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

Stacy Peralta’s influential arc through skateboarding is the tale of skateboarding itself. First there was his skating, where he was one of the best and most high profile pro skaters of his time. Then came his skateboard company, Powell-Peralta, the most dominant brand skateboarding has seen. From that business came his skate videos, the Bones Brigade series, that switched on a whole generation on to skateboarding.

And more recently, by directing films like ‘Dog Town and the Z Boys’, with the Z-boys being the professional skateboard crew he used to ride for, Peralta has maintained a vice-like grip on the direction of skateboarding.
