JASON WATTS IS A RARE BREED. GUY'S LIKE HIM DON'T COME ALONG OFTEN. HE'S A PARTY ANIMAL AND A MACHINE ON THE BIKE. HE WILL AIR HIGHER THAN YOU AND THEN NOSE MANUAL AROUND THE PARK JUST FOR FUN. YOU HAVE TO ADMIRE HIM. IT'S SUCH A PLEASURE TO HAVE HIM ON HARO.

"I ALWAYS HAD A SOLID LOCAL SCENE THAT WAS ALWAYS DOWN TO DO WHATEVER. WHETHER IT WAS DIG TRAILS OR CATCH A TWO HOUR TRAIN RIDE JUST TO RIDE A DIFFERENT SKATEPARK."

"IT'S ALWAYS THE THOUGHT AND DREAM WHEN GROWING UP RIDING IN AUSTRALIA IS TO GO TO THE U.S. AND JUST GET TO RIDE THE AMAZING PLACES OVER THERE AND MEET ALL THE AMAZING RIDERS. I FEEL EXTREMELY LUCKY I'VE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT ALREADY."

"DEFINITELY HAVE SOME AMAZING KIDS COMING UP A LOT ARE TOO FOCUSED ON THE BAR SPINS AND TAIL WHIPS, BUT THERE ARE A FEW THAT STAND OUT TO ME THAT ARE RAD AND RIDE JUST FOR THE FUN OF BEING A KID."

"IT'S SOMETHING I'VE ALWAYS DONE. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN RIDING BOWLS AND ONE DAY CAME UP WITH THAT. GO BOWL DOGGIN FOR THE DAY. HITTING A BOWL AS FAST AS YOU CAN AND FIND NEW LINES WITHIN IT"

"WE WOKE UP ONE DAY AND JUST DIDN'T FEEL LIKE FILMING. SO ME AND BIG SALAD (TROY CHARLESWORTH) WENT TO THE CASINO IN THE MORNING. WE WON AND LOST SOME MONEY, BOUGHT SOME ICE CREAM, THEN HEADED TO THE BEACH FOR SOME DRINKS."

"I JUST RIDE MY BIKE AND HAVE A GOOD TIME WHATEVER I'M RIDING. I THINK HAVING A CRAZY IMAGINATION HELPS SO I'LL THINK OF SOMETHING WEIRD THEN JUST GO AND TRY IT. IF IT WORKS THEN I'M STOKED IF IT DOESN'T AWW WELL."

"GETTING ON THE PODIUM WITH GARY YOUNG AND CHASE HAWK AT THE 2014 U.S. OPEN WAS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE BEST THINGS TO HAPPEN TO ME. TO STAND UP THERE WITH TWO ABSOLUTE LEGENDS WAS SO AMAZING."

"YOU REALLY GET TO UNDERSTAND WHY THESE DUDES ARE SPONSORED UP AND THE BEST IN THE WORLD. ONE, BECAUSE THEY ARE AMAZING ON A BIKE, BUT THEY ARE ALSO THE MOST GENUINE, KIND, AND FUNNEST DUDES IN THE SPORT."
