Bas Janssen: Welcome to éS!

bas release es

éS footwear strengthens its Dutch skateboard team with the addition of Bas Janssen. Bas doesn’t need to be introduced of course; he’s a well-known face in the European skateboard scene and a perfect addition to the team!

“We are super stoked to have Bas riding for éS! His skills speak for themselves! Together with the other Dutch éS team riders: Woody Hoogendijk and Manuel de Jong, and European teamrider Ricardo Paterno, we know éS is being represented in the Netherlands in the best way possible!” says Wilko Kuipers, team manager of éS Netherlands.

“I was looking for a way to promote myself, my sponsors and my skateboarding more and found out that with a good footwear sponsor I can do much more," says Bas. "éS is the footwear brand that fits me best and where I feel comfortable. éS has always been progressive when it comes to skateboard footwear and it’s technology. The G2 insoles I've already skated for three or four years now. But besides the product it’s about the team, skateboarders and the people behind the brand and that’s just a perfect fit!

Check out some footage of Bas during the 2008 ESC in Basel!

Bas also rides for Element, Independent, Vonzipper, Dakine, Basta hardware and Juhroen skate shop.
