Currently aged 24, Las Vegas-based Fotheringham has been hitting skateparks for 16 years and a few years ago broke a world record for doing a backflip in his chair. Fotheringham views himself as having an advantage over BMXers and skateboarders because he is in his chair all the time and can constantly improve his skills.
