Jean Postec Personal History:

Jean Postec was born in France. When he was 9 years old, Jean Postec was watching The Simpsons, and saw Bart Simpson riding his green skateboard in the opening to the show. That's what inspired him. He says he had a hard time learning how to skate without magazines and good ramps, but he slowly started to meet more people and get better and better. At 14 years old he started taking trips to Canada to skate with Pierre-Luc Gagnon and Max Dufour every summer, and at 16 he started taking trips to San Diego. He now lives in San Diego, and skates 5 days a week, taking the weekend off to surf. (thanks Kingpin)
