Top Ten Skateboarders

The Top Ten

1 Rodney 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

He's the inventor of some of the modern day tricks

2 Tony Hawk Tony 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

In my opinion Tony Hawk is the worlds best skater.

3 Ryan 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

GO SHECKLER PPL SO WAT IF RODNEY MULLEN MADE UP ALL THE TRICKS?!?! RYAN SHECKLER CAN DO ALL OF THEM! RODNEY MULLEN AND TONY HAWK JUST THINK THEY ARE AWESOME BUT RYAN SHECKLER IS REALLY AWESOME

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

BS kickflip is always so clean

4 Paul 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.

He's so good

5 Nyjah 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

He is beast at grinds! Rarely bails!

6 Chris 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

great

7 Danny 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!

He can do tricks for days and his grinds are pro

9 Bam 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.

Bam Margera is good but I don't think he deserves a place on this list. People probably rate him so high because he's one of the more popular skaters because of Jackass, and viva la bam. Theirs a lot of skaters who deserve to be rated higher than him.

10 Eric Koston

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

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

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.

Truly the best skater. Media may hype over others, but Eric Koston is the best, in the eyes of professional skateboarders, which is the only opinions which should matter, in this debate. Who cares what stupid, poser kids think, who can't even identify a nollie frontside from a half cab.

The Newcomers

? Damonte Tillman
? CJ Collins

So good for a kid

The Contenders

11 Chris 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.

HOW IS HASLAM NOT IN THE TOP 10?!? He can ride a skateboard on a skateboard like a grind, can grind, grab, and manual like a boss, and has the hippy jump down so well he can step on the rail before landing it! I love him and he inspired me to skate in the first place

12 Torey 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

Best there is

13 Daewon 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

He's a beast. He's my inspiration

14 Bob Burnquist

How the hell is Bob Burnquist all the way down here... the guy is straight up amazing.

Only one to beat Danny Way at the Mega Ramp -

No one can get bigger air than him he should at least be rated number 3

The first fakie to fakie 900 so far

15 Chad 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

Yes, he is one of the best skateboarder of his generation.He belongs to the elite skateboarders with Tony Hawk.

18 Andrew 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.

What Reynolds is at 18? And gonz at 17? You guys just like actors, when it comes to the gutter/ in the streets skaters Reynolds is easly in top 5
