Kyle is from Leucadia, California and currently rides for Stereo and OJ Wheels. He has been sponsored by Expedition and Black Label in the past. Kyle helped popularize doing tricks on the dirt side of the ledges around planters. He did a backside lipslide to kickflip out on a curved inside ledge to end his part in Transworld's 2004 video Subtleties. The outside planter that everybody would normally skate had been skate stopped to death so he approached the obstacle with a slightly different mindset. He also might have done the world's longest nose bluntslide in 2014.
