Taking the unlikely path from Pratt Institute to pro skateboarding, Cyrus Bennett’s output and college pedigree prove he’s a closer. Originally from Colorado, the New York transplant is a student of the East Coast way of skating, specifically utilizing everything around you and finding your own angle. The throughline to his skating is that he’ll effectively beat up whatever he chooses, but with the nuance and control to make it all look tasteful and dynamic.
Cyrus attacks the streets, pushing through crusty spots at full speed. The future is bright. This is Cyrus Bennett’s Elite Squad part.
