Unit, one of the world’s fastest growing action sports brands, has just released a six-minute mini-documentary on one of their star athletes, Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham.
Wheelz, 19, has obtained a cult following globally for his antics with the Nitro Circus Live Tour after successfully landing 40ft Backflips, Double Backflips and Front-flips in the past six months… in a wheelchair.
The Las Vegas teenager is one of the most inspirational athletes in the entire action-sports industry; he hasn’t let spina bifida dictate his lot in life and has taken his custom-built wheelchair to places they’ve never been before, including skateparks, BMX parks and of course, the Giganta-Ramp.
Unit sat down with Wheelz during a recent trip to the USA and found out what makes the laid-back, humble teenager tick. Visit youtube.com/unitridersaus to check it out.
Following on from the successful Nitro Circus Live New Zealand Tour Wheelz is back in Vegas and preparing for the Nitro Circus Australian Regional Tour, which kicks off on March 9 at Albury’s Lavington Sports Ground.
