Greatest Street Skateboarders of All Timearabhomie68 The "best skateboarders" list, I think, is a horrible list, too many types of skaters, and bam and ryan sheckler are definatly where they shouldnt be, so I'm going to make the street skaters list, vert/pool skaters list, and alot of other lists, so be on the lookout.
The Top Ten
He invented todays skateboarding!
Look his videos and you'll know why he is Nr 1 off all time
Best skater who ever stepped on a board
He was a great freestyle skater at first, then he was forced to start street skating, and I love the way he infused his freestyle tricks with street skating! Like his primo slide and casper slide, and how he will do truck stands and stuff at the top of ramps! He is a great skater, and to the guy who said make some new tricks on Chris Coles, he invented pretty much every trick.

p rod is street skater a hundred percent - ak47
Paul is just an all around amazing skateboarder. His style in my opinion looks effortless and simply amazing. Just wondering why is Mullen on this list? He's a freestyle skateboarder not street. Paul should be number one. Plus he has become a role model for many kids and teenagers now like me.
P-rod will always be a street skater you can't change him at all he is just to good so people who don't like him I hate cause he is the best skater in the world
The best in the wordV 14 Comments
Dude this is guy is unstoppable! He is the beast so just shut up and put him at fist place he obviously deserves it! So I mean go check out his videos and tell me if you voted right!
Definitely should be first. I understand rodney mullen is great but Sheckler was an inspiration to a lot of children who watched him go against adults and do better than them.
Sheckler winning the X-games at the age of 13! He can pull of tricks much more advanced then anyone on this list. He owns the kickflip for example his kickflip at Marblehead and the huge kickflip over fence, not forgeting his kickfliping 17 stairs. He is the most talented skateboarder of all time. Sheckler is street skating!
Only the best.☺V 17 Comments
He is the sickest guy ever, if you don't agree you are just plain dumb! Sorry for how badly I am writing its just I am trying to type as fast as I can because I am so in shock he is number 8. Nyjah is really really really good. Watch rise and shine, watch last call, watch him in contests which by the way he wins most of. People for some reason hate him when really people just hate skaters who were underrated and then become super famous
Nyjah houston should be first because he is the sickest skate boarder I have ever seen he will always be the number one to me
Goes hard plain and simple... He just needs a good wheel and board brand I mean come on Ricta And Element?
Element and Ricta? Nyjah rides them because they're some of the best out there, what are you talking about.V 30 Comments
His world is skateboarding. everything from business ventures to his foundation. His foundation the Rob Dyrdek Foundation builds skate parks for kid called "Safe-Spot-Skate-Spots" and holly hell he KICKFIPED A CAR!
Rob dyrdek is better than any other skater, no doubt about it. He is my idol, I want to aspire to be like rob dyrdek. He flipped a car! Name one other person who has flipped a car before. And he is also the only skater who goes around, spending lots of his own time & money to fix up skate parks for kids, out the goodness of his heart.
He is one of the best skaters I have seen, and love some of his videos personally I think he is one of the best and should be up there with rodney mullen and chris cole
Rob dyrdek have the best style of all the street skaters!V 12 Comments
Chris cole is awesome he has more big air then mullen will ever have but mullen is pretty good but c, mon make some new tricks
His skateboarding is sick and he is seriously unstoppable. I am in love with him, he is so CUTE!
Chris cole should be 1#. You messed this up. For vert I would say Bucky Lasek. Beast won the Maloof Money Cup '09. - BuckyLasek896
Chris cole is epic, when he skates at his best he is unstoppable. His concistency as a skater is unbelievable. He is an icon and ambassador for skateboarding, he revolutionised the sportV 13 Comments
T-puds is a beast I mean look up the big bang video on YouTube you will understand then...
