He had a breakthrough year in 2015 and he’s continued to shred throughout the course of 2016 with several mind melting video parts, a pro model shoe and a heap of magazine coverage all along the way.

Ryan Sheckler and the Sheckler Foundation joined Coping Mechanism at Parisite DIY Skatepark to celebrate the expansion of the first public skatepark in New Orleans’ history. It has taken Coping Mechanism two years to get Parisite DIY Skatepark legalized, but now it’s New Orleans’ first public skatepark – designed, built and run by skateboarders. Parisite DIY Skatepark was ready for its next build, but needed help with a crucial part of the skatepark: the coping. As the Sheckler Foundation’s 7th “Be the Change” beneficiary, Ryan Sheckler presented Parisite DIY Skatepark with support and a $10,000 financial grant to help implement quality steel coping and other metal work to create a public skatepark in New Orleans that will last decades.
Past “Be the Change” recipients include: The Port Gamble S’Klallam, Peach’s Neet Feet, The Ashley Wade Foundation, Hope for Carter, Gamerosity and Andrew Hale’s Road to Recovery.
