Jason Colledge, AKA Fooman, is notorious for shutting down any jam or contest he rides in. He has a knack for nailing ridiculous lines or just generally going huge. Yet despite his success at skatepark comps Fooman is most at home on the streets flowing some manual to grind manoeuvre or sending a massive wallride. Off the bike he can take a pretty decent photo too.


Jason has been well known in the Exeter and Devon scene for years, and he is now making a name for himself nationwide through web edits, trips and magazine features.


This year he has moved from Sunday bikes to the Wethepeople UK flow team. Expect more big things to come from the Devon bred street wizard.
