Trendy Frenchman in 'Free Magazine video release shocker!'
Only messing, it's fantastic that Free took up the mantle of the much missed Kingpin magazine, showcasing pan European talent in a skate-world often obsessed with the Anglosphere.
That said, Ludo Mendez is very much a trendy French man but also very much a fantastic skateboarder; both so much so that we cant remember his t-shirt coming untucked once throughout this Thomas Vigoureux curated clip!
A man with a stupendous amount of pop, he equally enjoys a de-rigueur ride-on grind, which makes us big fans - when we can kinda fool ourselves we might be able to do some tricks in a video it sends our ego's rocketing skywards. Even if reality would bring it crashing down, we do love a little bit of imagined relatability!
