Tanner Van Vark skates with a creative eye and consistency that has to be seen to be believed. The magnet-footed Minnesotan is an all-terrain killer equally at home in the deep end of a backyard pool he found on Google Earth as wallie-ing into a grind on a massive handrail. His raw talent is impressive and well refined, but his unconventional approach to spots is what has everyone talking—even if he himself rarely says a word. Where others zig, Tanner zags, switch, then spins 360 out. There are a thousand robots out there these days, and Tanner isn’t one of them.
