10 of the World’s Most Influential Skateboarders

If you're into skateboarding, you'll want to familiarise yourself very well with all of these guys

One of the best vert skaters of all time and the man that dragged skateboarding into the mainstream. Tony Hawks sits at the top of our most famous skateboarders list because his influence far outstretches his considerable talent. While his vert style and tricks are legendary — he was the first skater to land a 900 back in 1999 — it is his commercial ventures that are responsible for bringing skateboarding to more people than any other.

His ‘Tony Hawk Pro Skater’ video game series are some of the most successful games of all time, while his tours, Ride Youtube channel and Tony Hawk Foundation, which has built more 400 skateparks in the US alone, mean his influence has never waned.
