Mark Appleyard.

The nollie bigspin champ.

Appleyard got on at the ground floor for Habitat and had a part in their section in Photosynthesis. He soon left for Flip and spent most of the last ten years with the company. He is now on Element. Appleyard also switched from Circa to Globe quite a few years ago. I find his sponsorship moves a little unusual, but he seems to know what he is doing.

Appleyard started his game over at Birdhouse, then went to Habitat....Just adding to that list of weird sponsors...But somehow he has always been backable.

I thought he was back on Flip again.

You are probably thinking of Arto Saari.

Actually, Appleyard was on True skateboards out of Canada before Birdhouse. There was an ad of him in Big Brother switch 5-0ing a skatepark flatbar. I think he got on Birdhouse after doing well at Tampa Am.

Yeah, I kind of left out his stint on Birdhouse.

Wasn't there a Transworld trivia contest about Mark's first ever video part? I think the answer was that his first part was in some random clothing company video. Maybe it was True.
