Kyle Walker

OKLAHOMA'S OWN KYLE WALKER, A.K.A. KWALKS, HAS BEEN KILLING EVERYTHING IN HIS PATH EARNING HIM THE COVETED THRASHER SKATER OF THE YEAR AWARD IN 2016. 

Over the years we've been lucky enough to watch Kyle's progression first-hand from traveling with him all over the world for Propeller and No Other Way. From winning every demo in the Midwest to shutting down any handrail put in front of him including the longest kicker ever, KWalks has proven he's got the tools to change the way we view skateboarding. He's a short, squat beast with quick feet and the perfect center of balance. His recent relocation to Long Beach -- and the way his frequent flyer miles are adding up from Vans filming trips -- assures us that you'll be seeing a lot more of this SOTY in the near future. After witnessing his total destruction of spots in the Vans skate video, Propeller, we're honored to add him to our Vans Signature Pro roster.  

Interview

WHAT'S THE BEST TRIP YOU'VE EVER BEEN ON?

The Thrash and Burn Spitfire trip we took to Europe for 16 days. There were so many good homies on that trip and I’d never been to a lot of the places we went to, so that was a plus.

FAVORITE VANS RIDER?

Everyone on the team, 'cause they're the shit. 

WHAT TRICK CAN'T YOU DO THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD?

Switch flip.

WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS/HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SKATING?

Mainly video games or taking my dog to the park or beach. 

LAST GOOD BOOK YOU READ?

I can't even remember the last book I read, haha.
