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

Most people associate Danny Way as the man who jumped the Great Wall of China on a skateboard. And fair enough, it was mind-blowing. He did it four times with three legitimate and distinct tricks over the 60-foot gap and all with a busted ACL (knee ligament). However, Way is more to skating than just that one stunt.

His part in ‘The Questionable Video’ changed skateboarding forever, as did the ‘The DC Video’ and his building and skating of the mega ramp. His career is packed with evidence of astronomical progression, larger than life skateboarding, and unmatched talent. He is simply one of the greatest skateboarders ever and deserves a place in this famous skateboarders list.
