Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
I felt like I was Usain Bolt.
What is your inspiration to keep skating?
Discover new motions, new tricks, and meet new persons.
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
Actually the inline skating community is not that big and because of this it is truly friendly. When you consider yourself an “inline-skater” you can easily meet other “inline-skaters” from all around the world and this is amazing.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
I find inspiration in others sports I do like skiing. They are very different but at the same time they have common DNA. I truly love to skate with people who do both sports.
What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
The most important thing is to have fun and be safe. To achieve pleasure from skating you just need to grab a pair of skates and to be safe. Just go step by step.
Imagine a world filled with animals who can skate. If you could be any of those animals what would you be and why?
A bird so that I could fly and skate all around the world.
