While on location at Windells Camp I had the opportunity to go out and shoot some photos with the skate campers for a day. àI was able to sift through the impressive skaters and single out an interesting specimen by the name of Jake Percle. àI was so impressed by his talent and intrigued by his modesty I thought I would grab a quick rider profile from him.

How Old are you?

16 year Old

How did you get into skateboarding, how old were you when you started?

I saw some skate videos in a local skate shop and thought it looked fun so i got a skateboard. àI started skateboarding when i was about 12.

Where are you from, where do you live now?

I come from Houston, Texas but I live in the south of France

What else do you do besides skateboarding?

Go to the mountains and go skiing with my sister and friends. àSchool also takes up a lot of my time.

Whats your favorite park or street?

My favorite street spot is about a 45 minute drive away from my house but it is totally worth it. àIt is called Place Massena and has perfect curbs and a nice 7 set (located in Nice, France).

How did you end up at Windells?

I really wanted to go to a skate camp and I found out about a couple but Windells seemed like the more relaxed one.
