Finn started snowboarding when he was in year 6 at school, after being asked to try it out for the Interschools competition.

While he was originally an Alpine Skier, Finn had a passion to pursue Snowboard Cross as he loves the thrill of racing others down a course at high speed and loves that every course has different challenges that you need to master in order to do well.

As a member of the NSW Institute of Sport, Finn placed 3rd at the 2019 European Cup in France, a result he considers to be a career highlight.

He also achieved a 3rd place finish at the 2018 Pitzal, Austria European Cup and a top 5 finish at the 2018 Australia New Zealand Cup.
