Check Out – Tyler Adams-Hawkins

I’ve known Tyler since he was a little grommet at the YMCA skatepark in Encinitas. As the years went by, not only could I see that Tyler had become an incredible transition skater, but he also had picked up confident street skills as well. The most incredible aspect about Tyler’s skateboarding is that he’s completely fearless and very confident with his abilities and consistency. If you take him to a spot, there’s no doubt that he’ll skate it or just destroy it. He’ll skate everything from vert ramps and transition to fourteen-stair handrails and big gaps. I’ve watched Tyler progress this far, and it makes me wonder how far he can take it. Be on the lookout for this kid—he’s off the charts.—Dana Shaw
