Least talented pro skater

I know someone is gonna say Nyjah or someone who is actually really good, but I want your opinion. Which pro has the least amount of actual ability on a skateboard and why.


I'll start it off: Sean Pablo.

I think Sean has his place in pro skateboarding. He's a big influence on people and he is actually a good skateboarder.
He does good tricks with good style.
I think a skateboarder who doesn't have "talent" is a skateboarder with no creativity.
There's fucking plenty of those

I think you're missing the point of this thread I didnt say "Least creative skater" to me talent means actual ability.

I played Ben Gilley in a handful of games of SKATE around 2005-2006 and I skunked him every single time. I am only above average.

Terry Kennedy was able to 5-0 handrails after only a year of skating

10+ years later he's still just able to 5-0 handrails

Pretty sure he posted a clip of a 50 50 on a skatepark hubba.

Are games of skate really talent defining? I feel like a lot of 14 year old kids could be a lot if pros in skate.

Maybe you're unfamiliar with Ben Gilley but a game of skate is absolutely telling of his ability on a skateboard.

If you exclude “washed up” pros who are no longer at their peak I think Sean Pablo takes it pretty easily based on what he puts out, but I feel like he has some hidden variety off camera

Is Shawn Powers pro? He would be in the running

Daryl Angel isn’t the least talented but I don’t think he ever put out anything exceptionally good

I dont think you should be able to do every single flatground trick as a pro, but you should have at least the basics down.

Daniel Castillo was never that great. I guess he was am for 15 years and barely pro for 2 and it's obvious why.

least talented and least skilled are two very different conversations.  there are a lot of pros who were naturally talented but refused to put the work in and grow their skill set.  there are some guys who were never particularly talented but worked their fucking asses off.   also the answer is shane heyl and i don't mean that in an insulting way at all.  dude worked his fucking ass off to be pro i've always respected that.

Ben Gilley 5-0 el toro 1st and 2nd try back when it meant life or death to skate that. He also was the first to skate murrilans 21 and 14. He skated 21 rails in lines.

Hes also one of the best human beings on earth off the board.

i vote Sean Pablo too.

Ben is a very nice person who went pro to bring some Zero market share over to Black Label and that's the only reason.

Least talented?  probably Dan Pensyl. In a good way though.  All heart and love in his tricks.
You could tell he worked his ass of for his tricks and some look like he is barely hanging on, but that is the reason I love his skating. Made me want to go skate and try harder.
