Jeremie Daclin should be a familiar name by now. He was the guy responsible for putting European skateboarding on the map when he launched Cliché. Since that’s wrapped up, what’s next for the slappy enthusiast from Lyon? A truck company dedicated to curb skating of course. We’re excited to introduce you to Film Trucks.
FILM was originally created in 2000 as Cliché Skateboards’ sister company. Today, Film Trucks is reborn—rising from its ashes with unique and original designs. Film Trucks are made to carve, built for slappies, grinding pool copping and having fun on any DIY obstacles.
From the man that just keeps giving to skateboarding, here are Jeremie Daclin’s Slappy Top Five’s…
1 – The Fellows Union Curb Club (LA Crew with Chris Pastras, CurbKiller, Scott Herskovitz, Abe Bethel, Tim Olson, Jason Hernandez and more).
2 – Lance Mountain and Neil Blender in the “Ban This” video.
3 – Jon Lucero because he invented them.
4 – Jason Adams The Kid.
5 – Everyone who waxes a curb and makes it skateable.
1 – Get your best friends together for the best slappy sessions.
2 – Loosen your trucks!
3 – Make sure the curb slides. If it doesn’t, wax it!
4 – Frontside or backside, everyone has their favorite side.
5 – Make some noise (with your trucks… or yell at your friends).
1 – In front of your house.
2 – Venice USA because it was born there.
3 – USA in general because of the red curbs.
4 – Hardware stores because you always need cement or paint to fix the spot.
5 – Venice Lyon during my lunch breaks.
