  8. This is soo sick. Etnies watch out for my name, when you guys bring the Etnies team for the Maloof Money Cup in Kimberley, South Africa in 2011. I hope to be competing as an AM. I stay in Port Elizabeth, SOuth Africa. I love Etnies. Etnies must open a south african branch, so SA also gets its skate team etc. Then Etnies USA, EU and SA may go on a huge world tour!!! Think of it. I own 2 pairs of Etnies. Great skate shoe well done.

  15. Hey Adam, just because somebody is good at something doesn't make them any less of an anal surfing punk bitch!

    Turd Fergison
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  16. Hey Turd, you watch the stupid tv show, you watch his dew tour wins, you see his photos in mags, so you think you know enough about someone to call them a ... something about anal sex right? You probably have those thoughts rolling through your mind all day...

    Sawtooth
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  17. My point is You probably know less about him than you do about the identity of the mentally challenged homeless guy that you forces you to call him daddy. I mean, he really is your dad, but he prefers daddy when your on your knees. Douche bag.

  28. i think ryan is a fag, no im not a homosexual i dont know why you guys think calling mr redbull, children diabetes, a fag makes other people gay. maybe if you werent on his nuts you would see that there are actually other skaters who dont have gay tv shows but could. tim o connor for example has had a lot of offers from mtv, but he doesnt like them so he doesnt do them, fuck money, love skate

  40. Come on Ryan...of all the things you mentioned above, "buying another dog" before you die is dumb as all hell.
    Considering that this state alone puts down (kills) more than 1/2 a million dogs and cats each year, one would think you'd possess the understanding to go to the no-kill shelter in San Clemente and adopt a dog or get one from a rescue.
    Peep Petfinder homie!

  51. So what if he sold out. He drives an F430, get more chicks than all you loser haters combined, has enough money to take care of his current and future family, and is using his fame to help others. He inspires young people around the world to skate and is an amazing skateboarder!

    Posted: 3 years ago,
  52. You've got good style dude, and your dreams come true...but don't you think that TV show about yourself isn't too much? Be a skater or a poser...like Jeremy Rogers(with his "Rap career")...chose wisely!

    stan
    Posted: 3 years ago,
  79. Ryan Sheckler is a money-loving poser. When he was like 13, and he just went pro, he was amazing. But as soon as Life of Ryan came up, he just became an asshole. Ryan Sheckler is gay. I don't say that out of jealously like Oakley says, I say it cuz it's true.

  90. Ryan, I like how most of the people I talk to are like "Ryan Sheckler is stupid" or "He sucks", and you just seem like a chill guy who likes to skate, and have fun. You are one of the best skaters out there, no doubt about it, and I'm sick of what others think. Keep on rippin'. I'm so stoked to see 'Super Future'. By the way, I wouldnt think you would be a guy who likes Mario Cart? Aha.

  94. Shecks is the fucking MAN. Backside flippin off roofs when he was 3 feet tall. Anyone that hates on him just needs to mind their own business, and focus on their own life. No need to get all in someone you have never met's business, that isn't gonna do any good for you or for anyone else.
