Why did you start skimin? I started skimmin cause it’s fun af.
It wasn’t an overall decision, I just did what I wanted to do, so I went skimming
What influences your riding?
Leo influenced me a lot in the first years, motivational dude through and through. Now it's Adrien who influences me, who's showing what limits can be over gone in skimboarding.
