Tyler Howell

  • HOMETOWN:
  • Santa Barbara, California

  • DATE OF BIRTH:
  • January 2nd, 1990

  • SKATEBOARDING SINCE:
  • I was about 10 years old.

  • STANCE:
  • Regular

  • FAVORITE TYPE OF SKATEBOARDING:
  • Anything that gets my adrenaline pumping and feels like a mixture of surfing and snowboarding. Fast, big, and always on the verge of sketchy.

  • BEST PART OF SKATING:
  • When you finally stomp that trick or pull the line you’ve been losing sleep over.

  • LAMEST PART OF SKATING:
  • Getting injured and not being able to skate.

  • WORST HABIT:
  • Losing things on skate trips.

  • BIGGEST PET PEEVE:
  • People skating open roads that are above their skill level.

  • WORST ACCIDENT:
  • 2" spiral fracture in my ankle from a Millerflip gone wrong. The injury kept me from walking for 10 months, but it didn’t keep me from skating. I still pushed around everywhere on one leg with my crutches. Even learned some goofy crutch tricks in the skatepark while I was tortured watching my buddies skate.

  • BEST EVENT:
  • Giants Head Freeride and The Cathlamet Downhill Corral (RIP). Columbia had the best after party though, fighting bulls in a ring and then getting to ride them after a gnarly day of racing an amazing hill is one day I’ll never forget!

  • ONE THING EVERY SKATER SHOULD KNOW:
  • There are a lot of roads out there that deserve respect. When skating bigger, gnarlier roads with blind corners that you have to slide for you must know you have the skill to slide and grip back up in your lane like your life depends on it, because it does! Skate safe, and within your skill level. Oh yeah, and SKATE EVERYTHING!

  • DREAM SKATE DESTINATION:
  • me feel like I was dreaming. Glacier covered peaks melting and turning into flowing waterfalls surrounding you as you go flying through tunnels at 50mph with the waterfalls going over you. It was so unreal I still haven't figured out whether I was dreaming or not.
