Nick is a pro skater and artist who runs Isle Skateboards


Skateboarding and making art both inspire me. I started skating because I saw some cool looking kids doing trick on a park bench and from then on I knew I had to do it too.


It’s the same with painting. I would see paintings in a gallery and feel the exact same drive to make something. For me, skating and painting are linked through that rhythm. They share a connection that I find hard to describe but that I just sense.


Raphaël Zarka is a major inspiration to me he once said, ‘skateboarding is an avant-garde posture on modernist architecture’, so rad.
