San Leandro, CA – Skate Shop News: Jake Wooten Drops Into His First Pro Part

A rising star of the skateboarding scene boasting a special transition skating ability, Jake Wooten is one of the world’s most watchable skaters. In the world of skateboarding there’s one quality that’s prized above all others among the heroes and greats: watchability – that ability to draw gaze in a crowded field.

Skateboarding is a very crowded field these days, but Jake Wooten has watchability in spades. Hailing from Tennessee, Jake has overcome a lot of personal adversity to reach the upper echelons of the skate game.

His mother and father struggled with addiction, so he was raised by his aunt and uncle, who encouraged him to try out different hobbies. One of those was skateboarding, which would go on to change his life.

Winner of the 2018 Huntington Beach stop of the Vans Park Series tour, Jake sparks every session, demo or event he enters with an electric fever of intensity, which creates that mesmerizing skate magic. A pure, unadulterated talent in full bloom right now, get all you can of Jake Wooten’s gift on a skateboard because special transition skating ability like his is rare in any generation of skateboarding. Jake Wooten soars. – states his bio on RedBull.com

Fast forward to March 2021 and Santa Cruz announces Jake as one of their new Pro ranking skateboarders. We were all stoked for the Camp Woodward star to finally remove the grom shadow and step into his adult pants officially with his first Pro Part for Santa Cruz Skateboards… and boy he didn’t let us down!

He rockets into the part just as we expected with high flying tranny antics and those smooth flowing lines we all know and love. Huge boosts and long rails slap us around for 7 mins and then lands the K.O. with a twisted ender at Burnside…. 

Great part Jake. Welcome to the Pro life!
