i enjoy

On windy days, the wind will really throw you around, so it feels really good when I nail it and get the full 10 points, even with the disturbance from the wind.

Strong points

“I’ve been told there’s a huge gap between my usual silly self and how keen and serious I am [when competing]. Watch for my dynamic—and dare I say handsome—form.”
