When you go to ride do you have a idea for new tricks or just go there and whatever comes to you, you try?  I definitely get ideas of things I want to learn from videos and seeing my friends do things. But sometimes the best tricks are ones that just come to you while riding.

At the moment Woodward is helping me live my dreams and ride as much as possible. This place is seriously a dream.

What is your favorite place to ride?  My favorite place to ride has to be the kitchen in South Bend, Indiana. It’s next level.
