Sky Siljeg is home grown Lib Skate since day one. Coming on to the scene a decade ago as a child prodigy, Sky is an all Bitchin’ Board enthusiast who made skateboarding his home and what a home it is. Now, recognized the world over for his competitive bowl exploits it’s Sky’s approach, style and humility that make him the great dude and budding professional bad ass that is smoothly making his mark on skateboarding. Whether it be scraping with the world’s best at Bondi Beach or getting exceptional at Marginal, Sky is doing it with a smile on his face, endless tricks up his sleeve and love and appreciation for a quality board hand made by skaters in the USA.

What Lib Skate do you ride?
I ride the super magical ones that are 8.25 inches wide with a 15 inch wheel base. Every once in a while when I need more super powers under my feet, I'll ride an 8.5
What do you like about Lib Skates?
I like Lib skates because they're super strong and lightweight. Lib hand-crafts an awesome product near Canada in the USA. They're made by skateboarders who care about our environment and the progression of skating.
What's your favorite candy?
Curly Wurlys are awesome. I've only been able to find them in New Zealand and Australia though.
Have you ever peed the bed?
No, it was the teddy bear. I swear!
Denim or leather?
Denim. Or what ever you'd call the thick cotton material they make chino pants out of.
Backside disaster or backside boneless. They are fun.
Favorite skate able city?
Steel or pool coping?
What kind of question is that??? Pool coping all the way!
Favorite DIY skatepark?
Plans for the upcoming summer?
Travel, skate, compete, skate, film, skate, eat nature's candy (fruit and veggies).
What else do you like to do when not skating?
I like to snowboard, paint, eat candy, and travel.
Who has helped you along the way in this skate journey?
Everybody I have ever met has helped in some way or another. The smallest things make a difference. I think everyone knows I'm extremely lucky to have two brothers and an extremely cool mom, they rock! Wouldn't be me without them.
