I first started riding at a Circus Kumarani Kai Iwi Lakes festival, when I had a little play on a unicycle. I then learnt but stopped riding because I didn`t know how much could be done on a unicycle. Later I heard about Chris Huriwai after he won the world champs and contacted him. I started learning street and flat from him and haven't stopped. My first UNICON was UNICON 16 in Italy, 2012. Since then I have attended multiple Uniweekends and Uninats, UNICONs, and an NAUCC. EUC is definately on the bucket list!