Torey Pudwill being number 8? This guy is so sick such that he switched ollied over 8decks, now imagine he's regular ollie how high it's gonna be? T-Puds is beast, he Pops so high, I've never seen a skater who pops like him, never, and he's laser flips are so good, and he's really, really good at ledges, he's the best tech skater of all time. He's Plan B "True." Is so gnarly! This guy pops really High! And he's Big Bang video part? It's so dope, it's the best skate edit ever! He's certainly better than Nyjah and Chris Cole, so he should be in the top 3. And he's the God of kickflips, whether you like it or not, it's not a question, I'm not asking you, I'm telling you, he's the God of Kickflips, and that's a fact.
This guy is simply awesome. I love his Grizzly grip.
He's one of the sickest dudes out thereV 3 Comments
Luan is the best, he wins tampa 2013!
Best ever skateboarding,2 champion sls
He's the best for sure
Best sk8 god ever!V 2 Comments
He's one of my favorite pro skaters! HE ROck! - shosho
Miss watching him skate
"He rides clean makes everything look easy"...
Rodney mullen - LMB
ClassicV 1 Comment
1 I think daewon song should be above chris cole cause chris cole basically copies everything daewon does like rly ne way no hate on chris he is a good skater but c'mon daewon skated with mullen and these guys are epic like he is way more excting to watch. Also P-Rod not tht fun to watch he is just rly tech with his tricks. Also there are so much skaters tht aren't included on this list it just seems like sum1 just looked at the Tony Hawk videogame and watched Lords of Dogtown and typed in the skaters they saw hahahahahahaha lolz - ballaboi17
Daewon Song is amazing! Mullen is also amazing, but he just annoys me when I watch him skate. Deawon just takes the hardest tricks, and makes them as smooth as butter. P rod IS boring, and Chris Cole's style doesn't seem as effortless as Daewon's. I actually think short skaters look smoother because of their lower center of gravity. All these other guys don't have the smooth/ difficult combo of tricks. Daewon should be #1 (for now)
Daewon should definitely be at the top of this list for his technical and graceful approach. Nobody compares to his ability and creativeness, for example; nobody utilizes as many objects to skate and yet make the tricks look so easy. Also, his ability to balance himself and pull off the tricks he does is unmatched. Unseen style of skating and a true original pioneer.
Daewon is like RodneyV 12 Comments
Haslam's an uber beast! he made up a brand new trick right on the spot! double fakie laser flip! only Haslam can do that!
HASLAM is hands down the #1 Street Champ now, and one only has to look at the team roster for Almost to see the two biggest legends of street (Rodney Mullen, Daewon Song) who selected him to ride for them. Haslam has sick style almost like he is the Idiot Savant (without being socially retarded like Rain Man) of Skateboarding. Talk about trick combos he is the King Ol' Elvis himself would get up off the pot to stand for Haslam when he rolls by.V 1 Comment
Definitely should be at least top 5. Never seen a skater so technical. And just a great personality all together
He's a sick skater with awesome tricks that he pulls off almost effortlessly, definitely one of the best
Shane O'Neill should be in the top 15 for sure. That guy is an amazing street skaterV 2 Comments
He Is a Half-Pipe Skateboarder - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995
Look at the xgames
Baker3 with andrew was the craziest skating I've ever seen. Go reynolds and where the heck is john cardiel
One of the best stair/rail skaters of all time and truly a perfectionist! Makes tricks but if he feels like he blinked wrong, he'll just do it again. An artist of skateboarding.
Craziest skate footage I have ever seen in baker 3. Definitely one of the top skaters that ever lived.
He is right up there with Rodney MullenV 2 Comments
One of the best ever! Straight from the ghettos of Philly. Best looking tricks of all time. Best manuals. Should be number 1.
He's skated the love park and he runs dgk skateboards
In my opinion, he was the best back in his day. Wish he wouldn't have retired his board. Still one of the greatest though!
This guy is so sick
Mike mo is a beast when It comes to ledges. Not that many skaters can fakie fs crooks 360 flip out.
