If you've been on social media at all today, you may have seen a bunch of skaters wishing Ryan Sheckler 'happy birthday'. We'd like to do the same here on Shred Social. Along with that, here are some of our absolute favorite skate parts and videos from the birthday man!
Let's go back in time for this first video. All the way back to Almost Round 3, where most of us were introduced to this shredder. His ollie to the street in this part amazes me to this day.
After his debut, full part, we all had to wait awhile for a new part to drop. Eventually, Oakley dropped his "Our Life" part.
Shortly after, Sheckler joined Plan B skateboards. The video starts with what i can only imagine was one of the best days of his life at a Thrasher contest. Watch the madness.
Fast forward to 2013 and Etnies releases "Ryan Sheckler 15 years". This is probably my favorite, as it goes through his life as a pro skater and before. (Let's skip over the MTV part.)
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't include his most recent part in the Plan B video. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a good video online, so you may have to pay for this one, but I promise you won't be disappointed. Even though we didn't get to see El Toro being backside flipped as promised, the video is still a testament to how good Sheckler has become over the years. Whatever your feeling are about him, you can't deny, this dude absolutely rips.
