2011 Street League Championship winner Sean Malto, had already established himself as one of the best skaters in the world at the age of 22. Skateboarding came naturally for Malto but he was facing a hurdle in 2013, as his career was in serious doubt after sustaining an injury from landing on his ankle. An injury that had tested him both physically and mentally as a professional skater.

The short film MALTO filmed by Ghost Digital Cinema, documents Sean’s rehabilitation routine. Now as he goes through rehab from another surgery involving a 2cm osteophyte (bone spur) in his ankle cut out, Malto looks back at all the lessons he’s learnt and rekindles his passion for skateboarding.
