Jack Fardell
... and how ya goin'.
Words by Mitch Tomlinson Photos by Mitch Tomlinson May 4, 2017

Jack Fardell has spent two decades practically living on his skateboard, and the dividends have sent him further than he ever imagined.

From humble beginnings in Queanbeyan, he relocated up north on the Gold Coast and now calls Silver Lake, Los Angeles home. Still, while he resides on the West Coast, he’s a frequent flyer who visited 15 countries last year as part of Adidas’ Skateboarding team, as well as starring in the three stripes’ Away Days film. It’s just the latest dizzying chapter of Jack’s career, which saw him compete at The X Games at age 11, as well as scoring coveted covers on TWS and Thrasher.


Currently flexing in the Vans Park Series with ambitions to represent Australia in the 2020 Olympics, it’s clear that Jack is remaining as competitive and creative as ever with his undying passion for skate. We visited Jack in LA to hit some balls at the golf range in a full Adidas sweatsuit, grab a bite to eat in West Hollywood, skate a pool and finish with a cold bev. We also chat about his board first pro model with SOVRN and the GOAT himself, Slim Dusty!

Video above, pics below, shouts to Jack for being a good sport:
