From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Steve Caballero, (born November 8, 1964, San Jose, California), is a professional skateboarder.

Steve was born in the year of the dragon, hence the dragon graphics of his boards. He was born with scoliosis (curved spine.) Because of this condition, one of his neck glands grew larger than the other, so his head tilts to one side.

Caballero started skating at in 1976 at the age of 12. He was sponsored as an amateur by Powell Peralta in 1978 at the age of 15. He turned pro in 1980 at the Oasis Skatepark, Southern California during the Gold Cup series. He is a member of the Bones Brigade.

His current sponsors include Powell, Krux Trucks, Autobahn Wheels, and Vans.

His past sponsors include Tracker Trucks, Independent Trucks, and Bones Wheels.

He invented the Caballerial, around 1980, in the 10 ft. keyhole pool at Winchester Skatepark in Campbell, California. He also invented a variation, the Half-cab, and the frontside rock n' roll slide (now more commonly referred to as a frontside board slide).

He has been a member of several punk bands including The Faction, Odd Man Out, Shovelhead, and Soda.

He also collects toys, rides Motocross, and looks after his young daughter Kayla.

Caballero has been featured on the cover of Thrasher Magazine and several other publications, and he has toured as a skateboarder.
