5 with 5’s: Tyrone Olson Interview

tyrone olson struggle skateboards ad

Tyrone Olson has been an influential skateboarder for me and many others growing up. I remember his part in the original Osiris video “The Storm” being on heavy rotation in my VCR. “T-Bone” as many call him, has been skateboarding the entire time since then racking up some of the gnarliest footage you could imagine. To this day, I feel he has the best rail balance in the industry. He can grind what seems like forever and has a stunning array of switch and nollie tricks up his sleeve. I am fortunate and stoked to be on the same team as Tyrone. Definitely without a doubt he is one of my favorite skateboarders of all time.

5ones: What have you been up to Tyrone? What’s new and what is in store for the future?

Tyrone: I’ve been back in Madison Wi. for the past 3 years filming and skating for the new Tactical Manual skateboard video. Livin’ the midwest life.

5ones: What is one thing a lot of people dont know about you? Hidden talents? Something you’re into that others might not have a clue about?

Tyrone: I went to culinary school and love to cook, wakeskating whenever possible, and learning to blow glass. Most of all keeping it moist, lol.

5ones: To this day, which trick would you say you are most proud of? Or had to work for the most throughout your entire professional skateboarding career?

Tyrone: get’n tech!

5ones: What’s an average day like for you – from sun up to sun down?

Tyrone: Wake up feed the cats, dogs, and goats, drink a pot of coffee, and then callin’ blake and at least tryin’ to film tricks.

5ones: Any shoutouts you would like to give out?

Tyrone: shout outs to:
Struggle Skateboards, my filmer Blake Housenga, photographer Cory Peterson, all the midwest skateboarders, the homies in Cali, and everyone who supports skateboarding.
