My name is Taimore McDowell but most of my friends/family call me Tai.


I am 23 years old and have 1 brother and 1 sister and a dog called Winnie


I’m originally from Slough a but I spend/spent a lot of time in High Wycombe. I studied Photojournalism at Staffordshire University and graduated with a 2:1 in July 2019. The dream is to take skateboard photographs for a living. 


In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, watching skateboarding content, discovering new music, watching countless interviews and documentaries on musicians/skateboarders


I first got into skateboarding when I was 11 years old and life was never the same again


I love skateboarding because it keeps me sane and active. 


I love being a Skateboarding Foundation Coach and a part of the Skateboarding Foundation community because I’ve not taught skateboarding to anyone before at I enjoy the feeling of having to think about all the basics again as it takes me back to being an 11 year old kid again.
