Zion Wright is killing it right now. He just went pro for REAL Skateboards — that happened just the other day actually. He’s young and been on fire for a long time and somehow he front feebled around a curved rail the hard way — which shows you he can skate anything, in and out of contests. He’s from Florida and really good at surfing. But that’s not why we wanted to hang with him. We noticed him first on the AM Scramble trip and since he recently moved out to California to pursue skating, we decided to take him out for the day. Turns out he’s been getting 2 bacon and goudas from Starbucks lately and Zion might be the best name of anyone we’ve ever met. Go hang with us above. Featuring some cameo shredding by Shane Borland.
