WATCH RYAN SHECKLER TALK ABOUT HIS CAREER
When Ryan Sheckler first burst onto the scene he was only a teenager. He was out there at the X Games looking like some skater’s kid, but he was competing right alongside them. In fact, Sheckler even was the star of an MTV reality show called Life Of Ryan, back when MTV cared about teenagers who weren’t moms. Now, Sheckler is 30, and he’s still skating. His accomplishments are myriad, and he has plenty to talk about with World of X Games for their video series Being.
It just feels fitting that a man who we became aware of when he was a kid thanks to the X Games is part of this video interview series. Sheckler has had an interesting career. It has to be weird to be famous when you’re so young, and to try and balance that with keeping your career going as an adult. What if he had been a flash in a pan? The mind reels. Sheckler seems to have it all in perspective, though. You can see that when you watch this video.
For a 16-year-old, Collins has been a successful skateboarder. He’s already a pro sponsored by Toy Machine, and he has a ton of potential. Unfortunately, all that promise was put on the shelf for a bit in 2020. Collins was injured pretty badly in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. Now, if you’ll let us put our stern parent hat on for a minute, we don’t know why a 16-year-old would be legally allowed to ride a motorcycle, and motorcycles are dangerous in general. Also, your music is too loud and you need to get a haircut, hippie! Alright, now that we’ve gotten that out of our system, let’s get to some better news. After four months of rehab, Collins has largely healed, and he’s back on his board.
Dew Tour caught up with Collins in the new episode of their series Aimless. This was purportedly his first day getting back to skating after his four months of rehabilitation. It was probably nice for him, and it is interesting to see him get back after it. Hey, he’s only 16. His career is all in front of him, and the potential is obvious. Let’s just hope he’s more careful about motorcycles going forward. Check out what Collins has to say to Dew Tour on this episode of Aimless in the video above.
