5 Questions: Scott Quinn
If you have ever visited a skatepark in the UK, the chances are at one point in time you have seen a pint sized Scottish Blader tearing it up by the name of Scott Quinn. Quinny as he is known to his friends is one of the nicest guys you could hope to meet, with a witty sense of humor and a passion for all things Blading. Not only is he on the iconic Razors team but is also the Team Manager in the United Kingdom, organising trips, contests, new riders and everything in-between.
When he is not busy with his duties for Razors and winning iconic contest such as the infamous SlammJamm, he spends the bulk of his time teaching kids to skate up at Unit 23 Skatepark the biggest skatepark in Scotland. Not only does he run several coaching classes at Unit but he also lives there with a handfull of other Pro Extreme Sport Athletes such as Jason Phelan (Nike) and Kris Kyle (RedBull). These guys get up to some insane stuff when the lights go out at Unit (you can find videos here). Quinny is living the Blading dream and we are proud to have a Top 5 with the Scottish Powerhouse.
