We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Fries Taillieu, he’d just got back from the Eagle SG tour promoting his and Charles Collet’s new colourways of the Eagle SG. Due to his laptop being stolen just over a month ago this interview took a little longer than hoped, but thanks to Fries resourcefulness we got it done.
As you’ll see from his answers Fries is a very hardworking, determined and most importantly down to earth guy with a bright future ahead of him.

So you’ve just been on the road with Globe, was there a best stop of the promo tour?
There wasn’t really a best stop, every stop was really cool. I would say Belgium was definitely more of a plus for me because it’s my home turf. Definitely the stop at Rampaffairs was really cool as it’s the skatepark I grew up in, they threw a party and everybody was there, my family, my girlfriend, my friends. So that was really fun for me, all the others were also really welcoming and super cool. Every stop was awesome.
What was your favourite spot you guys got to skate?
The best spot was the one we skated in Tours, this green handrail, maybe a 10 or 12 stair and it was perfect. That was a really fun session. We also had this little quarter pipe thing in Limoges, that was a really fond memory. It was the first stop of the tour and the whole local crew came skating with us, so another fun session, it was super cool.
