eRolling: Seba has been making skates for a while now, however it is new to the Aggressive scene. What can you tell us about the brand and what made you want to enter this market ?
Sebastien Laffargue: From the beginning of Seba, we had the idea to create skates which can do everything we like to do on skates. From 2007, 2 years after the first Seba models came out in the shops, we already started to develop soul plates and aggressive parts.
We did many different prototypes but we never arrived to a point to finish a pure aggressive skate. We came to the first step with the FR-A, which is mostly for freeride, but able to do also few aggressive tricks.
