Top-notch professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler has somehow not considered building his own skateboard company until now, even though some of the best skateboarders in the world already did.
In any case, it would appear that the 32-year-old is now, for all intents and purposes, a free agent: Sheckler has departed from his long-time board sponsor Plan B skateboards after 16 years being in the company, as a social media statement that he no longer rides for the brand:
"After careful thought and consideration, I have made the decision to leave Plan B and start a new chapter in my career. Plan B has been an important part of my life these past 16 years and I’m thankful for the privilege to ride for a legacy brand." Shecks said.
He added. "I’ve had the opportunity to establish lifelong friendships with each and every one of my teammates and I wish them nothing but the best and continued success in each of their careers. I am excited for the journey ahead as I remain focused on my health, faith and skateboarding. I am ready to change the narrative."
We wish Sheckler all the best, and we will keep you guys posted if he will eventually start a new business venture and be his own boss.
