Ronnie Sandoval


THE UNOFFICAL MAYOR OF SAN PEDRO’S CHANNEL STREET PARK MAKES ANY DOUBLE BLACK DIAMOND TERRAIN LOOK LIKE A BUNNY SLOPE WITH HIS NATURALLY SMOOTH FLOW & UNCANNY ABILITY TO CREATE LINES WHERE THERE ARE NONE.

The very first time Ronnie Sandoval ever stepped on a skateboard he hit a crack and ate it straight to his face. It seems as if he created an unspoken rule against falling that day because seeing him stack these days is a rarity. Now Ronnie looks as if he was born on a skateboard; watching him simply carve is a work of art. It would only make sense that one of the most stylish and artistic skateboarders in history, Mark Gonzales, would take notice and tap Ronnie to be the guy to take Krooked Skateboards into the future. We can relate. Once we started seeing Ronnie rip the Vans Park Series, first hand, with his own brand of tricks mixed with classic stiff-armed inverts we knew immediately he was a perfect fit for the Vans family.
