Lowell, Massachusetts is a tough town. The birthplace of Jack Kerouac and home of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward [the inspiration for the movie, "The Fighter"], Lowell also gets to lay claim to two pro skaters that have risen to prominence in the past few years for their tech-gnar abilities: Dave Bachinsky as well as Ammo, Axion and Tensor pro Manny Santiago.
Manny has been on a steady rise for a few years now, performing well in contests, dropping multiple video parts and winning over new fans daily with his unending charisma. Having just dropped his last VX 1000 filmed video part [He's going all HD for the next one] on his birth day "9-10-1," We caught up with Manny between practice runs at the most recent Dew Tour stop to talk about the video, contests, his obsession with digital social media networking tools and what else he's got cracking for the rest of the year. Manny slays all so watch out! Full video interview after the jump »
