Skateboarders

A skateboarder is a person who practices the action sport of skateboarding. In the recent years, skateboarding has emerged as a popular recreational activity and the sport will be represented at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. There are various renowned skaters who have helped to popularize the sports. Among these, the name of Anthony Frank Hawk stands out. Highly talented and flexible, Hawk is considered by many to be one of the most successful and influential pioneers of modern vertical skateboarding. He is also well known for completing the first documented 900. Another famous skater is Nyjah Imani Huston, who is the highest paid skateboarder in the world. When talking of famous skaters, how can we miss the name of Rodney Mullen? Not only is he an exceptionally talented skater, but also the inventor of the backside flip, 360 flip, and one-footed Ollie among others. Skating is a sport equally popular among both men and women. Some female skaters who have made a name for themselves in the field are Janette Ahrens, Tenley Albright, Lisa-Marie Allen, and Katherine Healy.
