Resurrect The Destructed – David González

David Gonzalez

Born and raised in the rough suburbs of Colombia, David González made it his mission to forge his own way of life the only way he knew how, through skateboarding. Currently residing in Long Beach, CA, and having spent most of the summer injured and homebound, Desillusion Magazine’s Pierre David stopped by the former SOTY’s home to gain an insight into David’s world.
