you'd still dig it?
Ermmm,.. it's hard to say, it's not what it was.Back when i started riding style was a big thing but that seems to have gone out the window. If you could do all the tricks but it looked like crap no-one cared.But it's the other way around now, If you have all the tricks today with no style the kids love it. Style will always win in my opinion.
How's your ankle? you injury free right now?
Had all that time off over winter so it feels mint right now, time to see what it's willing to take before it blows up!
Cheers for your time nath, glad alls good man!
The shops always been a massive part of the scene in Hull and it should stay like that, Support your local bike shop kids! Thanks.
