Franky

NFG Team Rider

I’m From the bay area and currently residing in Oakland.

I have been skating for almost 4 years.

Right now im riding a riedell 336 boot on avanti mag plates with stock trucks. nfg mfg quad stock wheels with bionic toe stops and cib slide blocks. 

Although I’m local to Oakland, my favorite spots are the Fremont and Newark skateparks. They were so friendly to me as a baby skater back in 2018 and ive grown a lot there. 

All of my influences come from my friends and local skaters. I got back in skating as an adult with the help of @babygirldee 

Another hobby of mine is that I am a collective member at Bound Together Bookstore. An anti profit, volunteer run bookstore in the lower haight that carries specifically literature and theory in radical leftist / anarchist politics.

KT

NFG Team Rider

Where are you from, where are you now?

Born and currently based in Oakland, CA! 

 

How long have you skated for? 

I got my first pair of skates in September 2020 and I started park skating in January 2021. 

 

Favorite spot? 

To skate? Newark Skatepark because I love me some smooth concrete. In general? Brooklyn Basin in Oakland and Indian Rock Park in Berkeley are pretty sweet. 

 

Whats your current set up? 

I’m riding on vegan Bonts Parkstars with sunlite plates, Bigfoot slide blocks, Penny 3 inch trucks, and NFG 54mm teardrop wheels. I recently got and am currently breaking in some grey Riedell 336 skates with an Avanti Magnesium plate and Wildbones plate sliders that I hope to dedicate for the skateparks while I use my Bonts for the streets. 

 

favorite skaters/influences? 

A lot of folks on this team continue to inspire me! I met Mo and Victoria at the Fremont Skatepark when I first started park skating, and others I came across on instagram first. Man, the awe I felt watching all of these skaters shred and realizing how limitless quad skating is! I specifically remember seeing Abri (@abrisk8s) do a top soul in a skate edit, and that ended up becoming my fave grind. 

 

Also heavily inspired by the rollerblading community. I blade a little and picked it up last summer too. 

 

Hobby other than skating? 

I dabble in baking and pen & ink drawing. I also love playing Tetris 99. My guilty pleasure is laying in bed and binge watching TV shows all day.
