ASPIRING cyber security experts Kristian Giles and Caleb Prince are quick with their hands and know how to play their cards right.

The duo make up CK Magic and perform card tricks together in their spare time.

They’ll be among roaming performers at the free City of Wanneroo Youth Market in Girrawheen on April 21 from 10am-2pm.

The 18-year-olds from Quinns Rocks were school mates at Butler College where they discovered a shared passion for magic tricks, as well as cyber security.

The pair first fell in love with magic as children when they were each blown away by seeing magicians perform.

Kristian said his earliest memory was seeing a magician make a coin pass through his head while Caleb remembered a family friend performing “mind blowing” magic tricks.

From then on they both wanted to become magicians and perform themselves.

“Being able to entertain and amaze people with something as simple as a deck of cards is just amazing and made me fall in love with it,” Kristian said.

“The first real trick I learnt was a trick popularised by David Blaine called two card monte.

“I enjoy entertaining people, and being able to do it with something I’m passionate about makes it all the more better.”

Admitting that he never leaves the house without a deck of cards, Kristian said he took any chance he could get to perform and watch people’s reactions.
