JB Gillet – Back to the Streets of San Francisco

Nowadays, even though Google Maps shows you the way to the remotest corners without any problems, the boarding ticket is sent directly to your smartphone, and an Uber takes you comfortably to the Airbnb you booked in advance, only few would dare to leave school at 16 and try have a successful skateboarding career in a city on a different continent where you don’t know anybody and don’t speak the language. JB Gillet already did that in the ‘90s – a time when California was central to skateboarding and nobody was waiting for Europeans – and he succeeded. He got on New Deal and numerous other sponsors followed. We returned with him to San Francisco, where it all began.
