With a rampant sense of humor and undeniable talent, it's easy to understand why this core skater frequents the covers of magazines and skate videos and was named Thrasher's Skater of the Year in 2003. Traveling the world to skate and take photos is his M.O. and he's been cliff jumping in Peru, climbing the Pyramids in Egypt, and shooting photos from Cuba to Panama, all since finishing 4th at XG 10.
He has also been the recipient of honors repeatedly from TransWorld Skateboarding: Rookie of the Year in 2002, Best Street in 2003, Reader's Choice in 2004, Skater of the Year 2007
Appleyard's had 12 mag covers in 16 years but stays humble and focused on his skating.
