About Sam

Beckett earned bronze in both Vert and Vert Best Trick at XG Austin 2015. He and Vert silver medalist Paul-Luc Ronchetti became the first British skaters ever to medal at X Games. Beckett, 24, is touted for his style on the vert ramp. The UK's top vert skater became the first Brit to land the 720 on vert. He's got back-to-back 540s and is a technical skater who loves to do kickflips and backside Smith grinds. The nearest ramp to his UK home is two hours away, but he's been spending more than half of his time in SoCal, where the ramps are more easily accessible. Grew up skating with Ronchetti.
