The Black Spell Collective is our group of brand ambassadors who represent Black Spell online and a far. Our eclectic brand family include riders, artists, photographers, musicians, makers, influencers, content creators and the like. Over the last few weeks we have been introducing each of our newest ambassadors and catching up with our longer serving members of the community.
From Falkenberg, Sweden, this is Emil Varga. You can read his ambassador feature (and watch clips of him skating his local park!) below.
BLACK SPELL AMBASSADOR INTRODUCTION FEATURE
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Emil Varga and I’m a skateboarder from Falkenberg, Sweden. I grew up with my grandma but now I live with my girlfriend. I started to skate when I was about 8 years old and dont think I can quit.
How would you describe your style/attitude?
I would say I’m pretty laid back and don’t take things too seriously, if I don’t feel like I have to. My thoughts when it comes to clothes is that I want to keep it “simple and clean”.
What three words would your friends use to describe you?
Humorous, kind, and spontaneous.
How do you start your day?
I put on some music and get dressed.
How do you end your day?
Most likely im relaxing with my girlfriend.
What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
On the skateboard or spending some time with friends/girlfriend.
Who (or what) influences you?
Way too many people to name them all, but here are some: Dylan Rieder, Austyn Gillette, Erik Ellington, Bryan Herman, Andrew Reynolds, Mark Suciu. There are ofcourse the older local skaters I grew up watching: Anton, Kalle, and Oscar Pettersson, and all the rest.

What makes you tick/what drives you?
I don’t really know what makes me want to go and skate, I have been doing it for so long that it feels strange when I don’t do it. I love the feeling when you land a new trick that you have been working on for some time, or when you land the last trick in the line you have been trying to film for some time. I also like working on projects with friends, that can be a skatepark, building something or just working to achieve something.
What is it that attracted you to Black Spell?
I like the simple style of your clothes; it got a cool occult motive but its not too much. You also seem like cool guys that care about what you do.
What is your favourite Black Spell design or product?
The Tudor Shroom or Space Witch!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Smoking and singing in the shower (haha!)
Which one item can you not leave the house without?
My phone (for the music).
Name an irrational fear (if any!)
@swagfunk.inc on Instagram
Getting fat, losing my teeth and hair.
What’s one thing you are trying to make a habit of at the moment?
Working out, want to get back into shape.
What’s one thing you’re learning now? And why is it important?
Studying so I can get into university, want to get a job I want and can enjoy.
What was the last thing you saw which made you smile?
My girlfriend playing with our cat
