Chris Miller, 43

Miller actually retired from professional skateboarding at just 23, citing a growing family and a skate market that was a fraction of what it is today. But he never stopped skating, and it shows. Miller has run several skate companies over the past few decades, but he's also the five-time and reigning Protec Pool Party Masters Division champion. Says Flip pro Rune Glifberg: "Words can't describe the epic destruction Chris Miller has brought on concrete and vert terrain since the early '80s. In 2010, the skateboard community still rates him as one of the gnarliest skaters to walk the planet." (Photo: Bryce Kanights)
