Hi, my name is Ryan Sheckler. My discipline is skateboard street. My friends call meShecky. I was born on 30 December 1989 in San Clemente, USA. My special talent is pulling off tricks with perfect control, speed and fluidity. My philosophy of life is skate life 'til death. My favourite food is Pad Thai. My favourite music is Guns 'n' Roses and The Cure.


Ryan Sheckler has been earning the “SKATE LIFE” tattoo on his forearm since he first set foot on a skateboard. In 2003, at the age of 13, he was the youngest competitor ever to win X Games gold. He repeated the feat in 2008 and again in 2010. To date, Ryan has won the Action Sport Tour’s (AST) championship three times and almost countless more contests, from his California Amateur Skateboarding League (CASL) championship titles to the ISF Skateboarding World Championships in 2010.

He’s just as comfortable skating in made-for-TV competitions as he is throwing down in the streets, and he’s nabbed sick street footage around the world.

But he wants to prove that the skate life is about more than just skateboarding. In 2008, he partnered with Red Bull, Oakley, Etnies, Nixon, and other sponsors to create the Sheckler Foundation, funding enrichment programmes for children in underprivileged communities, medical research towards curing spinal cord injuries and childhood diseases, and programmes for injured action sports athletes.

With all of his achievements, when and how will Sheckler know that he’s achieved his ultimate goal of being one of the greatest skaters ever? “I want to make a huge contribution to skateboarding,” he says after thinking for a moment. “The only way I will know that I have achieved legendary status is when my peers say I have. There is no other way.”
