Jacob Szekely’s outrageous vlogging antics have coursed through a variety of interesting circles, including Southern California’s pantheon of high-level pro skateboarders.

Being the Waco enthusiast that he is, Zeke is the first surfer to get the call up from cross-sport athletes who want to dip their toes in some Texan H2O. His latest Rocket Power-themed video includes Summer Olympian Zion Wright, who has stirred quite the commotion in the skate world over the past few years. He took first in the Men’s Park Final of this year’s Dew Tour, the 2019 Annual Tampa Pro, and the 2018 Vans Park Series.

The clip also contains highly commendable efforts from fellow two-time World Champion and X-Games Gold Medalist Alex Sorgente as well as fellow X-Games medalist Alex Midler.

It’s amazing to see how these skaters’ talents atop four wheels and plywood seem to translate to a surfboard with such apparent ease. But seeing as Waco is a ‘perfect’ ramp, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised.
