Top Ten Skateboarders
The Top Ten
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
Are you kidding me? The Nikola Tesla of Skateboarding!V 453 Comments
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
the bossV 592 Comments
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?
He’s got the energy and dedication. He is the best skater in the worldV 195 Comments
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 is bestV 148 Comments
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.
This kid is only like 14 or 13 and he is already has a lot of sponsorships
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.
The boss like he the best element sk8er!V 261 Comments
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 is the best skateboarder ever!V 49 Comments
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
He is a bad bitchV 83 Comments
Rob = Such an inspiration to so many people this kid is HILARIOUS I love Fantasy Factory so much show and him just make my day! - Billiejoeisagod
I would like to meet you. I watch rob dyrdek fantasy factory you're the best skater in the world yo
Rob dyrdek is high spireted and so full of energy that he takes the frustration out of skating and shows it can get you somewhere in life other than just a hobby
Rob lives to inspire other people and has such a great personality he really needs to be recognized by more people.V 141 Comments
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.
legendV 70 Comments
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.
the bestV 21 Comments
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 placeV 22 Comments
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
Just the best pulls of the best tricks and is smooth and tries everything.V 39 Comments
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 must be like at the second placeV 53 Comments
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 -
Bob Burnquist is below Bam Margera? Come on guys, that's just insulting.
The best skater ever! The most creative and risk-taker ever! No one has more medals in X-Games! People put him behind other guys because they don't know the history. He's the Kelly Slater of skateboard!V 25 Comments
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
He was my idol growing up. He should be top 10V 6 Comments
Mike V. Is a hardcore skater I wouldn't recommend messing with him
Mike V is an amazing pro skater 9th is not the right place for him mike's around the world trick is stunning and sick have you ever seen him skate
Mike v is the best skater out there and is the one who inspired me to skate may I mention that I am about to get sponsored by world industries
One of the bestV 12 Comments
How is he not in the top ten? He is inspirational! A true legend. It just doesn't make sense! Krooked for the win!
He opened the doors for street skating basically
Dude sucks horse anuses. He can make you cry when he Allie wit an onion shoved up his but. He"s got bulgy frog eyes and a baseball head
Anybody who's over 20 and knows anything about skating would say gonz was number one. He's the most influential skateboarder of all time and he rode like the board was literally part of him when he was born. you ask any pro skater who's the greatest Street skater of all time and they're going to say Gonz. him and Mullen are number one and two.V 10 Comments
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.
bestV 32 Comments
He is one of the most talented Skateboarders you will ever meet. He is sponsored by many companies and is great in bowl
This guy was in the first tony hawk game
Bucky is awesome I saw him in oc and he was ripping the bowl up
I love youV 3 Comments
He is SICK. He skates like a mad woman. Go death wish. Mike plumb rocks
Totally awesome! Freaky and extreme!
What's lizard king doing way down here he should be in the top ten by a mile
Cool name. cool guyV 7 Comments
Why is this kid at 22nd are you kidding? That dragon flip was mad, by far mine and many others favourite skater. His flat ground skills are insane, and not even a pro!
He is so amazing at skating. He can do so many weird flat ground tricks like the 360 dolphin flip. He is one of the best. He beat chris cole in a game of skate he is so good. - skaterdude122
He should be within the top ten he can do a 360 dolphin flip he isn't pro yet and tat means he as even more time to progress_an amazing skater
He does some crazy ass trick variations he should be at least a lot closer to number 1V 41 Comments
Terry kennedy is suppose to be one of the top 10 in the list if you see he does more stunts than nyjah huston himself
The best grinder I've seen till now
Where is chris joslin
TK should be flattered to be on this TheTopTens.com list. Not that he doesn't deserve to be up here, but he definitely doesn't have as much coverage or as many poser-fans as the others on the list. Too many posers vote on this site for it to be truly accurate. These kids/voters seriously don't know anything relevant about skateboarding or the industry.V 3 Comments
I love this kid he skates with the style of a grown man. Yet he is only 13 years old. - XxViperElitexX
This kid is phenomenal at skateboarding for him to be only 13 - XxViperElitexX
So good for a kid
Hi woodward show is lifeV 3 Comments
he's awesome. does some awesome grinds. tre flips huge gaps
He is just awesome. He is the one who can do tricks very well like the kickflip. I don't care what you think but he is best
So much style with this guy, should be much higher on the list
He is handsome. And he's such a great skaterV 29 Comments
He is one of the best skateboarders alive he should be in the top 10 if not in the top 5
Felipe is insane he's amazing should be in at least the 20's!
Should be in the top 15 to be honest
CHAZ IS THE BEST! HAS THE STEEZIEST TRICKS EVER!
