Really the top present day skateboarders are about 3 times better that in the generations when it was begining. About 54 years ago I made my first modern prototypical Skateboard, Jim Ganzer brought me some roller skate wheels that I substituted for the steel ones. The boad was redwood with pine striggers and coated with surfboard resin. The first skateboard I made was a two by four about four feet long and was used for a skate scooter I had made. We wanted to surf in 1956 but never had boards like the older surfers so we practiced with steel wheeled logs! Later some of the young kids in the neighborhood got the idea from the kids in the Santa Monica Canyon. The best of the children was one of my friends little Torger Johnson who became one the first "Professional" skateboarders he was wonderful, talented fun loving. guy.

How can you forget! Danny Way. (Mentioning he was the first person to jump the Great Wall of China on a skateboard... and laded it 4 times, with an injured ankle...) Danny is a legend to be loved and honored even when he is dead.

Like DWAS-KU on facebook. LocalSkateTeam

Look . Rodney Mullen Is number 1. Fuck anyone else who thinks different. 2. It's Not just the Bangers you have to look at. The List can go on and on.. You also have to look at the technical trick that people do. Look at Guy Mariano, Marc Johnson, MOOSE, and even Brandon Beibel.. THEN you have the dudes who HAVE the bangers like Aaron "Jaws" Homoki, Nyjah Huston, Ryan Sheckler, and Andrew Reynolds. Then You gotta look at the dudes who can skate SWITCH almost as good as Regular like Paul Rodriguez, Keelan Dadd, and Justin "Figgy" Figueroa. Then There STYLE that you might like, Like Mikey Taylor, Austyn Gillette, Sean Malto. THEN YOU HAVE ALL THE RAD MOTHERFUCKIN BADASS skaters, LIKE Jamie Thomas, Chris Haslem, and Mike Vallely. Then The Guys who actually started changing the name of skateboarding, Rodney Mullen, Z boys, Danny Way. So making a list of the top ten skaters is worthless. Gain some knowledge and check this guys out. (I hope this makes sense and you people understand)-DWAS-KU
