Insight: Frederik Kofoed & WIND UP TOYS Full Movie

Frederik Kofoed will catch your attention from far away already. Not only does he look like he is doing modeling for a living, he is also cruising around faster than the average and when he’s not having fun on blades himself he is focusing on filming to make sure the good times get captured. That’s also why we decided to introduce him here on Be-Mag. He has a video coming out. “Wind up toys” is a crew-love movie and captures the good times that the Copenhagen boys are having on a daily. The kind of movie that makes you realize that sometimes it’s really only about having fun with your good friends and that you maybe should put on your blades yourself more often again.
