A day In The Life of Elliot Sloan

Eliot Sloan: A Day In The Life
A day In The Life of Elliot Sloan
A couple of weeks ago, isTia.Tv published the story of a new Mega Ramp 2.0 which was secretly installed in a secluded place of San Diego County. The ramp has now been taken down and is on its way, first to the Asian X-Games and then on a tour worldwide. Only very few people were authorized to witness and ride this new vert jewel and those who were authorized were more than reticent to talk about it. Amid the people that could ride the ramp are some of the best vert riders of the moment: Justin and Travis Rivera, Austin Poynter, Jeremy Green, Tom Schaar, Mitchie Brusco, PLG,

Lincoln Ueda and Elliot Sloan. So, there you go with this post of A Day in the Life of Elliot Sloan.

Elliot is a stylish vert skater with East Coast roots that has been really pushing the limits lately. Born and raised in New York City, Elliot was quickly drawn to street skating then the vert ramp at a nearby skatepark. Elliot progressed very rapidly in the amateur circuit, and turned pro by the age of 18 (2007). He recently put down the first 900 tail grab.

Elliot Sloan is definitely the new blood on the ramp and mega ramp. He is the future for all major events.

Elliot Sloan Career highlights:

• 4th at the 2011 X Games – Vert
• 7th at the 2011 X Games – Big Air
