He got this Rocket (Maurice Richard) focus when he skate, he can turn from being a calm and reserve person to being one of the craziest human beings on wheels! I feel blessed every time I go on tour with him. I remember the time when we used to hitch-hike to get from one city to another just to skate. Wow! Writing his intro brings back so many good memories with him. Actually some of the best in my blading journey. Thank you Charles for being who you are and you will always be a huge inspiration for me and so many others.
