The Ben Raemers Foundation

In May 2019, at the age of 29, professional skateboarder Ben Raemers took his own life.
His passion for life and skateboarding has always been contagious. Ben will be remembered by all as a loving son, brother, friend and inspiration.

Help us to continue his legacy by improving mental health and wellbeing in the skateboarding community. The Ben Raemers Foundation seeks to raise awareness around the tools, techniques and skills that can be used within the community to address issues surrounding mental health and suicide.

The Foundation aims to bring awareness of mental health issues and suicide to the forefront.
It wants to end the stigma and burden that so often clouds these issues, in memory of an absolute legend that we have lost.

    BLK.MARK's "Disorder" Video
    This all-terrain crusade goes from Spain to France and beyond with double-set destruction and idyllic DIY sessions. Nassim Lachaub, Doobie, Eniz, Harry Lintell and their crew own the streets while one of the last glorious inverts from Ben Raemers rounds out the edit perfectly. Appreciate the project and grab a zine.

    From the streets of San Jose comes a full-length of rare achievement. Crisp VX colors, appearances from Tiltmode royalty, Ben Raemers footy and a hectic ender part from Peter Raffin make it a hell of a watch. This will start your skate day off right.

    For far too long, people have hidden the pain of issues such as anxiety and depression. Thank you, Nick Jensen, for sharing your experiences and helping to break the stigmas associated with mental health. BIG LOVE.
