Sergio Santoro / INTERVIEW / "Original Rocker" / PREMIERE

About the Sergio Santoro phenomenon; well, its greatest strength has to be that it speaks for itself, as both the character and his skating style have been making an Internet sensation for quite a few years now - as though a testimony to how genuine passion is bound to keep overflowing over time, all the while transcending geographical and language barriers. Sergio's skating is quite unique, a logical consequence of growing up in an era allowing possible peeks and picks into a worldwide array of inspirations, resulting in a trick repertoire and body language that transcends fashion. But all the transcending aside, one verb that's frequently a part of Sergio's expressed delivery (as the interview below can attest) is "exploring"; really, Sergio is but an artless, curious mind with genuine appreciation for everything positive in life, and an aura that's bound to absorb you the second he pops off a smile.

Whilst he's actually out there casually scoring crazy Instagram points to the point of catching the attention of the Californian economic elite, and many of his own people love him to the point of developing expectations, Sergio's primarily consideration seems to remain skateboarding every day and appreciating every single second of just that; thereby shattering many potential preconceived opinions regarding e-fame, or impulses of territoriality. Sergio knows that neither him, nor the Brazil scene has to prove anything to the world; so below, we discussed ways to spread awareness about its incessant, quality local productions of all kinds, the unique styles present there but also throughout the world, the language barrier with non-Portuguese speaking countries and much more.

The heart knows no borders and who better than Sergio to represent sincere dedication over any other arbitrary construction of the mind. Hoping that the sunshine Sergio radiates conveys in words, LIVE is thankful and honored to present the first Sergio Santoro interview for a European magazine and therefore, a non-Portuguese speaking audience.
