South Coast freeride motorcycle star Luke McNeil will finally get to show his tricks to his family, when he suits up for his first Crusty Demons show in home territory.
The 27-year-old from Jervis Bay has previously been part of the action in Melbourne and overseas, but never in NSW, that is until this year.
McNeil is part of the Rise of the Demons outdoor arena tour which will visit Campbelltown Stadium in Leumeah on Saturday, August 10.
"I watched my first back-flip there, I remember by first Crusty Demons show and I pulled my cape off and I had tears in my eyes," he said.
McNeil was just 17 when he began riding for the extreme sports global brand and has starred in many of their movies as well being a stunt double for Vin Diesel.
He attributes motorcycle ace Robbie Maddison as one of his idols and friends, who helped him early in his career.
"To have someone in my corner like him, he's an awesome person to follow in his footsteps," McNeil said.
The South Coast star has high hopes of bringing something amazing to Jervis Bay that will have the world talking, but wouldn't give too much away except he would one day be jumping something huge.
"So for when generations after will be able to look at it and say this dude's followed his dream and made it happen," he said.
McNeil and friends will wow crowds with daredevil stunts on the back of dirt bikes later this year, in the first Australian arena tour in more than a decade.
