In many ways, Sean Malto’s rise in skateboarding is both “local boy makes good” and a complete anomaly. That really gifted grom at the park rarely goes from shop kid to elite sponsors, especially when that park is located in a town in the midwest, far from the heart of the industry. From the age of 10, Malto was so disciplined in his pursuit of a skate career that his success was almost mathematically predetermined. Even after suffering a major ankle injury, he exudes all the fluidity that established his presence on screen and in the contest circuit.
