How old are you?
I’m 16.
Where are you from?
I’m from Aix-en-Provence, in the south of France.
When and how did you start skateboarding?
At 11, I moved to a little city named Vitrolles. There was a tiny skatepark in my new neighborhood, like, 200m away from my new house. It was time for me to start and I never stopped since!
What’s your favorite trick?
I would say Treflip.
Who’s your favorite skater?
Definitely Shane O’Neil! He’s so fluid, so smooth…
What’s your favorite spot you ever skated?
MACBA, Barcelona.
And what’s the skate spot you never skated but dream about?
Any of the big US spots I see everytime I watch a vid…
What’s your favorite thing in skateboarding?
Riding with friends, this is basically the best thing in skateboarding.
And what do you hate the most in skateboarding ?
Scooters in skateparks, France’s full of that. Oh, and these guys who buy a board to sit on it… I don’t get it.
How did you first hear about Krak and the App ?
I discovered Krak on Instagram, via a friend’s like or something like that.
While talking about Instagram, what’s yours?
@robknowskate
Alright Robin, any shoutouts?
Thanks mom, thanks skateboarding.

Robin rides for himself but for Organic Clothing too.

How old are you?
I just turned 17.
Where are you from?
I’m from Le Havre, France.
When and how did you start skateboarding?
I think I really started when I was 8. My brother was skateboarding since quite a long time so one day I decided to try. Now it’s been 10 years on my board and I don’t plan to stop.
What’s your favorite trick?
I wouldn’t say I have a favorite trick… I like doing hardflip, does it count?
Who’s your favorite skater?
Probably Curren Caples. He’s versatile. Man can rip bowl and park as well as the dirtiest street spot. I really like his style though.
Is there a spot that you never skated but dream about?
I never went to Barcelona but it seems to be the perfect place to skate.
What’s your favorite thing in skateboarding?
Traveling with a sponsor or for a contest. There’s always a crazy atmosphere, you meet new people and above all, you discover new spots!
What do you hate the most in skateboarding?
The trendy aspect of it. Like, people buying boards but not being interested in the culture… It’s pointless to me.
How did you first hear about Krak and the App ?
Some friends already were on the app, I liked the idea so I joined!
Any other social account other than our app where people can see more of you?
Check me on Insta.
Shoutouts?
Everyone who supports me and my sponsors: Jart Skateboards, DC shoes, GoPro, Stance, New Era, XSories, Industrees, Sport maximum.

How old are you?
19.
Where are you from?
I’m from Big Bear California, but I’m now living in Rancho Cucamonga California.
When and how did you start skateboarding?
I started skating when I was 9. I got inspired by growing up watching my neighbors do it all the time. And the steez they put into their tricks, man, I had to try.
What’s your favorite trick?
Casper flip and melon.
Who’s your favorite skater?
Definitely Wes Kremer. Because he has the indefinite steez. Also Chris Haslam just because he’s the rawest dude out there even in his age and day.
Do you have any favorite skate spot?
It’s a local secret spot out here in California called Badlands.
And what is the spot you never skated but dream about?
I’d love to travel to the east coast and skate any spots out there, really.
What’s your favorite thing in skateboarding?
What I love the most about skateboarding is how individualistic it is and how no skater is the same yet it brings every culture together.
The thing you hate the most in skateboarding?
I don’t really like how mainstream culture is slowly changing what skateboarding is about and represents.
How did you first hear about Krak and the app?
I heard about Krak when you guys contacted me right after I did the fifteen boards!
That 15 decks ollie… How many tries did you need to land it?
It took me first try!
Damn. Do you have any social account so we won’t miss your next epic stuff?
Yeah sure, you can find me on the Krak app, just search my name. I’m on Instagram too: @jeremiah_belledin
Do you film longer vids  or just short clips from time to time? Any part on the internet?
Not really filming for a part, just stacking clips with the homies for the little daily edits we throw together.
Alright Jemeriah, any shoutouts?
Shout out to (HyClass) clothing!! And Krak!!
