Daily Ops: Ryan Sheckler
10 Ways To Handle Crazed Autograph Seekers
The Skateboard Mag December 2006
By Rob Brink

Some pros might never know the trials and tribulations of being adored by skate fanatics all over the world. Others know all too well. Ryan Sheckler has had his share of celebrity moments and is no stranger to outrageously ravenous fans bum rushing him or enduring endless, spur-of-the-moment autograph signings. Should you ever find yourself in his predicament, here's a few tips on how to handle it all from a guy who's got it on lock:

1. Carry a Sharpie or pen as much as possible to avoid having to turn away those autograph seekers who aren't equipped with a writing utensil. You should see the look of despair on their faces when we both realize that no pen = no autograph.

2. If you want to skate without being distracted by crazed fans, don't stop moving. Sure you might get tired and wear yourself out before your contest run, but it beats getting stiff legs because you get sucked into an hour-long vortex of signing random stuff.

3. If ugly girls ask for a kiss or hug, just tell them you have the flu and don't want to get them sick.

4. If a hot girl asks for a kiss or hug, give her one.

5. If any boys happen to ask for a kiss or hug, um…tell them your girlfriend wouldn't be too stoked if she saw you kissing a guy.

6. When you finally do stop to sign a few things, you might as well have a friend bring over a beverage, a chair, and a masseuse 'cuz you're gonna be chilling for a while.

7. When the line never ends and you need to escape to take a leak or just go skate, be firm. Just hand back the pen, don't make eye contact, make a blanket apology and express your gratitude and break the hell out. Don't look back either, you wuss.

8. When people start breaking out their camera phones, digicams and the like, asking for photos with you, make dumb faces. Skaters never really know how to smile and it looks far worse than an "ironically silly" face.

9. The autograph seeker is always right…

10. And last, but certainly not least…sign anything…including female body parts!

  10. if i'm allowed to swear here.. then i say fuck that. paint pens are better than sharpies, i mean.

    way to go R.S. practice your photo-face kiddo. i reccommend the side-mouthed doe-eye made famous by the other rob [meronek].

    xo

  13. good luck.

  14. Wow, number 3 isnt just a little bit shallow. That makes you come off as such a prick. If you werent famous, trust me, girls wouldn't fuss over how good looking you are because in reality, yes, you are super cute and decent looking, but you're pretty f'ing skinny, and quite frankly i see guys that are like 3 times hotter than you everytime i go to the mall. You're nothing special when it comes to looks, but yes you are a good looking guy.

    You are a hell of a skater though, not that you will ever read any of this. You are damn good at what you do, but dam appreciate everybody, ugly or pretty.

  15. Finally the boy gets some personality. The Clyde article in that issue is one of the best by the way. I think that article made up for the Danny Way cover.

  16. Ryan's body is perfect. I think those overly-muscluar guys are waaaaay unnatraictive, like muscles on your neck is so not hot. So unless you are trying out for a Terminator remake, cut down on the weight lifting please. Ryan is hot, but some of these interview answers are kinda shallow :/

    Heeeyyyyyy
  17. It kind of shocked me how he called them "ugly" girls. Like, even if he does think that they are unnatractive, if it wasn't for them he wouldn't have much. Like there are all these girls obsessing over him daily and all they want is a hug and he won't even give them that. Kind of ungrateful if you ask me.

    Heeeyyyyyy
  18. okayy. let me start off by saying ryan is SUPER attractive. he is an awesome skater and i LOVE him! hes not to skinny.i think thats what makes him ryan sheckler. and if he was any bigger i think hed look weird and UNATTRACTIVE. so yeah....RYAN IS AMAZING.

  21. this is pretty kool yea when the next X-Games comes me and my best firend lauren are going 2 see Ryan Sheckler!!!!!!!!!!!1

    shecklersgirl~!~!~24
  22. I think number # 3 made Ryan Sheckler look like a big ass! I love him to death and think he's the awsomest skater ever (hottest too) but when he said "ugly girls" that's too much. Because no ones ugly! You're beautiful because of what's inside, not out and I don't care if anyone disagree's. And it made him sound like a perv on #4 and 10. :( I'm disappointed in Ryan. It makes my want to cry

    Caty!! :)
  23. Yeah.
    Alright.
    10.Sign anything? Do you include males in there?
    8. Obviously Ryan knows how to smile from the pictures I've seen. Although, I'm willing to see that silly face.
    4. Tsk tsk. Player player much? Noice.
    3. Now there. number three proves you can not judge someone without knowing them. Most people would probably think Ryan as a person who would do something nice for a fan. I s'pose I can't blame him, but going on something such as looks? If I were him I'd just go on the smple fact my mouth ahs touched someone I've never met before.
    Eh. People should stop coming on here and telling how hot or sexy they think Ryan is. And people should deffinetely not come on here and ask stupid questions such as what he's going to do when it goes away. Unless you can see the future I advise, you shut the fuckin' hell [parden my language] up. It's not like it really matters to you anyways. All I can do really is wish Ryan the best of luck. Not that he needs it anyways. He's had plenty of it and I don't think it's going away anytime soon.

  24. Truely made mistakes in that one.
    Oh well, I guess the spelling errors actually give it personality.
    I'm not even going to bother fixing them. ;]
    Ew.
    I just did a smiley.
    How disgusting.
    By the way;; love Ryans pants.
    I decided to go on a first name basis.

  30. 3. If ugly girls ask for a kiss or hug, just tell them you have the flu and don’t want to get them sick that's a big OOPS ryan!!!....i mean....wtf?.../:)......and about HIS looks....everyone can look that way if they go to the gym and practice....so..nothing special to that.....i really don't like his attitude there......... 10. And last, but certainly not least…sign anything…including female body parts!........................dude....you gotta stop this shit!!...4 real..!

    no_need_4_u
  31. a ) he`s a guy. he`s got an excuse to be perverted and all that shit.
    b ) would YOU really wanna kiss or hug someone that you think is unattractive?
    c ) he has a reason to be conceited.

    evil monkey.
  32. Domino_LaRa,
    wth, dude, #3 made him sound is sallow and everything,but whatever it should't really matter.

    i think that he is pretty hot, but all the girls that are totally obsessing over him, get a life. look, in a year or two you guys are probably not gonna like him.

    north_rangercutie
  33. mkay...first off i like ryans skating style...and im sure he said some stuff that is a little offending...but i mean c'mon you dont have a lot of screaming fans every second of your life at your side...give him a brake...he needs it..he spends most of the year doing what he loves....but also doing a job that brings the money in....and when he's home im sure he wants to chill with his family nd friends....i forgive himm and you should too...sheckler is like the bestest skater ever....and plus he's really cool in person..concieted....but cool.....i think that he didnt mean nothing too bad by it!

    the flu given to them by ryan sheckler.
    but seriously...who wants to kiss any ugly girl?

  54. all you guys fucking freaking out say stupid shit like oh i love ryan, oh my god ryan is the hottest skater ever y'all need to find boys your age in your towns or citys that will actually talk to you and all you that say he's shallow never the fuck mind and im the greatest skater ever biotch

    Jordan Farrell
  55. HAHA I feel sorry for Sheckler. He's so accepted in the celebrity world, but in the skateboarding world he's a total outcast. Everyone think's he's a faggot, but honestly their all jealous of him I admit it I am jealous of the guy.

    Jeremy P
  56. I don't see how you could love someone you've never met before and probably never will meet. Sheckler wouldn't wan;t you anyway that would be weird to have a girlfriend that was obsessed with you like most of you are.
