I’m sure you must know who Zach Lyons is by now. He is on his way to being a legend in the skate world. Please believe it. The first time I met Zach, he was on some next shit, so I put him down. I train with him all the time at Malcolm X Park. Zach will find the most obscure unskateable spot and turn it into his own playground. He has incredible pop because he weighs less than a newborn. I don’t think he sees things the way most people do, which makes him a very innovative skater. He rolls with PMA, so you know not to mess with him. Zach rules.-Chris Hall
