in the spring of 2005, I was skating in Central Station alone, as often was the case at the time. One afternoon a group of foreign bladers came out of the subway and I went to meet them super enthusiastic and we skated together all afternoon. I didn’t know anything about them for a long time until (after seeing Delfon Dio and Jo Zenk’s last edit at Athens) I decided to interview for Blading Chats Nick who, to my surprise, turned out to be the blader I knew 15 years ago. Unbelievable!!
Nick is one of the mainstays of the Greek scene, with him we talked about the most envied spot of this quarantine, the very famous Athens Blade House, what it means to tour with some of the best bladers in the world, to host one of the most important events of the scene at, literally, his own home and how he manages to manage his professional career as a DoP and cinematographer.
