Pierre-Luc was dubbed a "control freak" during his VH1 reality TV show, "The X Life," and it transfers over to his skating. The 32-year-old has perhaps the best board control of any skater in the field and is one of the most technical. PLG earned the first SKB Vert 3-peat (2008-2010) but was nipped for gold in 2011. He owns 17 XG medals: 7 gold, 8 silver and 2 bronze. PLG is in the best shape of his life with boxing and gym time in addition to daily skating.
