Sanny More and/or Less

Some say our lives can be seen as a sequence of choices. Choices can be influenced by films we’ve seen, music we’ve heard, certain people we know or some activities we love so much that they can inspire us for a lifetime. Sanny is a Belgian woman in her forties who has made some clear choices in her life, all based on the love for skateboarding that she found when she was still very young and continues to love now that she’s all grown up.
