This whole part was nuts.

I think I missed the fact that he relocated to Australia...and to the NT too??

Never heard of this guy but he shreds hard. Took me a minute to figure out whether he was regular or goofy. Where is he from originally if not Aus? Given the weather, skating at this level in Darwin, if that's where this is, is nuts.

His regular often looks more switch than his switch.

The skating was world class, didn't expect that at all. Proper sw flip manual sw 360 flip out, that's like PJ or Brian Peacock level stuff

seriously wild that a lot of this was filmed in darwin. you think the tech is what's impressive but just try to skate a few blocks in darwin and you will feel death calling you.

He's from France, more precisely from a small village in the country-side of the Basque Country where there is no skate scene at all. Him and his brother have been skating and filming for a very long time.

I saw him in one of Patrik Wallner's videos, (I think Meet the Stans). He does some kind of treflip manual combo on a famous Lenin statue in Bishkek.

Ten years later he's living in Australia and skating spots rarely seen.

Seems like he moved to Aus a few years ago because he's been skating contests in 2019.

Hopefully there's an interview in Slam to go with this.

Not familiar with Aussie geography (if that's what the reason is), what's so hard about skating there?

heat/humidity. when i went i was blown away by the spots though. and i guess because no one really skates up there {i know you exist by the way people who do skate up there} none of it is skate stopped/obviously skateable architecture isn't shied away from.
