Fridtjof Tischendorf is probably one of your favourite riders right now, chances are you just know him better as Fridge. He’s one of the infamous Lobster Six Pack, alongside Halldor and Eiki Helgason, Sparrow Knox, Frank Bourgeios and Colin Wilson. The Norwegian ripper has been making his mark across the comp circuit for years, not only for his ballsy and dauntless riding, but for his signature backpack and flowing blonde locks.
As a young rider coming out of Norway it’s gotta be hard as hell to make a name for yourself amongst the myriad of insanely talented riders who are your teammates, but Fridge has managed to do just that. His loose attitude and ability to make even the most simple tricks look stylish as hell has cemented him as ‘The Next Big Thing’.
He’s been going viral all over the ‘gram with his knuckle antics, and made history at the X Games by winning their first ever ‘Knuckle Huck’ jam contest this year. Considering he was up against some of the heaviest hitters in the world, including Sage Kotsenburg and Red Gerrard, it just shows how talented big Fridge is. Knuckle manoeuvres have been growing in popularity recently, partly due to Norwegian wunderkind Markus Kleveland and partly because they’re so shit hot to watch.
