One and a half score and seven years ago, Matt French was brought forth onto this earth. Climbing the high reaches of evergreen trees did more to injure the health of onlookers rather than himself, so he moved onto more deciduous fare. Maple trees had a way of tossing his carcase to the ground, and he’s been astride maple and rolling ever since. At some point raising pen for the cause, Matt has drawn near to skateboarding in both creation and devastation. Amidst the wind and the abounding sky he rages forward on paper and pavement.
