You don’t meet many skateboarders who have been skating since they could walk, but you know ‘em when you see ‘em. And Trey Wood is certainly one of ‘em. In 2014, at the age of twelve, Wood made it to the X Games Big Air Finals in Austin. By 2019, he was holding his first big air gold medal (after landing a never-been-done body varial 720 in his run). Wood is a go-getter, and he has an enviable positive spirit that seems to add a genuine quality to his skating; if he’s on his board he’s smiling. And this can make for a jarring contrast at times: Wood’s Instagram feed alternates between bone-crunching slams and ear-to-ear grins. You could say that’s a lifetime of skateboarding in a nutshell.
