She rides like she isn't afraid of anything, fast and determined. She reminds us a bit of Julz Lynn. Fearless. Watching 10 year old Vianez Morales skate at Venice Skatepark is like being back in the 70's and seeing skateboarding at it's purest. She doesn't think about "contest lines", points and what scores big with the judges - she just skates. She picks each run based on how she feels at that moment and executes trick after trick, back to back, so well that it just all flows together. Then you stop and take a look at the video you shot and realize the line she just put together was totally sick! We hope you enjoy getting to know Vianez.
