The constant hum of spinning skateboard wheels has echoed through the streets of New York City for decades now, but it’s been a long time since a man like Tyshawn Jones has been riding them. Just 20 years old, the Adidas, Supreme and Thrasher co-signed skater -- who’s currently fronting the latest issue of i-D -- has transcended his homely New Jersey-cum-The Bronx upbringings to become an international superstar on the scene.

Watch the first documentary exploring his life story with words from Tony Hawk, William Strobeck and Andrew Reynolds to name a few.
