At the questionably old age of 21, Ryan Pearce is without a doubt the most talented skateboarder in the Midwest. Growing up in Malto’s hometown of Kansas City, RP is the slightly dirtier yet just as talented version of the “mini barge.” With the ability to wreck fools on any terrain, RP earned himself the last part in KC’s most badass shop’s first badass video, Escapist’s <i>Fourteen Deep</i>, which basically means he is the sh-t.
