Ihr solltet alle unseren Danny Wainwright aus Brsitol kennen. Ja, der Danny der noch immer den highest Ollie je gemacht hat und damit vor ein paar Jahren in Amiland die Tür zum Pro Sein geöffnet hat...Aber nicht nur der Ollie, sondern auch andere Qualitäten aufs Skateboarden und auf seine "social" Skills zeichnen Danny aus!
