Ryan Sheckler has been skating with Oakley since he was seven-years-old.
Let that settle in for a minute, and then think about what you were doing at seven.
The fact that this guy had a big time sponsor at the age of seven is absolutely tremendous in my opinion, but when I had a chance to talk to him about his experiences as a skater and his plans for the future, I realized that there is more than just his poise on the board that makes him impressive.
The thing about having success at such an early age is that many people have a tendency to let it get to their heads. They end up forgetting where they came from, forgetting the people that got them to where they are and often times, forgetting the very people that gave them the shot.
In the case of Ryan Sheckler, that could not be any further from the truth.
