About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel as much as possible and to skate in as many of those places I can

ABOUT ME

I love to party, skate, and travel and enjoy meeting people and checking out strange new places (preferably with a board in hand). At the moment I'm part way through a crisis, worried about selling out and settling down. To combat this I'm aiming to skate a few hundred into mainland Europe, on a tight budget, and hopefully do so more often

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

There's nothing better than local knowledge and the opportunity to meet like minded people, and that's why I'm here.

Interests

Longboarding
Extreme/adventure sports
Loud music
Having a good time

Music, Movies & Books

Music:
Anything with a good beat and a good vibe, preferably live.

Books:
Down and Out in Paris and London (Orwell), reminds me far too much of the years without a job and living on pocket change in a couple of cities, especially in London and Paris.

John Dies at the End by Dave Wong is also a strong favourite - as the review puts it "it taps into your existential dread on one page, and has you laughing the next". Utterly hillarious.

Movies:
La Haine - the first film in a foreign language I understood without subtitles and a cracking film top.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Under the cover of night, I once climbed the Discoveries monument in Lisbon.
