My name is Mikel Artega, I have started skating with Aritz Ortega and he is one of the guys I know best. Since we were kids, his passion has always been skating. Everyday we went rolling from sun up until the sun went down. Even when he was really young, you could notice that he was going to be "someone" because he always stands out over the others. He has the "gift" and a technique that you cannot see in other skaters. He rarely fails, but when he does, he learns from it an keeps on and on. He is a really focused rider.

Personally I believe he has the behaviour of a true pro for the following reasons: He has won everything by himself. He's the kind of guy you always want to skate with, a friendly and humble person. A very constant skater, he pursues his objectives until he gets them. He has some really good, sometimes a bit mad and risky, ideas. He always tries to help to improve every situation. He works out 6 days a week to keep his body fit. He takes his job, whatever it is, seriously and this makes it so easy to work with him on anything such as filming. He usually places near the top of any contest he attends to. What can I say? He is a good skater, and a better person.

Why u guys are not able to use the new intro it looks way better and quality is better too.
Stop being unprofessional fags and try to take your buisness a bit more serious, small things mostly make the difference of being good or bad, this was bad ..
