A part of the re-invigorated eS Footwear program and a regular fixture in Patrik Wallner’s Visual Traveling series, you may know Organika’s Walker Ryan as the well-spoken and equally well-traveled skateboarder hailing from Napa Valley. But did you know that Walker is also quite a manny technician as well?
Well, it’s no surprise that Walker just put out a really bangin’ Berrics 2UP entry. The St Helena skatepark local has one of the smoothest styles in skateboarding and my personal favorite switch backside flip. The emphasis in Walker’s part is above all style coupled with an unconventional eye towards each obstacle while always making everything look so effortlessly precise. That bank to ledge slappy crook revert switch nose manny 180 out is insane! And I’d be hard pressed to name someone with a better nose manny nollie frontside flip (have you seen his latest line with this very trick at JKwon’s gap to ledge? You need to see it!).

If you’ve never seen Sebo Walker skate, you’re definitely missing out. Sebo has been killing it for so long and is one of the nicest dudes in skateboarding you could ever meet. Originally from Salem, Oregon, and now residing in Los Angeles, this super talented skateboarder is also equally adept as an artist, and has also been putting out a host of amazing Boardstix grip tape art for a minute (check out his @seboart page here).
He’s in this year’s Berrics 2UP contest and just put out a really remarkably mind-boggling part that showcases his creativity on a skateboard. If you’ve seen him skate(yes he skates as good in person) you know there’s going to be some step offs in there, but trust me when I say they’re next level. The opening step off wallie bonk nollie heel(or is it a flip, whatchamacall it?) to nose many pop into the quarter pipe makes absolutely no sense. You definitely don’t want to miss this! This will really change the way you perceive what’s possible on a skateboard.
