Ronnie’s cousin Gian got them into skateboarding when they were younger, but at the time they were way more into basketball. “I was a poser. I used to pretend that I skated in high school. People asked me about tricks and I would be like ‘oh, yeah, that one,’ so then I decided to pick it up for real.” Around 19 they really started getting into skating and that’s been a huge part of their life ever since.
KRUX Brand Manager Alex White just wrapped up the work week with a major email mic drop, announcing she has hired Kristin Ebeling as Team Manager.

Kristin, KEBS, Ebelinger, Kebeling, whatever you call her, KEBelinger is not only a sick skater, she’s a legit-ass human (def not a cyborg.) At only 21, she starred on an episode of MTV’s “True Life; I’m Going to Skatopia,” one of the mainstream’s first glimpses of this loco femme skate lyfe.
