Born in 2000, Trey Wood first jumped on a skateboard at the age of three, skating competitively by the age of six. He came up in Arizona where he caught on quickly with his craft at local skate parks and skate spots, often skating with old legends who saw that spark in "little" Trey.
Many action sports fans know Trey from his debut at the 2012 Los Angeles X Games Big Air event. At the then age of eleven, Trey was and remains one of the three youngest athletes in history to compete in the X Games.
Trey is most happy when on a skateboard whether he is on Vert, MegaRamp, bowls or any street landscape worldwide.
In the words of Trey,
“I live to skate and skate to live.”
