Parker Siegele is an up and coming Australian ripper. He's pretty easy going, but when he starts riding he gets serious, as evidenced by his healthy bag of tricks like the crispy toeside wake-to-wake 1080 in the video below. Parker has been getting in a lot of riding on Lake Conway lately and it definitely shows!
