NAME:  Patrick Klein

NICKNAME: Pat, or Patty

BIRTH YEAR: 1992

HOMETOWN: Frankston, Victoria

CURRENT RESIDENCE: Frankston, Victoria

SANDBOARD(S):   FREERIDE 'Villain'

RIDING SINCE: I think it's been about 4 years now...

HOW OFTEN DO YOU RIDE & WHERE: I normally go sandboarding once every 2 months or so, for a weekend at a time. I normally ride at Sandy Point near Wilson's Prom in Victoria, but have been to Port Stephens in NSW too.

FAVE LOCATION: Port Stephens because the dunes are massive and they have 40 degree steep slopes!

FAVE TRICK: Jumps; Frontside 360 grabbing Melon. That's my favourite trick on a snowboard and you can spin really slow and it feels super floaty. Or, super slow backside 1's grabbing the tail... because they are gangsta, ha ha!

Rails: Backside Boardslide. Because you can see the whole rail as you're sliding, and then you can spin out of the rail.

DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF RIDING: Mainly freestyle.

OTHER INTERESTS: Snowboarding, BMX, Scuba, Freediving / Spearfishing, Hiking and Camping, Muay Thai.