He has the best backside flips and grinds ever! His kickflip back smiths are like butter!
He is the best skater alive he should at least top P. Rod he has won 2 dew tours one when he was 14 2nd when 16 and has always been in the street league championship and finals he's really nice freindly and P. Rod sucks he's never been close too winning the street league but chaz is different he is a skateboarder at will! Love him
This guy should be in the top10 he won the dew cup before he was even pro and just came out with a part that is way better than anything on Ladd or rob dyrdek has ever out out
He is so sick and steezy. He is so consistent and has the smoothest tricksV 6 Comments
He won a street league competition against Ryan Sheckler, Chris Cole, and many other Top-Rated pros in the game.
He can do some very crazy tricks and he won a street league against too big skaters
He won Street league against sheckler, p rod, cole, ortiz, and many others.
One of the only SLS skaters to get a 9.9. Him being down here is a disgraceV 11 Comments
PJ Ladd is a very good skater and he to has won some S-K-A-T-E games
Smooth and good lines
PJ IS JUST A SMOOTH SUPER COOL GUY. HE IS A MAD SKATER AND FLOGS IN SKATE GAMES. HE IS IN THE PLAN B TEAM WHICH MAKES HIM EVEN BETTER. YOU ROCK PJ
I think pj Ladd is the best he is good at skate
Alva 19? The skateboarding world today is a sad place bam is 5 and alva is 19? What
Alva IS Skateboarding. He is the absolute 1st Rock Star of Skateboarding. That is FACT. 27? Get outta here with that.
This guy was the best of all time hands down
Absolute gnarlyV 7 Comments
How is he not even on this list? He is amazing! Nosegrind el toro for the win! RIP Shane, If ali boulula is on here so should shane!
Best pool skater ever... he's been skating since the beginning -
Badass skater R.I. P
Nosegrind el toro, Blunts, Noseslides, 5-0's, this guy has it all!
How is he just 69? Who is Rune Glifberg? Shane should be at least in top 10, and is still considered one of the best street skaters. Half a million views on YouTube!
Stevie Williams is a great skater and one of favs if not my favorite, his manuals are just amazing and totally has helped black skateboarders rise up but if he wasn't on the list I would have voted for R. Mullen. Tony Hawk may have hit the 900 but don't forget who made the ollie and was nicknamed ollie a. k. a Rodney Mullen Duhhh first person to do one on land and created like most of the skateboarding tricks we do today anyway! - ballaboi17
Stevie rides for DGK and this boi can do some sick tricks
Stevie williams rocks he's so good in pop shuve it!
Search this kid because after you watch and video of him he will definitely be your new favorite skateboarder. And rodney mullen was good when such a thing as a hand rail didn't exist. LEO ROMERO was VOTED best skateboarder of the decade by THRASHER MAGAZINE. -------NOW GO AND WATCH A VIDEO OF HIM!
Great all around. Top 10 at least! Sick team too.
This list to me is a popularity contest. Mike v shouldn't even be in the top 20
Super badass, rips it up. The best!
So sick, super original style
Awesome owner and came up with the best team. Watch his mindfield part
He is one of the best skater in Baker so I think he should be in number 16.
He is one of he best
He is awesome and he's from sydney in Australia also his sponsered by vans
Sickass guy looks like a phsyopath
This skater is the best he rips up the competition whenever he competes. he's great. exciting and bad to the bone.
David Gonzalez skates perfectly. He falls so well. and gracefully. this kid is the best skater... in the world.
David Gonzalez looks like a girl. but skates like a DEMON!
This guy is nutsV 5 Comments
He has the most x games gold medals, enough said
One of the smartest skaters ever... He wears pads
One of the better vert skaters.
He is a high flyer and can do almost any trick like Nyjah Huston but what makes him a great skater is that he never gave up and doesn't show off to people he is the true skater
Jaws is way better because he ollied the infamous lyon 25! id like to see hawk or mullen do that
He is crazy.
CRAZYV 2 Comments
This guy is ahead of Geoff rowley?! Lolwut? I guess it just goes to show this list is bull...
Rodney Mullen should be up there, but Tony shouldn't cause he didn't invent skateboarding, alva, cabellaro, and mountain and some other 70s skates did. Every skater with a tv show doesn't belong, except the sheckler that actually skates. Then the obvious Chris Cole, koston, the 90s legends, and ROWLEY. best foreign skater ever. Should be in top ten for an actual reason.
I'm from liverpool so is he I have a flip so does he, he is awesome he's got his own type of board he recently brought out its in rampworx a big skatepark / shop in liverpool geoff rowley rocks!
