Get the full scoop on Jagger’s skateboard setup as he goes into detail on his street board size, trucks, and wheels, along with the different sizes he switches it up to when skating park.

Jagger Eaton’s SŌLUS entry. With all the skate contests canceled this year, Ryan Sheckler opened the doors to his skatepark and invited 13 of the best skateboarders in the world to battle it out in a new digital skateboarding contest. Each skater has one hour to put together their best 45 second to one minute line alone – no crowd & no other skaters, just a couple camera guys and themselves – SŌLUS. Red Bull’s judges, Jamie Owens, Mike Sinclair, and Kyle Berard, will evaluate each video based on style, progression and creativity. Winner will be announced September 27th. Each skaters entry video will drop every week leading up to the September 27th winner announcement. With skate shops struggling during the global pandemic, the winner will receive $2,500 to donate to a shop of their choice. Following the judges announcement, you will have a chance to vote on your favorite video part and the fan favorite will be announced on September 30th. Watch Jagger battle out his run and tap the link to vote for your favorite entry! Vote HERE.

Skateboarders lead a seemingly charmed life – from demos, to signings, to photoshoots, to hitting the streets for the next video part, pro skaters are considered to have the best job on earth. However, when the tours end and the contest season has mellowed out, it’s always good to be back home and enjoy skateboarding in its greatest form: low-stress, no-deadlines, and with the good homies. This is what “Field Day” is all about.
