In 2019, Max Fritsche founded ‘the one and only skate shop in The Bahamas’: Turnschuh. Now he presents his first book about the store and the local crew around it – in Cologne.
Max is a friend since them old Sneaker Freaker days (check here) so I tried to keep up with his lovechild. And Turnschuh is alive, despite or maybe also because of the pandemic that has drained tourism in the islands.
Over the last two years, the store has become a meeting place for a creative crew who owns the now deserted streets of Nassau. The book is compiled from photos of skater friends and Max himself. There is also text, for which I was allowed to contribute a little editing.
And then I DJ the release party: This saturday, November 20th, the book is presented from 7-11 pm at the Greatlive in Cologne, and Hade and I will spin some Caribbean digs.
