Ryan Sheckler takes a break at a table as he visits Manhattan’s JCPenney store in NYC on Friday afternoon (August 28).
The 19-year-old athlete stopped by the store to promote his new fashion line, RS and to hang with many of his fans.
Ryan recently shared with Sports Illustrated on his love for skating, saying, “They’re the only reason I’m here today and doing what I’m doing. My parents could have done a million things with their lives. My mom was a dentist and had a great job, and my dad runs two companies and he worked all the time so that we were able to travel. We weren’t poor by any means but we weren’t filthy rich, so it was awesome growing up in my house with a supportive family. When I was eight I won my first contest, and when I was nine I was traveling with my mom all over the country and skating with these teens, and that’s when I realized this is a big deal and I could do something with this and I started getting followers. Tony Hawk also had a huge role in my life in showing me the right path and making sure I got to where I am today.”
RS is available at JCPenney’s nationwide and online at JCPenney.com/teen.
