Sean Malto (born September 9, 1989) is an American professional skateboarder. Malto is from Lansing, Kansas, United States (US). Sean is of Caucasian and Filipino descent. He started skateboarding at the age of 10 at the hands of the inspiration of his older brothers Justin and Chris. Malto explained in a 2013 video segment for the Skullcandy brand that the Escapist Skate Shop in Kansas City supported his skateboarding from an early age and has never ceased in this role. His father expected him to attend West Point Military Academy, but Malto was ineligible due to an assault charg
Malto's first skateboard deck sponsor was Girl Skateboards and, as of April 2018, he continues to be sponsored by the company. Malto's part in the 2012 Girl/Chocolate video Pretty Sweet was remixed by Girl and Ed Banger Records. Nearly ten minutes in length, the remixed part is edited to the Justice song "Brian Vision MMXIII" and "Secam" by Mr. Oizo. At the finals of the Kansas City stop of the 2013 SLS competition, one of Malto's skateboarding trucks dismantled during the performance of a trick and he was subsequently eliminated as a contender.
In November 2013, Malto suffered an extreme ankle injury that sidelined him from the professional skateboarding circuit for almost 3 years. An in depth documentary on his recovery was uploaded to YouTube in 2016. Malto's first video part since his return is 'Nike SB: Elite Squad' part which was uploaded to YouTube, the Berrics, and the Nike SB website.
As of 2017, Sean Malto's sponsors are Girl, Nike SB, Spitfire Wheels, Thunder Trucks, Beats by Dre, Diamond Supply Co., Escapist Skateboarding, Bones Bearings, Grizzly Griptape, Oakley, GoPro and Mountain Dew.
