Bio

Ask any skateboarder or action sports junkie on the planet who Ryan Sheckler is and you’re sure to receive an array of different answers – and for good reason. A child prodigy turned professional skateboarder, action sports icon, teenage heartthrob, business owner, charity founder and TV star has made his name synonymous with skateboarding. What Sheckler accomplished before his Twenties most could only dream of accomplishing in a lifetime.

Now 23, Ryan’s portfolio is no less impressive. While he’s still involved with dozens of different ventures, it’s still his jaw-dropping skills in the park and on the street which have won the respect of pros old enough to be his father, while his big green eyes have attracted the adulation of girls too young to get a driver’s license. He’s a phenom in every sense of the word. Yet, the guy is ever-focused on his future and that of his sport. “Shecks” wants to go down in the record books as one of the greatest and most recognizable skaters who ever lived—and he’s on path to doing just that with the contest results, the banger video parts and just Ryan being Ryan.
