Blade Check: Evert Lubja

If it is important to emphasize on one’s smile, it is because it does say a lot about an indivual’s mindset and personality indeed. And when it comes to Estonia’s very own Evert Lubja, his smile not only accurately sums up his positive character but also how welcoming the local blading scene is as a whole. Further evidence to back up that statement can be seen in Rene Lutterus‘ full-length video Workoholics, which was conveniently released online just a few hours ago!

Evert’s opening section is without a doubt one of the highlights of the video, and seeing how much this smiling man loves to blade, it doesn’t really come as a surprise either! Shredding hard, but also attending as many events as possible, organizing contests in Estonia, and even traveling to the US last year, the Remz and Ground Control team rider is truly active on and off the blades: high time we catch up with Evert and take a look behind the smile!
