Doesn’t it seem like the skateboarders of tomorrow are soured by annoying parents trying to “market” their kids to be the next Sheckler? Well there’s one kid who seems to buck that trend—a true skater who actually cares about the tricks he does and how he does them. Tyler Bledsoe is a diamond in the rough. Quiet, humble, and polite, Tyler is a team manager’s dream. And to top it all off, he has style unequaled by anyone his age.—Ryan Dewitt
