JONO SCHWAN

 

Jonathan Schwan is one of skateboarding’s most versatile professionals and an admired ambassador of the sport.   Jono’s success in competition, coupled with the work of his charitable foundation, has made him well known throughout the skateboarding communities around the world. 

Jono’s competition success began at a young age.   After winning the amateur Free Flow Tour Championship, at the age of 14 Jono debuted as a professional in the Dew Tour’s 2011 Las Vegas Vert Finals competition.  Since then, Jono has competed in skateboarding’s biggest events including the X-Games, Dew Tour, World Extreme Games and the Skateboarding World Championships.  Jono has consistently made the podium around the world in a variety of disciplines including vert, bowl, park and mega.  Jono is passionate athlete who is pushing the limits of skateboarding every day. 

In 2013 at just 16 years, he became the 10th person in the history of skateboarding to land the elusive 900, and then only months later became the second person to accomplish a 1080 on the Megaramp; which coincidently was the same year he graduated high school.  If you ask Jono what skateboarding is about, he’ll say “progression”, and that’s how he lives his life -  pushing the limits and striving to do something new everyday.  He’ll tell you, A good day is learning a new trick and a great day is doing something that’s never been done before.

Jono took this past year off from University to travel the world as a professional athlete and he did manage to circle the globe competing in skateboarding most prominent events for Vert, Bowl, Park and Mega.  Some of those events included the World Extreme Games in Shanghai, China; the X-Games in Austin, Texas; the Skateboarding World Championship in Kimberly, South Africa; Rio Rocky Man, Brazil;  Red Bull Skate Generation, Florianopolis, Brazil; and the St.Pete Action Sports in Florida.  Jonathan Schwan was consistently in the top ten and on the podium.
