I’ll always remember this call I received seven years ago. A girl told me that she was flirting with a rollerblader guy named Victor: he was supposed to come to our town to visit his cousins see her and hopefully skate. We ended up living together six years later: his room was a tent in the middle of my living room… (ask Micheal Garlinghouse or the people from the London time haha). This guy has so much energy you will see him destroy a rib high rail take off his skates drink a bottle of whiskey 5 feet of tequila shots on the bar, make an entire room sing old French songs, end up in some girl’s bed he met in front of a night club waking up after 3 hours of sleep to complete a hard day of proletarian labour and he will still make you laugh. He is truly passionate human being and his devotion to skating is outsized. He deserves his place in the rollerblading industry so look forward to meet him!
