Lodge Guest, Nils Salinder
Where do you currently live and where are you from ?
Well son… I’m a immigrant in my own countries. Born and raised in Spain with a Swedish dad and Brazilian mum. With double nationalities and the Swedish one upfront.
Tell us a little bit about your past ?
I trouble maker. But in a cute way. Always playing around and mum at the same time shouting at me. But always with a good heart. Never meant to made bad to people. I like to make fun of situations. Later on in the teenage I got depressed by my parents divorced and that kept me doing idiotic stuff. I always like to make go against waterfall. I started developed more love to different types of art. I did play music and claim paint. But at that time I started to skate, do graffiti and parkour. That made me in the path I’m today.
Why skateboarding ? How did it start for you ?
Depression. I like to do stuff on my own and mean while I did selfdefense sport I always like to be free and do not have others to mark you development or your progress. Skate is only about you, your guts to make it done and doing it. For me it was also a way to go away from reality and to throw me in to my own world of meditation.

My days look like 30 h each one of them and I call it the bohemian life. I sleep when I need I eat when I do also need it and the same with the rest. I love to skate paint and do music so that is what I do. Some times I even do not go home beco use I stay to early in the morning in the studio making music and when the sun wakes up I feel hoped to skate or paint some stuff I’m always involved in some kind of project.
