A massive bright star glowing so brightly that he is on the radar of skaters worldwide. In the last week he has been on a Melbourne Butter Goods trip and has been seen eyeing cross-street routes, hitting untouched spots and powering through speedy double lines with Ben Gore. This latest round of 16 Points is a result of a catch up with him towards the end of his stay.
