For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided pick an athlete from a sport that I haven’t highlighted before and that is skateboarding. Given his good looks and social media popularity, with 2.4 million fans on Facebook, 22-year old (23 in December) Ryan Sheckler seemed like a great choice.

In addition to being a professional skateboarder, Sheckler had his own show on MTV called Life of Ryan that aired from 2007-2009, his own clothing line which he started in 2010, and this year he started line of short skateboard videss on YouTube, called Sheckler Sessions. He is also appearing in a series of online episodes for a series ‘Legacy. The History of Plan B Skateboarding.‘ Each episode explores a unique storyline from past and present team riders as well as other game changers from the skate industry. As of 2012, Sheckler is sponsored by Red Bull, Etnies, Plan B, Oakley, Nixon, Go Pro, Independent, bones, Grizzly, CCS, and Ethika. I’d say he’s doing pretty well for himself.

Sheckler has super sexy eyes, a great body, and lots of tattoos – so if that all sounds good to you, you should appreciate the photos below.

See what I mean about the eyes?

Here he is showing off a tattoo and talking to Extra.

Kicking back at an event in Las Vegas.

Looking studly while he films in San Francisco.

Nothing like a hot guy posing with his dog :)

A couple sexy pictures from his Instagram (where he almost has half a million followers).

Getting a tattoo and enjoying the sun. Great chest:) Also, all of these photos make me want to get another tattoo!
