BLADE CHECK | FRED BUKOWSKI

He was a bit shy (or like all Frenchies not good with the English language, and therefore quiet).
Since we were skating with a big group, and some people were skating hard, he did not got too many tricks in, but I saw potential
in his skating and was curious how he would be if we were to film with a smaller crowd.
He was already picked up by SEBA and was taking under the wings of Pottier and CJ, it isn’t so strange that Pottier brought him on to skate for his frame company FLAT.
Fred is a busy student so not a lot of time to film with him. I took 2 small trips to Paris to film this small edit for his shop NOMADESHOP filmed on 3 sunny days and 3 cold nights in Oktober and November 2018.
Plan for 2019 is to film a full profile for his other sponsors with more time and some travels outside of France.
Young skaters like Fred are the future. Keep your eyes on them and support them.
