Proper switch flip from Ryan
Just so y'all are in the know, Ryan Sheckler placed fourth in X Games Skateboard Street earlier today.
Coming out of his first two runs, Ryan was in the lead and the only skater with a flawless run for that portion of the contest. Shortly after, in the handrail jam session, Ryan took a nasty slam on a back smith that left him being carried off the course by paramedics.

After a few moments of limping and catching his breath, somehow Sheck shook it off and got back in the jam, landing the back smith that took him out originally and rifling off tricks down the rail like no one's business.
In the final jam session of the day (launch ramp to gap of bushes) Sheckler busted full cabs, switch flips and proper frontside flips with ease.
Congrats, Ryan, not only for being a trooper but for placing high and making etnies proud!
Stay tuned for up-to-the-minute coverage of the etnies team at X Games 11.
