Borja Santiago

A few years ago i was skating at Bristo with Jonny Black, it was pretty late in the evening and we were the last ones left skating. Then out of nowhere this guy i've never seen before rolls up and starts ripping straight off the bat. At first i thought it was Javier Sarmiento, they have a similar style but i quickly realised that it wouldn't have been him. We got talking, well kind of, turns out he had just arrived in the U.K and didn't speak a work of English. Several trips and skate sessions later he was fluent in Scotish slang.

He returned to Madrid a year and a half later and opened a skate shop 'Welcome Skateboarding'. He sent me a message last week regarding a Berrics type TF he has just opened.

Looks sick, check it out yo!
