WHO ARE WE ?

JEAN BAPTISTE DE MÉO

Creator of the brand

Jean Baptiste Demeo marque Unite skate

“My first contact with skaterboarding was visual. At the age of eight, while i was watching a film showing a short scene where a skater was doing a flip, it was a real revelation ! I knew skateboarding would be a part of me forever.

It is a the age of sixteen, roughly, that all began to be more complicated on my side.

I felt i was different from my friends. Marseille, but especially bordeaux, allowed me to meet many skaters more open-minded that others who were not in judgment. It did’nt matter skin color, religion or sexual orientation.

In 2016, brian anderson (world champion of skate 1999) on the front page of thrasher reported his coming out. My idol was gay !”
