Steve Saiz had an all-time classic graphic, but he might be the least impressive pro for Powell in the Bones Brigade era
[close]
Don't think he had a board, but Eric Sanderson was pro for Powell and was less impressive than Saiz.

You sure about that? I was a total Powell fanboy in those days and I donít remember this. Who goes pro for Powell and doesnít get a board?

In any case, you are right. Sanderson would be the worst

Andrew Brophy, not strictly skill wise but in terms of output he's way worse than Eldridge

Same thing that happens in any thread like this

"What is the best video ever made?"

"Shoutout to Feed the Need because it was the first video my mum bought for me"

Mike V, full of himself
Berra, full of himself and a scientologist
Aaron kyro, scientologist

Bonus round: Bastien, so skilled but just always fell short due to his personal issues, the only dude who let me down for over a decade.
.....Nah

Far from relevant

I sureeee wouldnt put bastien and fall off in the same sentence and the absolute last place his name needs to be is in this thread.

Hes the energy filled self hype guy on a skateboard, but what appears to be the complete opposite off of it. Hard to maintain that on off switch vibe in any field of work.

Dude dropped a part in a hell of an era, and then matured.

You just canít handle Austin Stephens beauty cuz he ripped pre acl injury https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NZmMEdiRl8g


Also Josh harmony is way better than Dan pague Aaron kyro and David loy. There are a lot of skaters far worse than Josh harmony. Gareth steher does suck. I think Iím better than him and I suck

Are we talking skill or personality? Sinner either way

I'm assuming we mean skill wise, so Danny Way can't be on here.
Corey O'Brien had one of the best selling models on Santa Cruz in their heyday and I don't think he skated anything but curbs and mini ramps.  Cool 80s hair though.
Eric Sanderson is a good choice for this category.
Lizard King for modern suckage.

Would like to amend this (barely) and swap Lizard King out for Jerry Gurney.  Absolute worst.

Austin was the only one who didnít abandon Toy Machine when all their riders fled.  Iím fine with him being kept around for a little.  Itís not like he was taking anyoneís spot

Kevin hufflepuff - weird name, few if any legitimate sponsors, somehow ended up in street league

Brophy is a good mention. Dude doesnít put out anything ever. He can Ollie high and did a nice looking tre over a rail 15 years ago though.

A lot of people going the personality route vs skill. The latter is what the thread's intention was IMO. To say that Nak isn't skating on a pro level is delusional, his clips in Blessed are insane. Pro kook though.

Agreed on Kevin White, C-Rob, and Felix Arguelles.

Nah. Lizard rips. The few times I saw him skate demos he went harder than everybody. I respect the hell out of that.

I feel like he never actualized his full potential, maybe I'm wrong. But the immense feeling of being let down is why I put his name here. Just a personal pick.

Bam Margera - in terms of talent he should not have sold that many boards

Dustin Dollin - should have just been a video hype man

Ali Boulala - accidentally killing Shane Cross aside he was clearly phoning it in most of the time already

Yea, I was super surprised to see Brent Atchley and Duffy mentioned.

I sort of get Nak, but Sean Pablo and Ben Kadow are way more questionable.
