Jeron Wilson (born February 1, 1977) is an American "regular"-footed (naturally rides a skateboard with the left foot at the front of the board) professional skateboarder.

Early life[edit]

Wilson was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, California, United States (US).[1] Wilson started skating around the age of nine when he was introduced to the sport by his cousin and was naturally talented.[citation needed]

Professional skateboarding[edit]

Wilson met professional skateboarder, Salman Agah, who saw his potential and helped Jeron become part of the Real skateboards team. Wilson's talent was also recognized by professional skateboarder, Tim Gavin, and Wilson subsequently became a member of the Blind skateboards team. Gavin would later manage the DVS Shoes (formerly the DVS Shoe Co.) skate shoe brand and Wilson signed a deal with the brand that included a series of signature shoes.

Diamond[edit]

As of 2012, Wilson is no longer sponsored by DVS Shoes and is a part of owner of the Diamond skateboard/streetwear brand—founder, Nick Tershay, has stated that a Diamond shoe line will eventually be launched.
