Julien Stranger #20.
Who are some people who've had a predominant influence on the way you skate?
Mickie Reyes and Aaron Murray, Mark Gonzales - he always made me push myself a lot. It's different with every person. With Mickie, it is his attitude towards the terrain, he can see lines no one else does. He always goes fast, combinations, really high energy. Aaron Murray influenced me a lot in pools and the lines he could draw. He's like a master of pools, kind of figuring them out like a puzzle. Mark because he's always been at the forefront, just pushing street skating. He's got rad style.
Julien talks about his influences in an old Transworld interview with Thomas Campbell. I like to get in some of the slightly lesser known names and picked this quote because Julien mentioned Aaron Murray.
