Lenin, the owner of El Mijosk8, arrived in Barcelona to pursue his dream of combining his love for skating and creating with making a living. He set out to design, make and sell his boards to other people who shared his passion. Working in a serigraphy workshop gave him the opportunity to develop his work. He began cutting out boards in different shapes and designs as well as working on other small projects; such as a lowrider bike and furniture made from broken skate boards. His skills and techniques have enabled him to expand and invent new, unique and personalised designs for all the El Mijosk8 boards. His motto has always been “If you don’t risk anything there will be no progress”.
The El Mijosk8 show room is located in Poble Sec. They also repair broken skateboards.
Decks start from €40 and are available at www.elmijosk8.com.
