AURELIEN GIRAUD, ONE OF THE BEST SKATER OF ITS GENERATION

Born in Lyon, Aurelien Giraud started to practice skateboard when he was 4 years old with his father. Afraid of nothing, he started to build its own path to be one the best French skateboarder worldwide. In 2021, Aurelien will participate as one the crew member of the French selection to the Tokyo Olympics Game – featuring for the first time in their history skateboard as an Olympic disciplinary, proof that skateboarding is now more than ever a sport that counts.

It feels a bit like if I was taking a strall with part of my skate onto my wrist as if it is were always on my side!
