During a road trip out to David Reyes’s hometown of Denver, Colorado, the guys take time off to shoot guns with the Dagger 8 Armory crew. It’s a full day in the van, but when you have skaters hitting spots, doing what they love, you can bet it’s going to be a good time!
Ryan Sheckler and David Reyes decide to take Kane Sheckler on the road with them. The guys meet at Ryan’s indoor park to skate and watch Ryan’s other brother Shane get a bit loose on his motorcycle. Then they hit the road to Arizona where they skate and surf with Jet and Jagger Eaton at the same spot where Ryan filmed for Red Bull Perspective.
Stay tuned for more action with Ryan Sheckler and crew in Ep. 8 dropping Thursday, November 19.

Conceptualized by Ryan Sheckler, Hart Lines is a newly developed street skateboarding competition featuring an all-new contest format featuring two lines with its own unique set of skateable elements. The course at Hart Plaza incorporated a mix of existing rails, ledges, and stairs with additional features built by CA Rampworks. Each skater had three runs on the course, one on each of the two designated “lines,” and a third on the line of their choice.
Curren’s gap to frontside nose grind put him in high numbers and the chase was on from there on out. $35k and a bitchin’ new American made car was all his for the taking when the event clock had reached its end. Congrats Curren!

In addition to the payouts for the Top 8 competitors, Ryan Sheckler handed out $2,000 for the “Sheckler’s Got Hart” award to Leo Romero for the skater he deemed that showed the most heart throughout the competition. Romero won the award because despite taking a few nasty falls on qualifier day, he managed to complete every run without holding back on the difficulty of his tricks. Felipe Gustavo also received $2,000 for landing the best switch trick of the event as part of the “Make The Switch” award powered by Pennzoil. Gustavo landed a switch frontside flip over the 10-stair rail to earn the added money.
The boys at the Boardr ran a solid show in Detroit and have a recap for you with captioned photos and more.