Geoff is awesome, he is bare good and he also created flip along with tom penny! He really is a skilled skater and any one should be as good as him I know because I am him
Best skater to come out of liverpoolV 8 Comments
Him and his style are just sick. Font think he should be number one, but he deserves better then 33. He should at least be in the top 20.
Mike Mo Capaldi is beast at skating. check out "Lakai Fully Flared" and find the part where Mike Mo is also go to girlskateboards.com for more info or videos on him. He won the first battle at the berrics you should check that too. Just check out Mike Mo! - skaterforever
MIke mo is amazing top 5 if you ask me. He has the highest ollie to this day. His decks are also amazing. You have to love Mike Mo Capaldi. He's set so many records too.
He's so good he doesn't even need to skate rails! And all his tricks are so smooth and flat out awesome
He is a beast and amazing at the game of skateV 6 Comments
What happened to you! He's one of the greatest! In ninetys he change all skateboard way of life!
He is really good at skateboarding
I like it when he fails he's on hall of meat a lot and I like his manuals
Gggiirrl y aren't you number 1
Not just a great skater but all his products are the best
jamie thomas is the best street skater zero rules - cyndyb
Definitely on of the best ever deserve to be between the top 10
Simply a beast all that needs to be said should be top ten without a doubt younger Gen just don't understand the importance of these guys and we're the h*ll is Mike valley on this listV 4 Comments
To all you up and coming skaters that don't know anything 'bout real skating, stop watching the fantasy factory, playing tony hawks games, watching jackass, and all them dew tour cups laugh out loud, daewon vs mullen? Laugh out loud, where they at now? Mike v? For his flatground antics? Laugh out loud... Kids now a days think the skaters on these mtv shows are everything, but when you ask a lot of the same skaters on these dew tour cups and all these shows who their favorite skater is its always PENNY laugh out loud, or he's in their top 5, no lie! Do some research and find out why, other than Tom Penny, Guy mariano is just as good they go missing for a while but come back strong.
Tom Penny has the smoothest style and is the best at landing tricks cleanly. Remember when he did that line at that one school. He makes skateboarding look easy.
to me he has one of the best if not the best style in skateboarding, and he is prob one of the most layed back skaters I have ever seen - masterfred
Tom penny is an absolute beastV 3 Comments
He does vert skating and street skating. -
He was a good skateboarder. Frankie hill was also so good. Old school skateboarders great. We really missed them al
Luan deserves unless a top 5 spot
Mike mo said it himself luan is the best. AnYONE WHO REALLY KNOWS THE INS AND OUTS OF SKATEBOARDING, AND CAN RECOGNIZE NATURAL TALENT KNOWS THAT LUAN IS THE BEST. Nyjahs style is similar but his bag of tricks is so very limited and doesn't have much popp
Luan has come to perfect every trick he knows and he has so much pop on his tricks its fabolous
How is he in 46, you guys need to check out his 9 club replays...V 31 Comments
He is the best he should be at least at twenty with jerry hsu he is French he is my mentor he does everything VOTE FOR LUCAS PUIG
Puig is ok but inst the best which is ok. And I'm not a fan.
Natas Kaupas 48th...whoever said that needs a restraining order from the sport, the skaters and every set of trucks and bearing on this planet. Get away from the industry
Four Words: He invented street skating. Enough said.
He in voted the hello
Natas was ahead of his time. He created the wall ride as well as other tricks, at a time when most on this list couldn’t walk. Go watch his clip on Streets of Fire and realize this was in the late 80’s.V 4 Comments
He is a really down to earth and otherwise than skill a pretty cool dude
He is so good my faverate skater and he iis good at eaating chicken he has the world best style and can do like every trick.
Cardiel needs to be far far far far far far far far far higher in this list. What are you thinking? He's inspired so many people throughout the world, on levels that are so much more deep and fundamental than contest winning statistics or retarded marketing campaigns. Cardiel inspired nearly everyone on this list. Cardiel helped build Thrasher, Slap and almost the entire gnar Bay area construct of the 90s.
He should be in top 10 for sure. 76th Really? What a Joke Who ever posted this needs serious help on how to place skaters. Watch the Bio Epicly Later'd: John Cardiel And see how you feel of 76th then. You should be embarrassed to even post what you don't know. John is such a gifted skater and a ambassador for skating.
Either cardiel or gonz are the best skaters of all time these new guys are good too, but KIDS NEED TO RESPECT THE CLASSICS! I'm only 13 but cardiel is my favorite and best by far except maybe tied with gonz. still my fave though!
John Cardiel is an extremely gifted unique skater & should be number 1! Or the very least in top 5. All hale Cardiel!V 3 Comments
