Says China: This series shows skateboarder right after they step off their board. A feeling of freedom, exhaustion, pain and love is what is running through your body. Maybe these feelings are the reason why skateboarding became part of their daily life. I decided to show each skater with their skateboard which is as unique as the skater. I started skateboarding again at the age of 30 and it literally became a part of my daily life as well – very quick. After work or Uni we all meet at the 2er skatepark and love what we are doing – skate every day.
