In speed freaks rob roskopp had a single of a fakie Ollie decker on a mini ramp . Iím always triggered by how revered his board graphics are , by how badly he sucked .

And despite all his accomplishments Rodney has always aesthetically looked the worst on a skateboard . Unwatchable.

If you watch planet earth silver, almost the 50percent of the team is fucked up, apart  Kenny Andenerson, Jason King ( very nice part and low profile pro ), Caesar and Jowy Bast. I'm not wonder if the company died few years later.

In terms of productivity falling off a cliff when they turn from Am to Pro, then I would say Jake Duncombe.

He had some heavy shit leading up to that. Dumb note: I always call him Jake Dumb Cum.  It's stupid but makes me laugh

Rick J was at least twice as good as Dave Duren

Jeff Grosso's part is him getting his eyebrows shaved and then by his own admission a really mediocre run because he was hung over and had no eyebrows. Grosso's career read's like an anti drug PSA.

Brent Atchley are you serious? The dude flows like a cold drink on a summer afternoon. You're tripping.

He was a one hit wonder for sure, but he made an impact in his short career. I still love this song because of this part.

Brent Atchley is probably my favorite skateboarder ever, so it pains me to see him mentioned here, but I get it. If you can define being a "bad" pro as aligning with mediocre brands, not living in LA, not promoting yourself or kissing up to the right people, then sure he's a bad professional.

glad to see some names mentioned here that I agree with, but was wondering if I was being too harsh. I guess not

Shaun White takes the cake, surely?
He has a face I want to punch whenever I see it.
Jason Jessee is just a terrible human being, with a short burst of progressive vert skating that lasted all of, what? Six months? Then he broke his leg, became a total pussy and dove fully into the mormon lifestyle of guilt and meth.               
Gator was an amazing skateboarder, to see him skate in person was something. But rape, murder, prison and personality just takes any accomplishments on his board away instantly, leaving only a puddle of blood and shit and sweat and yoga and broccoli.

the program with this goddamn thread is that it was never said how we're judging pros.

aesthetic? personality? ability on a skate board? all 3 lead to wildly different answers.

There is a case to be made that he was a bad pro because he would never wear the sponsors clothing, etc that he was given - according to Carroll, so he might be a bad professional, but by NO metric is he a bad skateboarder

Have we said Duane yet? Duane is a fucking embarrassment to skating and punk
Some of those kids that who were pro for neighborhood in the mid 90s weren't actually that good...

who the fuck put Leo Valls on their list?
Prawn Powers was never pro and I guess that's his only redeeming quality

Maybe you guys can pick up to three in each category and then go back to the stickied Wellness and Outreach Support thread and pretend you're not hypocrites.

I mean you'd think Richie Jackson would get big X's in all of those boxes but some people's aunties on Facebook would strongly disagree.

I always wondered how he was pro for bombing a footpath & skating a ditch to shit music, but people were pro for contests at the time, not videos. Never really heard of him at the time though, asides from his board series.

Roskopp was before my time, but I think if you go through 80's Thrashers or Transworlds, you can see why he was regarded as one of the top pros during that time. Not only was he in the contests pages winning, he had tons of ads and he looks fucking awesome on those photos. Plus he was also a early street skater in addition to vert.

There's bunch of other answers here too that I don't get and like I understand why people wouldn't like Dyrdek in 2021, but he was super loyal to AWS for a long time and looked good on a skateboard, so I wouldn't call him "the worst" in any means.

Dyrdek fucking ripped when he was on vans, he used to come and do tours in Australia and just murder all our spots!
