Daniel Castillo is probably the worst pro ever. He could basically only skate manual pads and flat ground.

Shane Heyl’s board always seemed like an honorary thing, but his name was still on a board in place of someone else so I guess you have to include him too.

I just re-watched Gareth Stehr’s That’s Life part, and it was better than I remember. That being said, he basically just recycles the same 8-10 tricks over and over and has really terrible style unless he was jumping down something big.

So I guess those are my 3.

I think a lot of these answers here are way off the mark and are more "political" than what the thread is asking. I was thinking of pros who don't skate at a pro level and have more to do with image.

Ben Kadow. And I kind of like him.

Austin Stephens.

Revive has obvious offenders.

There are other ones I could list but everyone would be uncomfortable.

Steve Saiz had an all-time classic graphic, but he might be the least impressive pro for Powell in the Bones Brigade era

Now look-- I think Sinner is a fried moron with a pile of horseshit for a brain just as much as the next guy-- but to claim he never ripped is a bit disingenuous.

Was Daniel Castillo ever pro?

I’d say Justin Eldridge has been a pretty bad pro.  He was an for Yeah Right and Hot Chocolate and he hasn’t done much for the nearly 20 years his name has been on a board.

crazy I forgot about eldgrige. thats a good one. craigtap must have poured shit ton of cash into riders who just freeloaded off them for a well over a decade plus. in the end only to be responsible for still paying guys like him and crab to make small talk 20 years later

Simon Woodstock; always thought he was just kooky as shit
Lizard King  Antwuan Dixon; talk about a waste of talent, also that cancer IG post after Huf passed was really fucking stupid and selfish we shouldn’t forgive him for that one.
Andy Roy; oh my where to start with this loud mouth shit stain of a person, honestly if weren’t for his epicly later’d and his association with 1010 I’d have left him alone, but Nazi sympathizers and disease spreading dipshits get no cheese from me.
I know I know it’s a hot take and I’ll gladly take the L on this one. I see it like this if you squandered a chance to earn and make something out of yourself and be apart of the cool kids club and fuck it off, you deserve to be a little ostracized in some capacity. Not Braille status but maybe an Element milking it status.

Kevin White, Shane Hayle, Ben Kadow. All have some sick footy and enjoyable, definitely just pro cause of their connections though

Hell no. I saw a John hill video the other day called “going pro made me depressed” and just laugh cause of the disillusion.


Top 3 this current gen tho? Nak, aiden, Sean pablo. Kevin white runner up. None of these guys are pro talent wise and especially not compared to their team mates. I get why they’re pro but seeing them skate in person annoys the shit out of me.

A lot of 2000s guys never felt pro to me but they were all hold overs from the 90s.

its the crailtap tenure program.  if you're their buddy, you stay on for as long as you can tolerate it.  he's definitely had his contract renewed at several points by now.  i don't get what keeping him on and paying him as a pro does for the company.   chris roberts i get to an extent bc of the Nine Club and name recognition, but it still seems goofy to me.  he's not some charismatic star the target demo just can't get enough of

Don't think he had a board, but Eric Sanderson was pro for Powell and was less impressive than Saiz.

Rick Jaramillo cause his videoparts were under the standards of that era ( planet earth Silver- 411 profile )


Caesar Singh just cause he got lots of potential in terms of style and trix selection ( amazing part in Silver planet earth), but seems he wasn't able to take vantage from his gift and his career falling a part, even because he was surrounded by the wrong manager ( read his intw on chrome ball).

josh Kasper, a weirdo.

Chris Branagh, ofcourse.

i entered this thread to say rick jaramillo.  that is a no brainer. 

#2 and 3 are josh harmony and sean powers.  fuck listing people you dont like or people who may have been complicit in the murder a gay man. 

i only want to see terrible skill x turned pro by a legit company

Sean Powers is not a pro, a this point l would say Blondie: an average skater, which Adidas gave him a pro shoe instead to DAewon.
