Advocate for Skateboarding.
Skateboarding has been my passion for over 30 years.
In the 70’s I got my first skateboard from my Dad, I loved sitting on it and just cruising.
During the late 80’s I really got into modern Skateboarding while in London. Street skateboarding just started, and I was fascinated – the world we lived in suddenly became a large skatepark with limitless possibilities.
Upon my return to Hong Kong, it became my passion in life. I started a proper skateboard shop with my partner. I became involved with skateboarding programs with various authorities in the late ’90s, which resulted in several world-class skateparks in Hong Kong. Today I am engaged with skateboarding plans for the Asian Games and the Olympics.
I have been lucky to witness the beginning of Hong Kong skateboarding & street culture. From Skateboarding in the streets as rebels to skating in skateparks as Athletes for the Olympics, we have come a long way!
I have over 25 years of training experience, having worked as a professional trainer in various service and skills oriented industries, including Hotels, Airlines, and Security companies. I know how proper instruction can benefit the learner.
Therefore, over the years I have put together different skateboarding training programs, e.g.
- Beginner programs to Advanced Hong Kong Team programs
- Train-the-Trainer programs for Coaches and Instructors
- Judge accreditation programs
- Training programs for authorities and park management
- Lectures and Seminars about Skateboarding
- Consultation for Skatepark development
Learning skateboarding can be fun and challenging, and it has never ceased to bring me joy and a sense of accomplishment.
I would love to share this experience with you.
