Skater Antwuan Dixon is like no one else in the skate industry. As a kid from Carson, he came out of no where with a breakthrough part in Baker 3, sporting a specific and never-before-seen style, that took people by surprise and wanting more. Ask anyone about Antwuan, and the first thing out of their mouth will usually be something about his unmatched style.
While ultimately the reason for why he is where is, Antwuan's allure goes far beyond his innate and completely unique way of skating. Since his entrance into the skate world he's always been at the center of attention, even when he's not on a skateboard, most notably for his likable and fun-loving personality, the countless tattoos that cover his body and face, and his wild and unforgiving attitude about the things he does.
We've spent some time with Antwuan over the past couple months working on a special video piece about the struggles he's faced in the past year, growing as a person, and his will to rise back up from the pits.
