Meet Vladik Scholz
You also get to know yourself and your body better. You learn to coordinate it, to deal with fear, to develop patience and ambition to finish things.
YOU’RE STUDYING CLOTHING TECHNOLOGY BESIDES YOUR SKATEBOARDING CAREER. WHY IS THAT?
It started with a desire to tailor my own trousers. I wanted them to be something different than you could get on the market, in line with my preferences and requirements. So I taught myself to sew and it just made sense to study the subject to acquire a higher level of knowledge about pattern construction and everything that goes with it
AND HOW DOES THAT FIT IN WITH SKATEBOARDING?
I’m pretty detail-oriented. That’s why I want to express myself as perfectly as possible when I skateboard. Besides the actual skateboarding, my clothing style is also part of the whole. That pushes me to develop new ideas and keep going. So both of my passions complement each other.
It’s only you who defines yourself the level of perfection you want to achieve and no one else.
IF YOU COULD MAKE A WISH FOR SKATEBOARDING IN GENERAL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I wish that skateboarding were more integrated into the cultural city scene and that skateboarders weren’t pushed to the fringes of cities. In my opinion, it clearly belongs in the cityscape. Skateboarding could be integrated into urban development in general, like in Denmark, for example, I’d love that. Otherwise, skateboarding is developing quite well. It’s become an Olympic discipline now, so more public money can go into promoting it, which means more skateboarders. In addition, during the pandemic period many people have rediscovered the simple things – the board and you, and that’s it.
Different DNA. Same Attitude.
These words sum up what this campaign is all about. Different brands with different backgrounds and different origins share the same attitude – towards customers, challenges and quality. Who would be better suited to embody the idea of a shared attitude than athletes from different sports? They all do different things and yet they are driven by the same will to improve in what they do. This analogy is at the heart of this campaign. Do you want to find out more about that?
