Sky Brown is a skater girl from Miyazaki, Japan, who also has a dual citizenship in the States. Sky is sponsored by Nike, Almost Skateboards, Grizzly, Protec, Independent, Bones Bearings, Skateistan and Bones Wheels.
With dedication, discipline and hard work, Brown is excelling in the world skateboard rankings, and holds the third position above 155 girls from all around the world.
A month ago Brown endured a huge fall during practice, she fell down doing a transfer over the gab between both ramps. It was really tall and she had to stop for a while.
Currently she is recovered and two days ago she took the challenge of succeeding on the Mega Ramp. For this legendary moment, she joined her brother Ocean and family, Tony Hawk, Chris Gregson, Elliot Sloan, Drew Hastings, and more.
How Did All This Happen?
Tony said in his Instagram post that he got a request from Sky to help Sky in this modality, what's better than Tony Hawk guiding you on how to to do mega? You know the answer to that, to him this was a nice excuse to come back again.
"It was inspiring to see her fierce approach and quick adaptation to such a daunting stunt", said Tony in his Instagram post, after he exclaimed that they didn't push her to do it, was all by her, as Hawk said, “She is relentlessly determined to test her boundaries".
If someone is wondering about her safety, they had all preventive measures to avoid any unexpected fall and everything was under control, so she made her dream come true. As Elliot said, "Not only did she clear the gap but she did the full line" conquering the 20' quarter pipes too.
“This was a big one for me, and it really meant a lot to me. It’s hard to explain, but it’s fun, exciting and I want to keep pushing boundaries. I hope that this inspires more little girls to get out there and push with me. We got this!”, said Sky Brown on her Instagram post.
Elliot also expressed his thoughts about this moment with a Vlog on his YouTube Channel, he was stoked by Sky & Ocean's talent and added, "Sky was the first girl to jump the mega at my place and she made it look easy. She blew us all away and I can't wait to see what's next for her".
Likewise, Chris Gregson expressed his support to the Huge Sky, "you truly are one of the gnarliest skaters. Thanks for trusting me to follow you through Elliot's mega-park. Can’t wait to see what you do next". Check out the last interview that we had with Gregson on our YouTube channel.
