I'm waiting for a skater who dresses, talks, walks, looks and kickflips like Bruce Lee kicks whose style is "no style" and "skating without skating".

Man oh man, this is the first time I have ever witnessed people say that Rodney Mullen has good style.

Have you seriously seen him skate, and not said "what the fuck is with the pouncing monkey claw steez?" I guess its a preference, but dude has seriously gross style.

Anyways, onto my top 5

Gino up until 99

Keenan

Busenitz

Pappalardo

Paul Sharpe

Well...for mine I mentioned Mullen because I posted him the freestyle catagory. but yeah...his style ain't something you can watch all day...but his tricks make up for it.

...whoah...who said tony hawk had style???

just look at the early birdhouse videos...with his lanky frame and long hair..he is painful to watch....much as i respect the guy and his achievment..he does not skate with any style at all..!!

beststyle:

tom pennny:looks like he could do anything without trying,with his eyes shut..naturual..

donger lieu:power and grace....this guy is so underrated..i love the way he use to put his hands out like an eagle..afterlanding a trick

mike v:pure punk rock skate and destroy style

guy Mariano: the young mariano in video days....kiddy cool personified...ive seen mariano lately in the girl and chocolate videos...but his new bling style...doesnt do anything for me..

spencer fujimoto in love child was just so good to watch.

koston is too smooth.....too tech....doesnt have that rawness...

the young jay adams and stacey peralta had style too..

These five guys changed skating forever in one way or another. They helped make it really interesting and fun to be a skater from the late 80s to middle 90s. There were others of course, but these came to mind first.

1. Gonz--innovation, the way he did his tricks.

2. Hensley--technical yet burly at the same time.

3. Jason Lee--flowing style.

4. Mike C.--Good trick combos and style.

5. Danny Way--I'm speechless.

Honorable mention:

Phil Shao--Could do whatever he wanted (learned to skate street well in a few months).

Jason Jesse--comedy, sickest ollies and anything to fakie I've ever seen on vert.

Neil Blender--comedy; had his own lip-trick style.
