List Rules Movies must have skateboarding as a main component.

Skateboarding movies aren't all about dudes and bros seeking out empty pools; they're about buddies and sport and weed, too. This list of the best skateboarding movies includes comedy, action, and drama movies that feature skateboarding as a theme. These are top films about skateboarding, both new and old. If you believe we've left a great skateboarding film off of this list then please feel free to add it to the list yourself. Skateboarding is a relatively new sub-genre, with the sport itself not really taking off until the last few decades.

What are the best skate movies? The movies on this list exhibit some of the best skateboarders around, doing things with their skateboards that seem to defy physics. Half-pipes, rail slides, you name it. If you love riding your skateboard, then these skate movies are for you.
