Meet George Poole. This 17 year old Londoner based in Seignosse (FR) joined the DAKINE family a few years ago as his first sponsor.
This year, George won the Make It Count contest in Lille, winning himself a ticket to the European finals held in Lisbon. In what he described as his best skate trip ever, he shared his experience with 13 other skaters from all over Europe.
Skating in the fantastic Parque das Geraçoes with the sea in the background and in such chilling environment hardly felt like a contest. Remember his name as you’ll be hearing it more in the future. Check out the vids of the Lille contest and the European Finals, watch George’s style and you’ll see why.
