Besides a few phone calls as of recent, Mathieu Ledoux was much the same to me as many of you out there. A fresh face, with mind boggling new maneuvers. One difference is I in fact had been following Mathieu's skating for a couple of years now. Not knowing anything of him personally. I viewed each section as a fan, and looked forward to the next.

Jeremy Suarez Interview

Jeremy Suarez is a Belgium hero, he is warm and caring, always smiling and joking around…he is a proper entertainer and a significant part of the Forward Freestyle Family. When it comes to skating, he’s the kind of skater that clearly does it with the love. Creative and powerful, you can see him blast a park course with the craziest lines and you’ll never know what to expect next, but you can be certain that it will be insane. Switch and natural is out of the picture for him and his progress is constant. He is an amazing skater to watch and if you ever skate with him, you know you’re going to have a good time.

Making of the Game Theory: Interview with Brazilionaire

It has now been well over a year and a half of filming for the new Razor video, Game Theory. Over this time period we have literally traveled around the world with some of the best skaters on the planet making what I know will be an epic skate video. Love them or hate them the Razors team is composed of some of the hardest workers and the most unique individuals I’ve ever met, which is why I believe the team is so complete. Everyone has their own style, outlook on life, and a certain way they like to skate but when we all come together everyone is able to connect. What this does is allows everyone to learn from each other and obviously skate better. With the video deadline approaching everyone is anxiously anticipating the release of the video and even though the amount of tricks everyone needs has been met, the whole team is still motivated to go out and skate everyday in hopes of making their section even stronger. Personally, I’ve never spent so long filming for a video and I think that will be shown through the video with such a wide array of tricks, scenery, and style. I’m so happy to be part of this project and I think the video will be something that we can all be proud of.
