A morning with Frenchy

You know those kids that are around when your growing up? The ones that seem to be good at everything they try….That's this kid. Meet Andre 'Frenchy' Kauffman, one of our Deus shop groms.
He's always up to something when he's here, whether it be fixing a ding in his surfboard or trying to perfect a trick on his fixed gear. I have shot photos of him both in the water and on his bicycle…But never got round to shooting him skating. He called me up in the early hours of this morning and asked if I wanted to take some photos of him at 'Motion' skate-park a bit later…I agreed in my groggy state, jumped on the bike and cruised down. I'd never seen him skate before, so I didn't know what to expect, after about 10 minutes of him tearing up the boxes and quarter pipes it was evident… This kid rips! It was a fun morning at the park, there was hardly anyone about, so Frenchy has his reign over whatever he pleased….Next week's stop, Globe skate-park for some bowl action! Yeww!
