Many first learned about Tyson Peterson when he was featured as one to watch in The Skateboard Mag’s “Next Wave” video and print feature. All dreads blazing, Tyson impressed by mixing tech and gnar with liquid execution and a placid presence. Aside from the pile of dreads and eccentric fashion accoutrement, Tyson hits with a floaty approach that translates as well on street as it does in a park or contest.

Making a loud entrance in Vans’ “Spinning Away” (2018) web edit, Tyson put his skill and creativity on display, proving he’s able to not only show up, but set any stage. Shortly after “Spinning Away,” riding high on a diet of bangers, Element welcomed Tyson to pro ranks this past summer, officially making him another talented Floridian turned pro and carrying the state’s shine into the next chapter.

Boston Demo: Vans Skate Team | Skate | VANS

The 2016 Summer Vans Pro Skate Tour ends where it all began for Vans, in the Van Doren Family's hometown of Boston, Massachusetts for our demo at the Bean Town staple, Orchard Skateshop. Back on November 14th, 2015, after more than a decade of planning, the highly anticipated Lynch Family Skatepark located under the Zakim Bridge opened to unseasonably cold winds. Steve Van Doren promised The City of Boston that as soon as the weather broke he'd send the Vans Skate Team out to break in the park properly. And that's exactly what they did! The boys laid it down for the New England crowd and stacked more footage for Orchard than any other stop of the tour; a true ender-ender of a demo. Thank you to all who came out and supported the guys at each stop along the way. It was good to hang out with you all. See you on the road again soon.
