This past weekend SE student Ryan Thompson made 1st place at the "Hometown Heroes" contest at Southside... This qualified him for the finals at the X-Games in July! I just found this professional video of him skating the contest... (He's wearing a black shirt in this) The Next Day with a heat index outside of 113 degrees, and some fierce competition, Ryan placed 2nd in the Zumiez "Best foot forward" contest. Here's some more great footage. He's wearing a Tan shirt in this one. (they accidentally named him Adam in this)
Skateboarding Explained student Ryan Thompson just won the "Hometown Heroes" contest at Southside skatepark! This qualified him for the X-Games in July! (He's only 13)
Ryan also recently won:
- Line King at Southside
- Maloof Money Cup am Qualifier (online)
- Wild in The Parks at Southside
- Gatorade Free Flow at Southside
He also just got sponsored by Lakai footwear (flow), and Ollie Pop gum. He also rides for Plan B (flow), and Tavik clothing.
When Ryan was 6 I taught him the Exact System and Techniques in Skateboarding Explained: The Instructional DVD. When he was 12 he got the DVD and it helped him learn fs flips, 360 flips, and understand the mechanics of riding a skateboard on the deepest level... I continue to work with him to develop his skill to this day... Now Look At Him! (watch his SE testimonial video above)
