This epic narrative is given form with a lively text written by Transworld SKATEboard’s Mackenzie Eisenhour. “Resumé” chronicles the tactics of Jérémie Daclin, as he launches Cliché skateboards in France in 1997 and pours his heart and soul into a start-up with no money, investors, or even employees. Daclin’s shoestring budget never held him back, as breath-taking tour imagery ranging from Athens, Greece, to New York City, to the island of Sardinia and Italy quickly makes clear.

Interviews, tales of camping in sewer tunnels, rental van tours, and home-cooked meals are all integral to the story of Resumé. This modus operandi at the heart of Cliché’s strategy culminates with the Gypsy Tours 1 & 2 — a skateboard “Survivor”-style challenge to team skaters, forced to test their mettle by traveling with no secured lodging on only 10 euros a day. More recently, Cliché has broken into the American market, just as Daclin dreamed, and now with the release of “Resume,” tackles the rest of the world too.

Jérémie Daclin
Jérémie Daclin, Cliché
In the summer of 1997, Jérémie Daclin launched Cliché Skateboards with little more then a Franc and a dream. In the decade and change since, Cliché hooked up some of the world’s best skate­boarders, put Europe’s biggest spots on the map, released several of the most critically acclaimed videos ever, and changed skateboarding’s geographic scope forever more.
