Time is the most valuable thing you can ever spend.

The fastest and most successful downhill skater the UK has yet produced, Pete has been leading the scene since before there was a scene, and rolling on our decks for many years. If you’re at a race in Europe – he’s probably been there a week already and bombed the local mountain pass while you were still on the ferry. A true legend of downhill… metal for breakfast.

Pete set a new Downhill Skateboard World Speed Record in 2017 with an astonishing 91.17mph! Check the article on the Guinness World Records Site here.
