Flaki FB Artwork

This is something very special. I´ve allways considered skateboarding and fingerboarding to be some kind of an artform. Every fingerboarder has his own style and tricks and i have always
been stunned by the creativity in this sport.
Some people put their energy into crazy freestylemoves, some build innovative barriers, and some people tune their FB-equipment or redesign boards. OUTPUT is the keyword.


One of the most inspiring persons and OUTPUT-multitalents is one of my best friends: Dennie Flagmeyer.
Everyone only calls him Flaki. He was Shortwood, he is into making music, he has mad graffiti
skills, he is founder of NWDC, he is one of a kind partyanimal and he has such a good sense of
humor.
He is always into new projects, his first album will hit the streets soon and i forgot to say, that i like his style of fingerboarding.
Flaki just got on Substance wheels a few weeks ago and some might have seen the special engraved BW edition in the flatface-webshop last week.
I myself am happy to have two of these unique engraved boards in my collction, they are among my fav. treasures. I know Flaki made a lot of these unique engravings over the last two years and he told me, he took pictures of most of the boards.
I simply had to ask him for the pictures to show them here.
Flaki is such a nice guy and i am proud we are friends.
Shortwood might be dead but Flaki is back producing small amounts of boards from time to time.
The best thing about these boards are the intention behind: i am 100% sure every single board is Flaki´s way of art-expression.
Check out the designs and get inspired...
