When Towell isn’t in the hills of Santa Barbara he can usually be found at a local break working on his surfing. “Lately I’ve been drawing a lot of inspiration from surfing while I’m on my skateboard. Its so fun trying to pump my skate and generate speed the same way I do in the water, its also opened my eyes to some different lines on the roads.”
Since surfing sidewalks is where skateboarding originated from, we thought it would be cool to take that surf/skate mentality to the next level and showcase Tyler doing both. After seeing Towell’s style on some of Southern California’s fastest roads juxtaposed with footage from the water the translation between his skating and surfing becomes clear.
Don’t let the good demeanor fool you – Tyler Howell will chase you down and leave you in the dust on any road or racecourse. He hones in his skill at speed on scary roads like this where he’s at home in Southern California.
Team rider Tyler Howell just made a new video with Caliber Truck Co. in the Malibu Hills. Watch him navigate through technical canyon roads with obstacles and construction workers in his newest edit.

We found Tyler riding a Hybrid GT in the skatepark last year and crushing it with his unique surf style. Within months, he was in the hills with the crew, learning to ride downhill. Half a year later, he’s developed a skill set and comfortably at speed that puts plenty to shame. Arbor Skateboards is
