Zered ‘Dr Z’ Bassett achieved initial fame as an East Coast underground favourite, however he has since gone on to become a worldwide sensation! His specialisation? Well, he’s not too sketchy on rails, ledges, sculptures, stairs, construction equipment and many more.
Come to think of it, there doesn’t seem to be any urban obstacle that he hasn’t appeared to master. Whether he’s skating in the far off locale of Zululand, South Africa, or dodging traffic right outside his Manhattan apartment, ‘Dr Z’ sees a world of opportunity that is lost on most of us. This ability allows him to create something out of what can seem like nothing to the average passer-by.
Growing up in Chatham, Massachusetts, Zered worked in the family business just to make ends meet. But after a Transworld SKATEboarding Rookie of the Year award in 2005, TV appearances on Fuel, interviews in nearly every major skate magazine, a Zoo York pro-model board, his ends are pretty much welded together.
Zered Bassett has become one of the most prominent and covered skaters on the East Coast. So go ahead and take a seat in the waiting room, the doctor will be with you shortly.Read more
