Zak Mclean » Kickflip » Busyard gap, Christchurch

Welcome the first post of Brofile. Since we realised we were quickly running out of potential groms in Christchurch, we decided to change the name from Grom of the Month so we can continue our shoot and rider profile to riders of all ages and backgrounds.

To kick things off we caught up with local ripper Zak Mclean and ventured around a few street spots in Christchurch. One thing I noted about Zak when he’s in front of the camera, he’s committed — he doesn’t give up. If he doesn’t land something, he keeps at it until it’s stomped, and stomped cleanly.

Here’s what Zak had to say for our quickfire questions:

Fav trick? Gotta love them kickflips

What are you going to be doing in 5 years? Hopefully skating.
Any final words? Ouuuutttttt.
