About Jimmy

Jimmy couldn't defend his X Games Austin gold in 2015, but he did go on to win two big vert contests (Kimberley Diamond Cup, Dew Tour). The son of a professional ballerina and an orchestra conductor, Wilkins is familiar with the importance of practice and is an artist on the ramp. At XG Austin 2014, he went from complete obscurity to the youngest XG Skateboard Vert gold medalist of all time (20 yrs. 9 mos.). Raised in Ohio, Wilkins now lives in SoCal, where he skates on Tony Hawk's ramp. The young talent draws skaters from other disciplines to the ramp just to watch his fresh style.
