This Frenchman is very focused, positively determined and has a big heart to go full steam on his wooden plank. In between skating around San Diego at the local parks and the raw dog streets, we had some fierce battles playing Table Tennis, Connect Four and Chinese Checkers. Witnessing him in person breaking in new shoes is really ridiculous, just like his skating. This guy has a bright future ahead.—Willy Santos
