It’s safe to call him the Golden Child at this point. The most searched skater for three years in a row. After joining Nike on the first of the year, Sean kept it hot at Street League and Tampa, went up against Jimmy Carlin in Skate Nerd, hit the beach with Nike, and Florida with Fourstar. He helped put out his hometown’s shop video, kept the fashionistas on their toes in Milan, and he’s even available for weddings. A Pretty Sweet year for the King Of Kansas City. His Girl part was the cherry on top.
