Who’s the new kid?
CM: So you’re from Darwin? Is there much of a riding scene there?
LM: I’m actually from a remote town called Katherine, 300kms South of Darwin. Growing up there was a few older riders but over the past couple years there was only really myself and my mate Braiden.
CM: Why did you move to Queensland?
LM: After 10 years in Katherine, Mum and Dad decided it was time for a change.
CM: We found you because you were tagging Premium a bit, that’s a good way to get our attention. What pumped you up about Premium brand?
LM: I’ve been a fan of premium since back when Garrett Reynolds was on the team. I’ve also been riding the CK frame since the first month it was out and am loving everything about it.
CM: Your brother is becoming quite a good film maker. Is it handy having him around?
LM: Yeah its so good, filming with James is so stress free because he is so patient when it comes to filming and I’m never worried about how it is going to look as he always seems to make it look fresh. Also I would rather it just be me and James when I want to film something big or scary because I don’t like the pressure that come when there’s lots of people watching.
CM: We have to ask… When’s a Premium web video coming?
LM: Well I’ve just started working on my new web video so it shouldn’t be to far away.
CM: It seems like you can do almost all the tech ledge moves. What’s been a hard one to learn? LM: Haha not quite them all, you never can. Well I struggled with feeble hard 3’s for a while but I’ve seemed to have figured them out now.
CM: You just got back from a Sydney trip, what was all that about?
LM: Yeah I went down to Sydney for a few nights to meet up with a good mate of mine, Dayvis Heyne. We did a bit of filming and went to a sick jam at Maquarie Fields Skate Park.
CM: Any dreams of coming State side?
LM: I think all Aussie riders dream of going to the States. I would love to go there and ride all the different parts of the country and one day to live, I’m thinking New York City.
CM: Are you going to finish school with flying colors?
LM: If I was as motivated about school as I am riding I’d be getting straight A’s, let’s just say the day I finish school will be a colorful one.
Keep up with Lewis @lewismorgann.
