Featuring Auckland rider Owen de Mooy
'I would have to agree with Brian’s comments in the last Evolve Insider, since getting my board I haven’t stopped smiling. I’m always trying to find ways to get out and ride. I recently got some Shred Lights for the board which means I can now head out for rides at night- a whole other level of fun.'

What is your occupation?
Solution Advisor for Datacom. Yes, I work with Brian Lomas (it’s a small world!)
Skating history/how did you find out about Evolve?
I was never a skater when I was younger, in fact, I can count the number of times I tried it, and the resulting scrapes and bruises from those attempts.
I needed to find something to help with my work commute, I had looked at a few options, e-bikes, and e-scooters but nothing really wow'ed me. I didn’t want to spend a heap of coin on something I was only going to use for my daily commute. So after several late nights Googling, watching videos I finally found Evolve and it ticked pretty much all my criteria. I was glad that O could get a demo ride at BoarderTown, which is close to my work, from the very first moment I pulled the trigger I was hooked!
What is your favorite Evolve product?
I love my Evolve Bamboo GT with AT wheels but the range of the carbon really interested me. I think the GTX would be the perfect mix!
What do you primarily use the board for?
I bought it mainly to help with the work commute, but I haven’t been in the office a lot lately… so I’ve found myself making any excuse to get out and ride.
Where is your favorite place and ride and why?
Anywhere, and everywhere… I love riding it around town, to the office, out to meetings. The reactions you get are awesome! I have recently taken it on some longer runs out in the country which has been awesome too. I can’t think of a place I wouldn’t want to ride my board.
What do you enjoy about being in the Auckland Riders group?
I hadn’t even heard of the group until I bumped into Brian in the lift at work with my board in hand, he mentioned I should check the group out and join, which I did. I’ve only attended one meet up so far, but it’s been great, everyone is super awesome and helpful. I’m looking forward to more events and sharing our experiences.
