My favorite pro skaters currently are Willy Manaloto Santos, Andrew Reynolds, and ZACK. These guys have been at the top of my list for at least 10 years or so because of their ability to stay active in skateboarding for so long. But numbers 4-10 is a WIDE OPEN field. Some guys stay in, while others are continually falling out because of the their inability to stay active. Maybe these unnamed skaters get caught up with acting and do not spend enough time dedicated to their true craft. Or perhaps some of these people fall into a perpetual routine of nonstop PARTYING and the debauchery which catches up with them. Moderate partying is cool and all if but they should take a page out of HALEY JOEL OSMENT’S book and be sure to not make the same mistakes.
Well I think Ryan Sheckler has been making all the right decisions lately and has LAUNCHED himself into my top 10 once again. He was in my top 10 for a while but someone close to him went off on me. But we have reconciled and all I associate Ryan with these days are his truly insane skateboarding. And after watching this nice chunky clip to promote his brand new ETNIES X PLAN B sneaker, I believe his status as a LAT34 top 10 skater has been solidified.
The new Etnies x Plan B Sheckler 6 LX 11.11.11 shoe is here! And this pair’s only available at CCS! Check the exclusive video of Ryan talking about all the features of the 6 LX on this very limited edition collaboration!
