The Berrics‘ eshop, The Canteen, is back with yet another aPROciation Day, this time showing love for Girl Skateboards rider Sean Malto.

Our Berrics family had this to say about Sean:

Sean Malto first landed on the scene in 2005, appearing in some Crailtap tour edits at the age of 15. And, 14 years later, he pretty much looks the same. What’s his secret? Is the Fountain Of Youth actually located in Kansas City? No one knows for sure — all we know is that Malto is too good to be true, in every sense. Right from the start, whenever he stepped on his board it was like he had the Midas touch. But after eight years of this golden-boy reputation, something traumatic happened.

In 2013, the skate world was shocked by footage of Malto’s potentially career-ending injury — a hardflip gone awry. Over the next year we were all enthralled by his against-all-odds rehabilitation. By the end of 2014, Malto was back at The Berrics training, with a resilience that was, once again, hard to believe. We’ve all seen the footage of the slam, or we tried to, grimacing and flinching at the moment of impact. To Malto’s credit, he allowed everyone into his life, turning his trauma into his generation’s most inspiring comeback story. The star of KC’s Escapist skateshop escaped a certain fate and taught us all about human resolve.

Since his injury, Malto has appeared in dozens of Berrics projects, including a must-watch docuseries directed by Steve Berra.

To celebrate the 29-year-old’s career, The Berrics is releasing a limited-edition Girl skateboard signed by Malto himself. It goes on sale Friday, August 30, at 5 p.m. PST at The Canteen.
