Top Ten Skateboarders

The Top TenXW

1Rodney Mullen

This guys tricks are absolutely insane. He is by far better than Tony Hawk and all other skateboarders!

I voted mullen the best because he is, but to not even have Cardiel in the top ten? You guys all must have been born in 1994.

He made almost every free style skate trick today and his boards are the best

Thank you enough said

2Tony Hawk

he is the only one ho can do a 900.
i like him better than Rodney Mullen.
he is NR.1 now, later an always!

I used to like him but he is not that good anymore. He is good at vert skating but not at street. And he is not the only one who can do a 900 he was the first one to do it.

Tony Hawk rocks! No one messes with the Hawk! He is my FAVORITE skater ever, because HE was the first sk8er to do a 360 DEGREE flip. He is awesome, and I like him. Dark sk8ter

He is so awesome he makes rodney look like a idiot

I love this guy

3Ryan Sheckler

The way he is pulling the backflip trick is so great! He is making it look so smooth

He does many amazing tricks and his video is epic


Yeah, and when was the last time that ryan sheckler pulled a perfect dark slide?

He is the best

4Paul Rodriguez/P-Rod

P Rod is the best at manual, nollie, boardslide- need I say more?! Plan be the best!

P-rod should be the best if anyone says p-rod sucks I will hate them forever. I don't no why he is 6 he should be number 1! I hate everyone who says he sucks I mean why do people not like him like they did a couple years ago.

P-rod is the best and the should be the number 1. He will top ryan sheckler but people only like him cause he is young. P-rod is so good that nobody can describe how he skates. He's the one how made me want to skate.

P Rod is an art to skating. There is just no saying how good he is.

5Nyjah Huston

Sick, the kid is sick. He would be in the top 5 very soon. He has a great future ahead and he could reach even higher than he already has.

Nyjah Huston makes me go skateboarding after I watch his videos. Anything to say? I mean he's so young and I think he'll be the best skateboarder in the whole universe.

This kid is only like 14 or 13 and he is already has a lot of sponsorships

Nyjah huston is the best tony hawk suckS

6Chris Cole

He is in a level just for himself, both for consistency and variety, respects to Mullen and Hawk and everyone else but this guy has the tricks, the style and the attitude.

Chris Cole is my favorite skater ever he makes his trick look so easy and he lands at least 70 percent of them. Cole is the best

Chris Cole is a two time Thrasher Skater of the Year, he is one out of two skaters that have won TSOTY

This guy is awesome at skateboarding

7Danny Way

Danny way only the the best skaters ever he is the best
the best I tell you the best.
he jumped the great wall and dose amazing grinds

Come on people! He jumped the great wall, lipped the hard rock hotel guitar, landed the first 900 (tony hawk was only the first in competition), and holds the world record for highest air.
- anthonymcfadden

He is simply the best. Danny way rulez!

This guy is so awesome

8Bam Margera

He awesome
So very awesome, he is my idol so I vote him, and his tricks was dangerous, skateboarding around his house, in the roof of their house, like a stunt man, bam margera should be at ryan sheckler's place.. He's my number 3

ya he is awesome I like his style he makes every trick look easy

Bam is arrogant towards skaters I have seen him in person and so have many of my fellow skaters he deserves recognition but never applause ryan sheckler puts him to shame and so does chris cole. If you feel bam is a good skater cool I think he is a bit of a joke rate for him should be 10 just for how he treats people.

Great and was hilarious in Jack Ass

10Chris Haslam

Chris Haslam is not just a skateboarder, he is a trick creator! He should be at TOP 5, not at 10th Place. I just don't know why much skaters rate his tricks has stupid tricks, he rocks!

Should be around where c cole is, he has the most unique tricks (like the dolphin flip)
And skates everything. - arabhomie68

Has a good attitude when being around fans. He takes the time to get out into the community, and share a good experience.

Inspired me and my friends to skate

The Newcomers

?Riley Hawk
?Tas Pappas

If you don't know who he is or his contributions to skating then you have no business voting on this list.

Taz was amazing whose issues completely hampered what he would have become.

Tas is the best skater he is better then Tony Hawk in fact he bet him in the 1996 X games and he invented the 900! Not Tony that's why he wasn't allowed to compete in the X games any more because he was the better than Tony and still is!

The Contenders

11Torey Pudwill

amazing! he skates like mad! He is one of the best Skateboarders of this world. He was born on a skateboard man!

This guy is awesome! Best skater I know except rodney mullen. Won the tampa pro!

Torey is sick as not the best but should be like 14 or 15 definitely better then Bam and Tony Alva. His big bang video is tight. Whenever you see him in team vids its him and p rod who are the gnarliest

Amazing he is a mad man

12Eric Koston

Rodney Mullen is the god of skateboarding and Bam Margera is good but maybe doesn't deserve a spot in the top ten and tony hawk could do any trick that you ask. Rodney Mullen invented more than the ollie look up some of his videos then tell me he isn't a good skater

Dude's got some insane skill watch the final flare wow just so clean on all his tricks you posa's stay off this tony hawk can't harflip anymore mike valley is better than him sure rodney mullenmade the ollie that doesn't make him a good skater - skaterr989

He is a legend because he totally influenced a lot of things in skateboarding. He also created many skateboard companies. He is very successful in his career or dropping out of school at grade 10.

Your awesome and my biggest fan!

13Chad Muska

How is he not higher on the list he is one of the best street skaters out there, who else can ride a skateboard on its side.

The dude is a boss. He can land the same trick as anybody but the landing is 10 times cleaner

He is the best I like when he was wit c1rca

Bob is a beast, how could he be so low?

15Daewon Song

Should be 1st or second, because, for me, is in the same level of Rodney Mullen (Just watch almost round three)

Definitely better then p-rod! - bde111223344

Daewon song is a better street skater p-rod bam and sheckler
He should be 3 - shelzza

Daewon is the best he can ride anything!

Bucky wins everything these days.

18Andrew Reynolds

Why the Boss don't have a comment yet? And he is not only capable to ollie the bunch of stairs or a 15 feet gap but he is doing nollie kickflips or some other stuff that Sheckler and the rest of that extra-overrated bunch at the top of that list (not to mention Cole, cause he's really awesome, and the duo Mullen/Hawk were great... in the 80s) can only dream of. Look at his Birdhouse "The End" part or "Stay Gold" part to see what the real skateboarding is.

did nobody see the biggest kickflip known to man?
nobody but the BOSS HIMSELF could do that

Yesterday he was 7th place now he's 15, that's bull. His part in baker 3 was legendary, he expoldes down stairs like cee lo green gains weight.

I can't believe his not in top ten

19Lizard King

He is SICK. He skates like a mad woman. Go death wish. Mike plumb rocks
