Pintodd crew

You may have noticed them in the app: The Pintodd crew is one of the most famous crew and keeps exciting us with their vids and pics. Based in Lyon (France) often rippin’ HDV (understand here« Hotel de Ville » iconic spot) they are hungry enough to krak the world.

“Yo les chicken dips! Can you explain the name of your crew.

Felix : so we were just some friends hangin out together some times to hit the streets. During one of these sesh, we just tripped on the word “pintade” that means “guinea fowl” in french. The following evening, I proposed them to create a team, a crew, and we choose the name “Pintodd” cause it sounds like “pintade”, but is a bit different. The double ‘d’ at the end is much better, it sounds better. So in fact, we are the ‘GuineaFowl Crew‘ haha!

“Who are you, where did you met?

Enzo : first, we are French, we are ‘lyonnais’ (from Lyon). We’re skateboarders who just skate and laugh out loud. We all met in HdV (hotel de ville) and progressively we’ve been skating together.

“Do you have a motto? Something core to Pintodd crew?

‘Fuck da police!’ haha

Who’s the most funny in the crew?

Tibo: I guess the most funny is Harry, cause he’s always doing shit, talking shit.

(translation “My new GoPro”)

– The most talented?

David: ME
Harry: No it’s me!
Aurelien: Shut up guyz, you all know I am the best! Haha
Enzo: There is no real comparison between us, and that’s true: we all know the best is Aurelien. He progresses so fast that’s incredible.

– The most fucked-up?

Felix: Harry

-The chicks addict?

Haha make your own idea

tibo enzo

“Any favorite spot in Lyon (after HDV of course)?

David: We often skate in X-Rousse or in Confluence.

“Any annecdote about a skate sesh?

Aurelien: We have always funny bails but we remember this sesh in a lil park in Lyon (Blandan): skate friends and sun was the perfect combo, we don’t need anything else!

(translation: “Max doesn’t like cheap lemonade”)

“Do you have sponsors?

Tibo: except Aurélien, none of us have sponsors, but some are doing the best to search one. Video coming soon 😉

“Where can we find ya?

KRAK OF COURSE and also in HdV ! Enjoy your day, go hit the streets and FUCK DA POLICE!

Spot

West L.A. Courthouse

Thanks to Kev and Roy for the vid’.

The revival of a legendary spot

Good things are going on in L.A. and the reopening of the West LA Courthouse past July is one of them. During the late 90’s this street spot became really popular among skaters. Locals and pros were enjoying the multitude of ledges, empty fountain, four stair set and stage. Alec Beck, Aaron Snyder and the Stoner Skatepark Association were instrumental in making the Courthouse a legal skate spot again. They approached the city and Nike SB to make it all happen. So Nike took the occasion of the “Go Skateboarding Day” to restorate and re-opened to public this iconic spot.

Nike Opening past July 25, 2014.

What the Homies say about it…

Brent Strittmater
“First thing that comes to mind is the perfect blue ledges there that the city actually made legal to skate and second… I don’t want to ever be there for any other reason besides skating haha”

Kevin Wisleder
“I picture it as the Nike spot for technical skaters who like to film ledge lines.”

App

Into the app – vol 1

At Krak we’re deep believers in Design. Isn’t it awesome to have a clear and simple app for skateboarding pictures and videos? We truly aim at offering you the best experience possible so we have been working hard on new features that totally transform our world into an amazing playground for skateboarders.

#1 Explore

You may have noticed a new “explore sign” on the home page. This is the most exciting feature ever! Go find out new spots and identify clearly if it is street, park, shop or private spot thanks to their pictograms. You are now able to check a spot and vizualise real pictures shot by the Krak community. This is powerful and priceless. But wait ? Yeah the app is free!

#2 Add favorite spots to your Wishlist

We all dream of skating golden spots like West LA Court House, Venice Skatepark, Stoner Plaza, Republique…but even more to find the sickest spot ever downtown. Timing here is everything but Krak has a solution for you: Create a wishlist and save the spots you wanna krak later!

  • Go to Menu > Wishlist
  • Create a new wishlist by giving it a name and adding a caption
  • Now you can just save any spot you find on the app.

Thinking of riding some ledges after school/work?
The app locates all the  spots around you, you can easily identify the street spots and add them to your wishlist.

No worries, just save it for later.

You asked, we did.

#3 Create your Crew

Clearly, this is your area! You build your own crew, include your homies and show to the world how cool it is.

Make the most of it in 3 simple steps :

#4 KRAK IN!

Last but not least, you can now shout out loud what spot you are riding at the moment thanks to the KRAK IN feature. As soon as you kraked in, a message will be displayed on your feed. Easy to invite homies to join for a skate session.
