About Shafik Kadi

A native of Helsinki, Finland, Shafik Kadi wasted no time when he was offered work in Los Angeles, selling almost everything and flying out with just two suitcases to his name. In a city where the sunshine alone was enough to inspire him, the half-Finnish, half-Lebanese creative currently pairs working for Diamond Supply Co. skateboard supplies with generating unique content such as his basketball-inspired travel journal Out of Bounds. We spoke to him about creative life in Los Angeles and picked his brains on events, beaches, what inspires him, his favorite spots in LA, and where you'll find him enjoying a cold one.
