A skilled longboarder fluidly danced and skated his way around the world.

Axel Massin looks like a dancer more than a skater as he hit the streets of Colombia, France, Portugal and New Zealand on his trusty longboard.

Originally from Ville d’Avray, France, the 27-year-old has taken his moves worldwide.

Skilfully and joyfully spinning around and jiving his feet while skating, Axel can sure bust a move while balancing on his thin board.

Axel said: “Longboard dancing and freestyle is a discipline that tries to combine tricks and steps to create a flow.

“It gives me a great sense of accomplishment, especially that it always takes a lot of fails to get a win.

“Longboarding has taken me to so my many incredible places.”
