    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)
