Hi, my name is Jost Arens. My discipline is skateboarding. I was born on 20 June 1997 in Warendorf, Germany.


Jost hails from Warendorf, Germany, and started skateboarding in 2007, at the mere age of 10. By the time he was 14, he had already scooped up his first sponsor.

In 2011, he finished third at the Telekom Extreme Playgrounds in Berlin – one of his best results so far – and took a German Amateur Championship title to boot. With such a busy lifestyle, you'd think he'd have to leave his studies behind. However, he manages to pursue his skateboarding career while keeping everything under control in school.

When he's not tearing up the contest scene (or studying hard), Jost spends his time shooting video clips with his friends and teammates. The video part he knocked out for Converse shows just how well-rounded a street skater he has become.  

As featured in our Luxembourg Leisure and Checkmates edit lately, Jost is quickly demonstrating he has the power to become one of Europe's leading hammer merchants for the foreseeable future.
