This Weeks Featured Skater: Stewart MacGowan

I’ve known Stewart for a couple of years now. I’d like to think I am one of the middle ages guys he talks about below, however I know better than to think that I could have inspired or motivated anybody!! When Stewart isn’t skating he’s likely to be running he just ran in the city to surf yesterday, he currently hold the record for most amount of laps around Balnarring bowl in one run! he also has a love for DJ-ing.

Stewart thanks for your time
