List Rules Vote up the best street skaters of all time.

From the top pros of the '90s to today's young up and comers, the best street skaters of all time encompass all types of skateboarders. While skateboarding came to rise throughout the 1970s with Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, and the rest of the Z Boys, it was until the '90s when street skating really began to take shape. In the years since, this side of skateboarding has progressed beyond any skater's belief. The top street skaters push the boundaries daily, from hitting the biggest handrails to charging the longest and tallest gaps. Names like Andrew Reynolds, Jamie Thomas, and Nyjah Huston all come to mind here, as they're some of the best skaters to ever hit the big stuff, as well as the best skateboarders of all time, period.

Of course, it's not all about the most stairs and longest rails. There's the technical side of street skating as well. Lucas Puig, Daewon Song, and Mike Mo Capaldi, among many others, have all proven themselves to be the most technical and skilled street skaters. Whether it's ledges and manual pads or gaps and rails, however, it's all street skateboarding. So, who are the best street skaters of all time? 

Check out the list of street skaters below and vote up the best of them. Feel free to add other skaters to the list, so long as they're primarily street skaters.
