"Iszuh as he is called is a guy who really lives up to his last name – a glad guy who really enjoys the pool. With high speed and nice flow he is like a fish in the water. His natural state. He thinks that there is actually no other feeling to compare with standing on his board. – “skating allowed me to step out my comfort zone and push myself to my limits. I can relate skateboarding to life… cause it’s a process. Taking slams, getting frustrated. It taught me to always get back up and keep pushin”.
JC, as he usually is called, was born and raised in Seville, Spain. He took his first push on a skateboard when he was 13 years old.

Lived in Lisbon for some years and later in Spain (Almendralejo) for about 3 years. Nowadays I live in Arrifana, Portugal. Started skating 2013. Proud to ride with a Goofy stance and if I where to pick some of my favorite things in the park/street, it would probably be skating gaps.

With others pushing you to reach your goals. The best things I got from skateboarding are my friends

Anyway, we’re glad to have this guy on our team.
