There're three things you should know about Grant. First off, he's Canadian–which gives him an advantage on a lot of things, and height isn't one of them. He's a munchkin! Second, his skating is a breath of fresh air. He actually likes to flip his board and skate transitions, which is becoming rare these days in our standard twelve-stair-rail world of skateboarding. Third, he's got good taste in music. He likes everything from Heltah Skeltah (a CD I gave him and he still owes me a board for) to The Beatles.–Joe Krolick
