Jake Ilardi is part of the new breed of skaters that can rip equally on all terrain. Originally from Osprey, Florida, Jake was unheard of in the skateboard scene until his breakout win at the Empire Am Getting Paid event in 2017. Since then, Jake has been on a spree of destroying contests and turning heads with his mixed bag of powerful park skating and tech handrail tricks. In 2021, Jake earned the honor of being named to the inaugural U.S. Olympic Skateboarding Team. Now residing in Sarasota, Florida, Jake is using his platform to help out with the local skate scene, while still pushing the limits on what he can do on a skateboard. In his free time Jake loves reading, the beach, Chick-fil-A, and hanging out with his grandma.
