It’s hard to believe that Aussie skate legend Corbin Harris initially rejected the sport when he was growing up. Opting to put his energy into footy and surfing, he was 14-years-old when a Vert-X indoor skatepark opened up in his area which was the beginning in a career-long connection with the sport. Fast forward 20-odd years and it’s clear that his passion for life is fueled by his love for skateboarding, and the doors it has opened up for him.
Busy hosting surf and skate events around the world, along with managing his own brand, and taking care of his family, it can be tricky to pin the tireless Sydneysider down. However, we caught up with Corbin on a sunny day in Bondi, to chat about his introduction to skating, his career and finding that sweet balance of work/life/family. Hell, there’s even a cameo from none other than champion skater (and Corbin’s mate) Shaun White.
