Ben Koppl.
I wanted to film him a bit, but couldnít.
I was too busy laughing at how ridiculous the stuff he was doing with ease was, and the just when you think itís over, he goes somewhere totally unexpected and takes it up a notch.

Busenitz is insane in reality.

Went to an emerica demo round 2012 and the whole team was amazing but Leo was another level. I think what surprised me the most was just that he could easily put out a low impact ledge/tech part as well as huck a lot more flip tricks but he just doesnít care to film them. Almost every big handrail trick that was insane on their own included him doing some perfect flip trick down a seven and/or grinding a long ledge at insane speeds right before but he didnít care to film any of that just the gnarly handrail trick.
Any dude that hates on roller hockey hasn't played, and likely haven't played a sport in their entire life.

I've never met a pro skater or somebody who is good enough in real life. Then I would say one of my friends who is better than me.

Roman Gonzalez, was skating a spot in Marseille and he randomly pulled up with a few friends and was so effortlessly doing the most unique ledge tricks. Super nice guy too.

I got to watch Zered skate that little park in Greenpoint when it was just him and me. He was hucking some high fucking switch flips off the little transitioned hip or whatever is in the middle. Powerful kickflips too, well over my head. He was pretty non-chalant and I didn't realize it was him until he started launching so high
If my rep is ever an even number, please kindly throw me either a kook or a gnar in order to return me to my odd number equilibrium.

I've posted this story a thousand times and will probably never stop, but I saw Dennis Busenitz skate Tampa Pro the year he won and it was like witnessing actual magic.

Tom Asta
No doubt. I ran into him a couple of times at a park and it was amazing seeing just him skating flatground for every trick was popped and flawless. Mike Mo was the same way at a demo I saw. Also seeing skaters with great style sticks out to me as well. Chany Jeanguenin, Asta, Alex Olson, Jason Spivey, Myles Willard all left a mark from seeing them skate

Seen many of the greats in person but one that really stood out for me was Paul Rodriguez. It was unreal how consistent he was.

Shane O'Neil was unbelievably good, P-Rod very clean but not as technically impressive.

Forrest Edwards was also really good, except he squated, grabbed his board and stuck his tounge out after every trick he landed and he was landing shit first try so it got a bit goofy

Tent City era Trujillo.

Barged crazy lines first try, did a bunch of wild transfers no one had ever even considered doable.

I saw Roman lisivka at bcn back in 2015 and again at stalin plaza in 2018.
best line I saw of him was: nollie nosegrind kickiflip out (mid ledge), nollie inward heel fs nose, turn around, switch tre, fakie 5-0 kickflip out (mid ledge too) dude kills it,

also stalin ledges are perfect but rough, he made them look easy as hell

One of the more recent Emerica tours, 2020 i think? they had a demo at Jefferson Park in Seattle. Kind of a weird park for a demo, but the bowl session was mad.

Watched Winkowski fuck up the deep end with EASE - pocket airs, ho-ho for way too long, eggplants, inverts, etc. Watched him teach Nolan Johnson how to do those drop-ins with the wheels on the deck, that was pretty cool.

The other team members were rad, but pretty standard fanfare (FS Flips, rail chomping). Reynolds got a FS air in the deep end, which kinda felt like seeing a shiny Pokemon.

I feel like Iím blanking on some crazier things but a memory that always pops in my head is that around 2012-2014 David graveyte would often pull up to my local on like a Tuesday afternoon and go p much straight into battling some super od skatepark hero trick until basically everyone was watching him - he would rage too. He was really nice if u came up to him tho so I canít complain was always entertaining to watch aswell. J such a wierd vibe though Iíd never pull up to a park full of groms and look for the biggest jump to huck over and over and then j leave once I land it - I guess thatís the style of skating he films tho but even then I feel other heshers donít go so hard on there off time - almost stupid imagine if he broke his ankle tryna be a skatepark hero right before a tour or something

Many, but I remember being stoked at Frank Hirata's run at some triple crown skateboarding in San Diego in 98.

John Rattray -  he hands down destroyed the Zero demo in El Paso '01 with that stalefish transfer at carolina park. No one else on the team attempted anything on it.

The people who I have heard in person say that Grant is the best they've seen while watching him-
Reynolds (and Nuge)
Koston
Phelps
Ishod

Which is pretty high praise but I saw peak Templeton and peaking Rowley just destroy all of Huntington Beach years ago so I am going with that.

You can add Jason Lee to that list.
