Been skating for almost 7 years racing for 5 years Grew up in SLC UT -> Monterrey CA -> Sacramento CA -> San Luis Obispo, CA where im now going to school at CalPoly for a degree in Industrial Technology and operations. Skating has dominated as the focus of my life and i plan to keep with it as long into the future as I can. There is so much passion in every angle of skating from the industry and craftsmanship to the global community and competition, to the introspective and artistic nature of self-progression. I feed off of all these angels and have obsessively immersed my mind in the world of skating. I wish to never get tired or grow apart from skating, the life it has given me is priceless and nothing beats the feeling of surfing a bowl or flying down a mountain road….except, of course, my beautiful wife 😉

” I grew up in France and moved recently in BC, Canada. For sure I miss the french roads but due to the longboard community I started to discover the local hills and riders here and it’s great. Longboard is so nice when you travel like I do. It helps you to meet new people and explore new places ! I maybe havethe longest downhill road in BC as a homespot now, so I won’t complain haha. I’m not a racer, maybe one day I’ll do a race season, who knows? But for me, skating is just a way to have fun, get some sensation and share that with your buddies!!! ”

”I’ve been riding for a little while now. Always looking for new tricks to learn whether it’s freestyle, dancing or even downhill and freeride. My style is more freestyle oriented but I like to ride halfpipes and street parks. Eventually I want to be able to mix flatland freestyle with downhill freeride; that would enhance my own style even more.”
