Ron Allen, 47

One of the original H-Street team riders and a street skating pioneer, Ron Allen continues to skate and push himself on the streets with a style that's, in a word, timeless. Organika skateboards and C1rca footwear am Walker Ryan has skated with Allen for eight years and counting: "I've come to recognize Ron as the most passionate and devoted skater that I've ever met, hands down. He's proof that skateboarding keeps your heart young and your spirits positive." (Photos: Tadashi/Dara Kerr)
