A product of Sydney's southern beaches, Corbin Harris has had his fair share of hurdles thrown at him. But armed with a cheeky grin, an uncanny knack for all things skateboarding and a penchant for world domination, this grown-up grommet isn't just ollieing that proverbial gutter - he's clearing it with a front-side air. At 12 years of age Corbin dreamed of representing the Wallabies and making his name as a professional rugby player - yep, seriously. And having been pulled from De La Sale School on Mum's orders and sent to Sydney's elitist Waverley College all in the name of a challenge, the dream seemed a very likely possibility. By 14 however, he had succumbed to the harsh realisation his much anticipated growth spurt was fast becoming fiction. At the same time he'd discovered a new skate park, Vert-X, had opened down the road from his family home at Taren Point. The transformation into a recognised international athlete had begun.
