Yes, he risks injury, but that kind of determination is nothing new for Frank Hernandez. As a teenager, he picked grapes in the Central Valley long before the strikes led by Cesar Chavez.
The experience made him passionate about going to college when it was unusual for a kid like him to ever leave town.

Quoting a mail from Matthew Mickey:
The Godfather is Frank Hernandez, a 71 year old rollerblader from Intuitionland.
He started rollerblading when he was 59. These tricks were filmed the morning of Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at the Delano, CA skatepark.
I am fortunate enough to skate with The Godfather from time to time, and I am sure you will agree that he is absolutely inspiring!
