All About Randy Bacon


Randy Bacon


I’ve lived all over BC so its hard to say. I’m currently living in Nanaimo BC if that helps.


Nanaimo BC

Go To Set-up

Rayne Avenger, Gullwing Winged Munkaes, and 70mm Rayne Lust wheels

Race or Freeride, Why?

Definitely Racing, something fast and flowy.

Riding Since

2003ish pretty much as soon as I graduated high school. Yes, I’m that old.

With Rayne Since

This year (2013), I’ve always been pretty close with everyone at Rayne and am stoked to be officially part of the family now.

Words to Live by

“I’ve always done whatever I felt like doing in life. People may try to stop me, and convince me I’m wrong, but I won’t change.” ― Haruki Murakami

“No matter how bad things are, you can always make things worse.” ― Randy Pausch

Turn Ons/ Offs

Turn Ons; Sense of humour, Smile, and Intelligence Turn offs; Inconsiderate people, Bad grammar, Inability to go with the flow.

First Set up

I think it was a Sector 9 cosmic trilam.

Do’s and Don’ts

Do; Smile and wave Don’t Heat out spots Hit cars, I’m over that

One Superpower

The ability to Teleport, there are so many undiscovered hills.

Scariest Experience

Skating related Hitting a portion of the Cabot Trail blind close to dark and having to carve going like 90km/h just to stay on the road.

If you were a hot dog, would you eat yourself?

No, hotdogs are gross

If you had a time machine, when would you be?

Back to 2003 cause I’d be better than K-rimes at that juncture in time

If you were paid in M & Ms how many bags would you need?

A lot of almond and peanut butter M&M’s, like 20 bags an hour.

Zombies invaded earth, what board do you use?

Demonseed, It’s a tank, no need to double tap.

Favorite Skater

Casey Morrow, dude kills every aspect of skating.

Rainy Day

I’d probably sleep in and then go play hockey followed by Laundry and TV, I hate doing laundry more than anything.. Can’t forget Sushi, thats a must.

Biggie or Tupac

Biggie for sure, I never really listened to rap growing up but somehow Juicy by Biggie has always stuck with me.

One Animal, Why?

A pigmy goat, Alege once claimed all goats are assholes, I’d like to prove him wrong.


I don’t do so well with heights or confined spaces

Favourite Event

This is a really tough question, there is Definitely more than one. Sully is my favourite race, Jody kills it every year. Saltspring Slip and Slide is another one of my favourites.

Spare Time

My spare time consists of slowpitch in the spring and hockey all winter. Almost forgot about the hours spent at Switchback not really doing much of anything.
