Sean Malto started skating with his brothers in their hometown of Leavenworth, Kansas when he was just 10 years old. His easygoing attitude matched his smooth, relaxed style, which is almost supernaturally consistent. His consistency paired with a seemingly endless bag of tricks, from lightning-quick ledge combos to heavy flip-in rail tricks, to buttery waist-high switch ollies, earned him TWS's "Rookie of the Year" in 2009 and a nomination for "Reader's Choice" in 2010. His two-song, nine-minute part in Girl’s 2012 movie Pretty Sweet was an unrelenting barrage of hammers. He won the Street League Championship in 2011, took silver at X Games in 2011, and placed fourth at the Dew Tour Toyota City Championships in 2013. An ankle injury sidelined Sean for 2014 and after a long road to recovery, which included multiple surgeries, he’s ready to skate at his peak once again.
