Where are they now? Vanishing Point: UK skaters MIA from 2000-2010 – part 1.

Aaron Sweeney

First catching that nation’s attention as a miniscule human wearing oversized garments whilst flip rock fakieing the ridiculously tight Uni Banks replica at The Works back during their 2005 Xmas Jam, Aaron Sweeney quickly became a regular face at most UK events through the mid to late 00’s, scoring himself a grip of printed coverage in both Sidewalk and Document along the way.

Quickly moving from the short-lived Gyppo Army board outfit to be the first UK resident to represent Antiz in 2008, Aaron went on a globetrotting transition focused killing spree up until 2011 (or thereabouts) when he quietly hung up his sponsored skateboarder hat in order to study medicine.

Rumour has it that Aaron graduated from the Royal Holloway University of London this summer too, so whilst a return to full time seven-ply insanity could actually be on the cards, I doubt that a comeback is that far up his list of priorities.
