He's was raised around chopping, now this Canyonleigh World Champion powerhouse is looking to introduce chopping to whole new audience.
Southern Highland's own, David Reumer will be bringing the original extreme sport to St Kilda on March 7 and will be looking to walk away with the STIHL Timbersports Australian Trophy.
The event will see 16 athletes chop and saw their way through four extreme disciplines back-to-back in a ruthless knockout competition - the most physically enduring and extreme in the series.
The winner of the knockout competition will not only be crowned Australian Champion, but go on to represent Australia at the World Trophy in Austria on May 21.
For Reumer, chopping is in his blood and he was born to do this.
"My father started wood chopping when he was 15 years old," Reumer said.
"It's all I've ever known. I grew up with an axe in my hand and around the wood chop circuits. Later on I got into the still timber sports as my career has gone on, it's just another step in my career."
Whilst introducing audiences in St Kilda to chopping, Reumer will also being proudly showing them where he's from.
"I'm going to show everyone in St Kilda what the Southern Highlands has got," Reumer said.
"The Highlands has such a depth of sporting achievers. A lot of good sportspeople come from out of here and I'm just trying to prove myself as one of them hopefully."
The winner of STIHL Timbersports Australian Trophy will also head to Austria where they will represent Australia. This is an opportunity Reumer is looking to carve up.
"A win would skyrocket my career," Reumer said.
"It would be one of my highest achievements I'd have earned. If I can get the win and have the chance to represent and pull on the green and gold in Austria, that'd be a dream come true."
To keep in competition shape, Reumer has a razor sharp daily schedule because he knows all to well how physical these competitions can be.
"I go to the gym each morning," Reumer said.
"The afternoons I just chop. I cut logs then practice doing events and copy how STIHL do their events to keep sharp. Just a lot of chopping.
"I have to keep practicing because after the Australian trophy, the run they had, it's four events in a row, at the end of it, it's just relief (laughs).
"She's a gruelling sport. Obviously when it's done and if you get the win, the feelings a little bit sweeter then if you lose."
Even if this competition dosen't finish the way Reumer would like, he still has some big news.
"I'm already on the trip to Austria," Reumer said.
"I'm the Australian rookie representative. I'll be in Austria through May for the World Trophy competition.
"Representing Australia against the top 12 world rookies is my focus for this year."
