I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with skateboarding sensation Ryan Sheckler a few weeks ago.
We talked about many things including what it was like to be a star at such a young age, his plans for the future and his plans for upcoming competitions.
You can find the piece on the interview and the actual audio of it right here.
Ryan is planning on participating in the 2011 X games and is getting pretty geeked up for it, so that got me thinking about a few interesting questions.
Every star athlete got to where they are with hard work and practice obviously, but they also usually found inspiration in the greats before them.
The sport of skateboarding is filled with legendary names and iconic figures and Ryan Sheckler is quickly climbing up that list, but I was interested to know who he felt were some of the best boarders of all time.
He wanted me to stress that he believes all of these guys are great and equal in his eyes, so with that in mind let’s find out who made Ryan Sheckler’s list of the top 5 skateboarders of all time. I’ll even throw in some video so you can check out what they've got!
