Other than the obvious mainstream guys, are there any skaters who are good and/or have good style that you just can't get into but everyone else seems to like them?

Sean Malto - He's way too repetitive for me; nollie flips, nosegrinds, crooked grinds, overcrooks, switch flips, he just bores me. Plus he crouches so fucking low, I just don't find him very fun to watch.

Mike Taylor - although he isn't repetitive and I see nothing wrong with his style, it just seems kind of generic really, I've never really been tempted to watch new footage from the guy.

There are no widely accepted skaters cause skating is a matter of point of view.

If you ask 20 people who is their favourite skater you will prolly get more than 15 different answers.

Personally i dont like one-sided skaters. Skaters who only skate ledges doin tech tricks or do massive gaps and rails only or just pool skaters. I think skateboarding is like urban exploit and you have to exploit every obstacle that is on your way not just a small portion of them. So there are a bunch of skaters who are one sided and i dont like them even if they are the best in the area of their expertise.

Tony Hawk seems overhyped at times.

Not too psyched on Mikey Taylor either.  Generic yes.  There are lots of dudes that I'm less than enthused about.  But I think it's pretty cool that there are so many people getting hooked up these days.  I like it how style and personality are winning out from time to time over raw skill.

Really!?  Well, I'm all about the dork tricks, but I'm not crazy about RJ in the slightest.

Kellen James on the other hand is amazing!  He has the best trick selection and so much steeze!

To each his own...

mike v has sucked since ocean drive part dropped, that part was good, then he had 411 section about his backyard wreslting career and then when that didnt pan out he had a section on playing fucking beer league hockey like it was serious. then he dropped liek 4 autobiographies. i just dont see how there are so many fans of this guy like dont peopel get sick of seeing the same thing over and over again? maybe its jsut the backyard pool dad demographic thats keepin him goin, hes probably got that dialed.
