Interview et couverture du Freedom #54, december 2003.

Manu Sanz, Freedom december 2003: The first things that comes to my mind when I think of David is all the good photos I took with him and the stock I still have of him. I think he's over exposed in the printed media so I try not to take too many photos of him and more of others riders. But still I end up with a few good David photo. Why is that ? He's actually "The Local" from Montpellier's bowl, even with all the young riders coming up, he's still flowing and flying around. A real bowl rider: carving, pumping, changing direction, fullspeed carving manuals almost slipping out, alleyoops airs ... etc. Always a treat to watch him in the bowl! Then, he's really active when it comes to look out for new spots and he often comes up with something different: like riding across a small river just before hitting a wallride with wet tires or doing a vertical icepick fakie on a the side of a tree at the trails ...
To make it worse, I often travel and ride with him. In fact we used to be neighboors for years, even when moving from Bordeaux to Montpellier we were still leaving in the same area. What can I do? I can't fight. He'll always come up with something good and I'll have to grab the camera...
