Hi, my name is Korahn Gayle. My discipline is skateboarding street. My friends call me Korahn. I was born on 3 March 1988 in Bristol, UK. My special talent is football. My philosophy of life is don't worry, be happy. My favourite food is homemade cheese, ham and tomato toasties. My favourite music is pretty much anything.

Bio

Korahn Gayle is a hot topic on the UK street skate circuit! Having burst on to the scene just a couple of years ago, he has already begun to make an impression at home and abroad. Having picked up his first sponsor in 2009, Korahn has gone from strength to strength and has recently signed a new contract with Red Bull that will surely cement his place amongst the stars.

Although still up and coming, Korahn has achieved a few notable successes to date. In 2010, he took fifth place at the UKSA British Skateboarding Championships in Corby, UK, and then walked away with Best Trick status at the same event the following year in Hemel Hempstead. In 2012 he gained valuable experience at the BaySixty6 relaunch in London and got to the semi-finals of the Simple Session.

Korahn kicked off 2013 in style - a Red Bull excursion to Cagliari, Sardinia, where he spent his time making videos and doing photoshoots with ‘Bristol’s Finest’ photographers Louis Graine and George Nevin.

We expect many more great things from this Bristolian in future!
