adidas skateboarding team:
Being an integral part of adidas Skateboarding team since day one, Pieter has not only a creative mind but also the passion to grow skateboarding in South Africa. Skateboarding has taken him places he’d never dreamt of before and has given him the opportunity to work with people that share the same undying passion to skate. A friendly and open-minded person, who is easy to approach and always willing to do most things for the love of skateboarding.
Jansen van Staden:
Co-owner of Plankie Skateboards and adidas Skateboarding Team Rider, Jansen is a man with copious amounts of patience, understanding and respect for others. His love for skateboarding has fuelled by other love: photography. Wherever Jansen goes so does his camera allowing him to document what he loves.
Aged 26 and originally from Pretoria, Jansen now lives in Cape Town where you can catch him most days either skating between Vredehoek and the Cape Town CBD or sitting somewhere patiently waiting for that perfect moment to capture a timeless image.
A recent addition to the adidas Skateboarding Team in July 2012, it’s often said there’s too much going on in Yann’s mind to sometimes really understand what’s on his mind!
Hailing from Durban, Yann is described as a certified ‘Circus Ninja’ that has boundless energy when he’s on his skateboard, can entertain you with his rap lyrics, mind blowing skating transitions and seemingly never ending back flips.
Originally from Durban, Khulu has been floating around Cape Town for the last year or so. He became part of the adidas Skateboarding Team in early 2012, and already he’s become famous for being a party animal, a ladies man and a damn fine skateboarder too! Oh, and rumour has it that Khulu likes to look fresh on and off his skateboard and that taking 20 shirts on a weekend away is not an unusual occurrence for him!
