Don't let these simple mannerisms fool you, this softly spoken Brit wields a powerful stick. Ben Raemers's ascent through the ranks, although swift, comes as no-surprise to the folks of the ‘green and pleasant land’. Like the youthful sap rising swiftly through the oaky trunk of British skateboarding; his boundless enthusiasm and positivity breathe life into every trip he embarks on. Ben has more than proved his worth on numerous occasions over the years and all the notches he's been slowly carving into everything he skates have not gone un-noticed. In 2009 he began to reap the rewards and he and his skateboard finally began to make their way around the world, for free.
A 100% legitimate ‘good-guy’ backed up by some of the most consistent skateboarding-power that the UK has ever produced. We can only hope you all get the chance to see and skate with Ben at some point soon. It is an honor to have him on board.

After four months of preparations the Emerica x Altamont concept store in the basement of iconic London based skate shop Slam City Skates is now open. You can now check out the largest selection of Emerica and Altamont products available under one roof in Europe. And if you’re tired from strolling around in London for a day, you can always have a rest on the Victorian chaise lounge in the basement.
