Michael Harris-walker @sk8nBruiser
Owner, Creator and Head Coach of the Sk8 Therapy Team
South Australia(when in town)
I started skateboarding 33 years ago on a cheap fish tail Kmart board and mucked around for many years until I got a paddle pop (trick board) from a friend, ever since I have continued to skate and push myself to achive, no other sport has ever given me the satisfaction I get from my skateboard. Over the years I pushed my skill level to as high as possible with no interest of ever being Professional just to achieve what I thought wasnt possible within myself an still to this day at 41 push myself to continue to learn and now teach the benifits of skateboarding not only within the sport but using the same mentallity within my businesses (dust off get back up and try again). After over a decade working as a Youth Worker I decided to make the move and create my own Youth and community organisation Sk8 Therapy.
I'm also honoured to have the opertunity to use my knowledge of both skateboarding and empowering youth through Sk8 Therapy and Meanie Skateboards Team.
I currently hold the 2020 Rumble on the reef Masters street title and currently hold the South Australian Masters title as well.
