SKATE ICON: ANTWUAN DIXON.
This is ANTWUAN DIXON,
He is a legend in the skateboarding world...! I've always been a massive fan and what i like most about this guy is that he's a perfect example of being miss understood esp with his appearence....He has taken the skate world by storm and is an Icon to skaters worldwide..!
Born in Victorville, California and raised in Carson, Dixon received his first skateboard from his older brother who had stolen it from a kid, while hanging out at a local recreational park. Dixon was eventually met with the daunting task of learning how to ride it. One of his earliest experiences on a skateboard, include an accident in which he rolled off of a car, subsequently busting his eye open. The incident occurred after he found himself challenged by his brother to do something bold, leaving the top part of the younger Dixon's head permanently scarred.
Now a professional skateboarder who rides for Baker skateboards' sister company Deathwish Skateboards.
