The Walker Ryan turning pro video premiere release party is happening right now. We at stashedboxes.com want everyone who did not make it out to the city tonight to be celebrating with us, as we are all stoked for a young talented skateboarder to move up in the ranks. The forums and marketplace members, and all of our viewership audience are taking part in a highlight moment of skateboarding through a special medium, that is to say, this site, stashedboxes.com.
Many of us here are dedicated and passionate in one way or another about skateboarding. Skateboarding is more than just a hobby, or a sport, it is culture. Within this culture is a lifestyle that includes style, fashion, and personality. The aforementioned elements are how skateboarding culture represents itself and how the skateboarders within that culture represent themselves, individually and as a unit. For our readership that will not be able to make it out here tonight, we wish to share pictures six through ten included with the captions that Organika has released up to this final point as part of their 11-1-11 countdown.
Day Six: "Coming off the hype of Concrete Jungle, Walker was recognized on a global level for his unique story, school and skateboarding, and excelling at both equally. The world finally recognized that Walker was here to stay.”
Day Seven: “In addition to his street domination, @walkerryan put in the work to complete a recruit, a bangin, and the last tricks in the Organika United Nations on the @berrics. When approached about going pro for all of his effort, he simply stated that he was not ready yet, and he wants to do something BIG when that finally happens”
Day Eight: “As people know, @walkerryan was attending UCSD during his amateur tenure with Organika, but few knew he actually lived on campus. After singlehandedly putting the school back on the map in the skateboard world, he also became campus securities number one enemy. They knew him by name, and worst of all they knew exactly where he lived. Such a threat would put fear into anyone, but Walker stayed focused, agile, and consistent with everything he did. Nollie front heel on campus in 4 tries.”
Day Nine: “Like a fine wine, time passes and @walkerryan becomes more refined. Now having been an active part of Organika for a year, gaining new sponsors left and right, putting out his own videos to help his homies, interviews in every major mag out, there was only one more thing for him to do…graduation.”
Day Ten: “In about 2 hours, @walkerryan first pro video part will be broadcast to a venue in the heart of San Francisco. This is his pre-graduation and we hope you will attend to help congratulate him with us.”
