Simon first hit the scene hard in 2003 when he killed it with his win at the Nixon Jib Fest, and then he went on to win the 2004 High Roller Vegas Street Rail contest. He’s had several great video parts including his part on Derelicta, Mack Dawg’s Game Show and more. For the last two winters Simon filmed for Child Support, with Defective Films that’s set to release September 2007. Be sure to check out Simon’s part in Child Support!
“I am stoked to have Simon back on the team because he is always so positive and motivated, said Eddie Lee, etnies/ThirtyTwo team manager. “The first day that Simon joined the team last week we met at the Los Angeles International Airport and headed out to New Zealand to ride with Wille Yli-Louma and Markku Koski. While we were there he was amped to ride everything from rails, to quarter pipes and backcountry cliff drops regardless of the conditions.
