All Joey Cormack can think about is skating – leaving school days behind, he is continuing his schooling by distance education and spending time at the skate park, and it’s paying off.

Joey has just won the Volcom Stone Wild In the Parks at the Norfolk Skatepark at Ormeau against Queensland’s best in the 15-and-under age group.

Skating since he was 10 and competing for three years in an average of 12 competitions a year, Joey has several titles under his belt.

Joey, who says his talent lies in street skating, wants to build a career out of what he loves to do, and hopes to turn pro and travel the world – he just wants to be able to skate every day.
