Ryan Sheckler

At XG 2003, Ryan Sheckler (13 at the time) became the youngest athlete ever to win XG gold, which he did in SKB Park. While Ryan struggled at XG 2004 with the new street format, he still rules at park contests, and won the first Dew Action Sports Tour stop (Louisville, June 2005) which was a similar format to XG 2004. For 15-year old Sheckler, however, it's the change in sponsorship from World Industries to the core company Almost that is transitioning him into a core media skater. His first major video part came out in fall 2004 in the Almost Round 3 video. In 2003, (at the age of 13 and weighing in at less than a hundred pounds) Ryan became the youngest skateboarder to win gold at XG. He also swept the entire skateboarding comp scene, winning Gravity Games, SCJ, VTC overall, WCS North American Street overall and WCS World Street overall. Since XG '03, he's appeared in Sports Illustrated For Kids, put in an appearance (with Tony Hawk) on Teen Nickelodeon, filmed for his part in the new Almost video and traveled to Spain, Australia, and Canada. In the fall ('04), Ryan will start his freshman year at San Clemente High School.

Ryan has a very good style of skateboarding, and even has a signture move. The "Shecklair", as it is known, is a combination of a Kickflip and a Stiffy (an Indy air with the legs fully extended.) His sponsers include: almost, etnies, Kicker, Volcom, Tensor, nixon, Oakley, SoBe, NiNja, CCS, alpinestars, classic honda and Throttle Junkie.
