Revisit the career of one of the most accomplished street skaters to ever do it.
For context, Ryan Sheckler received his invitation to compete in the X Games at just 13 years old. He would go on to win gold in street. Since then, he has won gold 7 times in total during his X Games career.
The latest profile feature on the X Games series BEING, Ryan Sheckler's contributions to the sport and culture at large come into focus. It's important to note that 9, 10, 11, years old, Sheckler was already competing on a national level.
Featuring interview footage from the likes of Tony Hawk, Paul Rodriguez, and Danny Way, the feature digs into the meteoric rise of the skater and how he struggled to balance that fame being at odds with the culture of skating.
Proving that he was always far more than a television sensation or a brand ambassador, Sheckler used the negativity that engulfed his career early on to motivate him to become one of the most accomplished street skaters of all time.