The guy is so cool
Complete insane. Lizard king a skate lunatic down for anything fool.V 3 Comments
Wait a minute, this is a list of the best street skaters, why is tony on this list, he skates vert, but he;s number one in that
He is definitely not the best street skater because he doesn't skate street he skates bowl I think he is probably the best bowl skater
Guys where have you been we are talking about TONY HAWK the best skateboarder well in my mind muller rocks I can understand him being first but the other guys. tony should be 2 or 3.
Has a master in physics alsoV 4 Comments
He's the dave mirra of skateboarding I think he should be 2th after luan olivera kick it manV 1 Comment
I love rodney mullen but he's freestyle I know he invented street but he doesn't do handrails but geoff has and definitely the best style in street skateboarding by the way why in the hell is rob on this list he's not a real skater in my opinion
Watch more videos retard Mullen does rails & stairs maybe not as big as Rowley b/c He's a beast. I love both both Rowley & Mullen
And then throw in Haslam, Daewon & Jamie Thomas you got the Top 5 best street skaters in my book. Haslam, Daewon, & Mullen got your technical for miles, and the you got Rowley/Thomas for go big or go home baby!
What are you smokin chaz should be at number 2 maybe he doesn't ride for good companies but he's an amazing skater
Chaz Ortiz, the best pro skater ever, perfect land!
He is a beast and he should be in the top ten.
The best skaterV 2 Comments
Biebel is the Shi##. Boyz got verts toV 1 Comment
Malto makes everything seem so effortless when it's extremely hard he should be in the top 10
Malto is so sick and he is the most consistent skaterV 2 Comments
Helped pioneer street skating.V 1 Comment
One of the best street skaters of all time. these kids haven't proved anything yet!
He's the risky skater ever also he's tricks are the cleanest
Judging by the eye test he's my pickV 1 Comment
Dustin dollin is an absolute Aussie ledgend
This guy was my inspiration as a spotty teenage skater back in the late 80's and early nineties. He was cool, had style and definitely pushed the envelope... Although looking back at some of the old footage, it does seem these kids have taken it all to another level. But creds to the Kaupas!
He was my teacher in the 80's
All these young boys forget they roots. Natas invented every trick in the book
In my opinion Natas should be #1 he invinted street skating.
Chad has been around and no one can actually beet him when it comes to street skateingV 1 Comment
Mark and Natas skated street together and were the first skaters ever to do tricks down handrails and flips down stairs and much, much more. Placing them in the 30's is downright disrespectful. Study and you shall learn!V 3 Comments
Smooth at everything
Jay adams all the way dude, street surfing is the way forward
Ladd at 38 shows that it's nothing but posers on this site. He could destroy Nyjah Huston in a game of SKATE (and he has) any day. You're stupid if you think Huston is better.
Wonderful horrible life get educated
Best part yet, 15 years ago.
He's 34...and still skates ledges as he did when younger. his wonderful life part STILL IS one of THE most technicall street skating parts of all time. Now he just skates for fun and even so, STILL giving us parts that blow our minds.V 2 Comments
My friend showed me him n he is rly steeze with every thing and his pop shuv-its (emphasis on the POP) get so much air
Nyjah is just awesome he has great style and technique I think he's better then Ryan sheckler. I don' know why he's not up there.
Why the hell is nyjah not up in top 10? he is really great at street
He can Dragonflip so how is this dude at 70?
he is rly sick like watch him on youtube like he is not even signed yet like dude is sick sum1 needs to sign him now like omg he is better than sum of the people on here. Rly creative, big wow factor, not tht amazing with his steeze but amazing vert tricks tho.
Matt did the most amazing street skating in the world! Please you guys! He was the best! Look at his footage!
Matt is the best street skater of all time! Hands down!
360 Ollie tail grab over a picnic table
He is amazing at what he does the best SKATEBOARDING he might not be the best but he still has skill
Way underrated. Dropped out of Birdhouse, and is under Mishka NYC but come on, Element? Plan B? This guy needs more recognition.V 1 Comment
Needs to be in the top 5! Crazy good with style, I thought we we're talking street skaters peeps..
He is an amazing street skater, when it comes to manual pads I would consider him one of the best in the world
