A running achievement in the skateboard world is making it to one of Ryan Sheckler’s legendary house parties; he’s not averse to having a good time and sharing it with everybody as well. On tour he’s the life of the party and keeps everyone socially lubricated, yet he's absolutely ready the next morning to handle his business stacking photos and clips. Sheckler is a self-made man in that all-American way. He’s a child-skate-star turned reality star turned one of the hands-down gnarliest dudes on a board. He’s the only philanthropist in the world who is capable of 360 flipping 16 stairs (The Sheckler Foundation was founded in 2008) and is a worldwide icon who manages to be a teen heartthrob to boot. He kills it on the contest circuit in his free time. He keeps his plate decidedly full.
