Not too much is known about the mysterious and laid-back man, but you can expect to see him roller skating on the boardwalk any day that you venture down into Pacific Beach. He is known for playing classical music, making friends while mimicking slow motion moves, and pleasing the crowds of beach goers. However, local residents will soon be able to get a glimpse into SLOMO’s personal life and the path he took that landed him where he is today.
