Move over, Ryan Sheckler! There’s a new rider in town, and his name is Jagger Eaton!
For those of you who don’t know Jagger, he is a 15-year-old professional skateboarder from Mesa, Arizona. Eaton is one of the most progressive and versatile skateboarders the sport has ever seen. His ability to skate and compete on anything from the streets to the mega ramp puts Jagger in a category of his own. In 2012, at 11 years old, Jagger set the Guinness World Record as the youngest ever X Games competitor when he competed int he Big Air competition against industry veterans.
Jagger is adding TV star to his resume with the premiere of his new docu-series Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life. The show is an action-packed adventure series that follows the adventures of the teen skateboarder as he skates the world and hangs with his idols to see what it’s like to spend a day in the shoes of people who are pushing boundaries, living their lives without limits and inspiring others to do the same.
The 20-episode series is created by Rob Dyrdek (Ridiculousness, Fantasy Factory) and produced by Dyrdek and Shane Nickerson of Superjacket Productions. Each episode shoots around the US and will feature Jagger experiencing adventures with some of his idols such as NFL star Larry Fitzgerald, NBA Superstars Chris Bosh and Andre Drummond.
Celeb Secrets caught up with Jagger a few weeks ago to talk about his new show! He also mentions his favorite type of skateboarding, his thoughts on the sport being added to the 2020 Tokyo Games, and his fear for scary movies — make sure to watch the full video below!
