Fact or Faction 2021 – Barrels and bullriding
20 August at 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Do you dream of being the next Mick Fanning or Nat Fyfe? Maybe you want to be just like Tones and I. Don’t hold back on those dreams! Come get inspired, build confidence and resilience.
Local legend Sullivan McLeod, author, surfer and international bull rider aims to inspire young students at Boyanup Primary School to embrace new adventures and exciting experiences heading into high school.
Students will hear about Sully’s life adventures, including his attempt to join the pro surfing world and USA bull riding tour, learn about risk taking and confidence building. Students will have the opportunity to test their own confidence and skill on a mechanical bucking bull.
He’s performed around the world as a stand-up comedian for seven years with gigs at Melbourne Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Festival, London Comedy Store, Improv Comedy Club (LA) and The Comedy Store (LA).
Sully has had many career paths including being a door-to-door salesman for a telecommunication company (Sydney), a spy for a Greek Restaurant (Rhodes), an assistant to a professor to check the originality of ideas (European Patent Office, Holland), a canvasser for dodgy solicitors to see if anyone wanted to sue their landlord (London), an audience member paid to laugh at lame jokes for live TV shows (Hollywood), a driver of a drilling rig without a truck driver’s licence (Kalgoorlie), and a stooge for a magician in his street show in London, a professional surfer for nine months as well as a professional bull rider in USA Tour.
