The country of Mexico has produced many incredible inline skaters over the years but few have had the high level of skating and longevity as Monterey native Walter Sanchez. I met Walter years ago when he came up to compete for the Texas Skate Series competitions and even though there was a slight language barrier, Walter was very approachable and humble and one whose skating was astoundingly technical with a confidence that was extremely enviable. For Walter, no trick seemed too difficult, no rail too high or line too daunting. If you follow him on social media you know that Walter has had a storied past of absolutely demolishing everything in front of him for a very long time and he doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon. On top of his natural skating talents, Walter is also an accomplished photographer and videographer as well as a loving and devoted family man. We wanted to get to know more about Walter so we are proud to present to you Walter Sanchez’ Top 5.
