Greatest Street Skateboarders of All Time

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

1 Rodney Mullen

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.

So ahead of his time, maybe a cheezy choice but the best in my opinion

2 P-Rod

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 word

3 Ryan Sheckler

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!

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.

Ballsiest and best

4 Nyjah Houston

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?

You are so cool

5 Rob Dyrdek

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

He just wants money from his T.V. show, just got dropped from DC

6 Chris Cole

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

Simply the bet today mullen it the all time best but this guy beats prod and sheckler hands down

Rodney is a freestyle yes he is very good. be But Chris if full street and HAS WON SOTY TWICE and Mullen hasnt even won it

Cole is a beast for doing that 720 triple flip I think he just messes up to much in a championship

7 Torey Pudwill

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 is the bomb!

9 Daewon Song

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 Rodney

10 Chris Haslam

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.

The Contenders

11 Luan Oliveira

Luan is the best, he wins tampa 2013!

Best ever skateboarding,2 champion sls

He's the best for sure

I wanna have his babies lmfao jk but he's a sick rider no joke at that he should be in the number on at the the top of the list

12 Shane O'Neill

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 skater

13 Andrew Reynolds

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 Mullen

15 Stevie Williams

One of the best ever! Straight from the ghettos of Philly. Best looking tricks of all time. Best manuals. Should be number 1.

16 Mike Mo Capaldi

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

17 Jereme Rogers

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

18 Lizard King

Complete insane. Lizard king a skate lunatic down for anything fool.

19 Tony Hawk Tony Hawk

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

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.

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

Has a master in physics also

20 Geoff Rowley

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!
