NICOLAS POILLOT FLATSPOT X HOBBYIST COLLECTION

Released today is the Flatspot x Hobbyist collection, a deck and zine photographed by Nicolas Poillot and a special edition Flatspot 6-panel.
This is our second collaboration with the Paris based zine following the partnership with photographer Jennilee Marigomen on a cruiser shaped deck.
Hobbyist 09 is photographed by Nicolas Poillot, co-founder and photo editor of the publisher and fashion house Études Studio. He has photographed for AD Magazine, Nike, Roadie Magazine and Vice amongst many others, but Hobbyist 09 is all about his images and his inspiration. The Hobbyist zine and blog are literal in their motivation, focusing on hobbies ranging from skateboarding to gardening, documenting in photographs the heart of why the hobbies appeal so much.






** The deck pack is an edition of just thirty for the World **
