Never mind the huge gaps, the technical lines, and the velvety-smooth rail tricks that Kyle Walker does, the speed in which he does them is what makes him one of the best in the game right now. The Oklahoma native’s ability to find the rawest street spots and then demolish them shows skills well beyond his 22 years of age. Kyle’s jaw-dropping part in Vans’ video, Propeller put him on the global scene and earned him a Rookie of the Year nomination from TransWorld SKATEboarding. Shortly after his Vans part dropped, Real made the very prudent call to turn Kyle pro, and even flew his parents out to surprise him with the announcement. Filming full-length parts for both Vans and Volcom has taken Kyle off the contest circuit in the last few years, but he’s hitting it hard in 2015 by competing in both the Dew Tour and Street League Series.
