Shuriken Shannon is a Southern Cali, Born Bred Shredder from Ocean Beach, San Diego. I remember seeing this kid with a lil fro straight merking spots all over SD years ago, now he's all grown up and been handling it like a True Champion ever since. This guy is on my top list of favorite skateboarders, and a good homie to say the least.
Keep an eye out for more of Shuriken, you will be seeing a lot more of this dude in 2012!
