Q&A with Kieran Reilly
–When did you first think about the triple flair?
I feel like the seed first planted after trying and learning doubles. Eventually getting that trick dialled in and doing it more, the hype and adrenaline had kind of gone from them and I thought I was pretty capable of another rotation and Red Bull helped make that possible!
– Double flairs are only just becoming a trick people are doing now. How long have you been doing double flairs?
I think I did my first ever one around 2 years ago but it wasn’t something I did frequently, and then in the last year I’ve tried to do them a lot more to dial them in.
