You’re from Marseille, one of the most influential European skateboarding spots of the last decade. How much did this influence your skateboarding? Are you still riding the bowl regularly today?

Ok, last question about it – what’s the best moment you had here in Italy?

I’ve always been impressed by your aggressive style – I’m mad about those stalefish you’re throwin – did you worked on that, creating a sort of signature riding style, or it just happened?
