Sheckler was introduced to skateboarding when he discovered his father's skateboard at eighteen months of age.
He has stated that the first trick that he learned was a kickflip when he was approximately six years of age.
Sheckler has been competing in street skating and park contests since 2002.
A part of me relates to kids my age, a part of me doesn't, I'm not complaining about my life, but it definitely gets to me when I want to go to the beach.

In 2008, the Sheckler Foundation was created to help the less fortunate, and also to donate to injured and recovering athletes.
