A lot of kids are good, but Mikey Santillan is great—at pretty much everything. Skateboarding, photography, sobriety, the internet, but most importantly girls. It’s hard to argue with his good looks, but it’s even harder to argue with his personality which makes it so enjoyable to be around him. He’s super nice, talented, and has a lot of heart. I’ve seen him take multiple slams that would have ruined most people’s week but somehow he gets up unfazed. Mikey’s the complete package, making everyone from Kansas City proud.—Sean Malto
