Sean Malto (born September 9, 1989[1]) is an American professional skateboarder who won the 2011 Street League Skateboarding (SLS) championship.[2]

Early life[edit]

Malto is from Leavenworth, Kansas, United States (US). Sean is of Caucasian and Filipino descent. He started skateboarding at the age of 10 at the hands of the inspiration of his older brothers Justin and Chris. Malto explained in a 2013 video segment for the Skullcandy brand that the Escapist Skate Shop in Kansas City supported his skateboarding from an early age and has never ceased in this role.[3]

Professional skateboarding[edit]

Malto's first skateboard deck sponsor was Girl Skateboards and, as of December 2013, he continues to be sponsored by the company.[4] Malto's part in the 2012 Girl/Chocolate video Pretty Sweet was remixed by Girl and Ed Banger Records. Nearly ten minutes in length, the remixed part is edited to the Justice song "Brian Vision MMXIII" and "Secam" by Mr. Oizo.[5]

At the finals of the Kansas City stop of the 2013 SLS competition, one of Malto's skateboarding trucks dismantled during the performance of a trick and he was subsequently eliminated as a contender.[6]

Sponsors[edit]

As of 2013, Sean Malto's sponsors are Girl,[4] Nike SB,[7] Fourstar Clothing,[8] Spitfire Wheels, Thunder Trucks, Skullcandy Headphones, Diamond Supply Co., Escapist Skateboarding, Bones Bearings, Grizzly Griptape, GoPro and Mountain Dew.[9][10][11][12]
