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

Rodney Mullen is known as the best street skateboarder the world has ever seen. In a career where he only lost one freestyle event (he came second) and where he invented more than 30 of skateboarding’s now standard tricks (kickflip, flatground ollie, heelflip, impossible, and the rest), his influence is almost beyond measure.

The key to his place in skating history is his style. He was always comfortable and relaxed, and even when doing stuff no one had ever seen before he skated with confidence and a smile. His Bones Brigade video sections in the 1980s defined an era, his design work was and is crucial, and to this day there has never been a more talented skateboarder. Well deserved to be included in this famous skateboarders roundup.
