The boardroom bmx and skate


Bio and background






United bike co and The Boardroom

How did you get into riding in the first place

The skatepark in greystones opened its doors and a few of the local kilcoole heads got into it. Tagged along one of the days, had a pedal about n a good laugh. Decided to get a shitty diamondback for Christmas one year and been at it since

Describe your current bike set up

United Mothership frame with a crazy paint job, bogey wheel set with a lack of spokes(his own fault), United Rigal bars, éclat forks and a load of other United bits n bobs !

Hows juggling college, work and riding going

Bit of a struggle at the moment with living away from home, Maynooth's a small town with not much to ride in it (at least not on your bike that is) ! There's a few spots on campus but security can be pricks. Blanch skateparks a shortish journey on the train and gettin a Subrosa Fam rail soon so I'll be able to stay on the bike a bit during the week. Work on a Sunday is always a pain In the ass cos that's when everyone else is off but gotta pay them bills!

You ditched your freecoaster recently, what happened

Well made a mess of my freecoaster when I was away in malaga so when I got back I had no choice but to throw on my old cassette. Don't think I'll go back to a freecoaster any time soon, bike feels much nicer at the moment !

Why do you keep landing on your face

I keep asking myself the same question.... Think it's a mixture of drunken incidents with reg and throwing myself at rails without thinking.


Top 5 spots to ride
