Tas Pappas
One of the first names that come to mind when thinking of Australia’s skateboarding stalwarts is Tas Pappas. Renown as one of skateboarding’s greatest vert skaters, his reputation over the past couple decade has been marred by controversy, namely drug use. Arguments between him and Tony Hawk about the 900 have drawn attention from the skateboarding community.  However, Tas has recently seemed to take a more humble approach to this feud and a positive outlook on life in general.

We hope to see some new skate footage from him soon!

Dustin Dollin
One of the wildest street skaters to come from down below, Dustin has been calling the U.S. home since he burst into skateboarding’s mainstream in the early 2000s. He remains a strong force in skateboarding and still rides for Baker Skateboards.

Poppy Starr Olsen
Australia’s brightest female star may very well be Poppy Starr Olsen. Given her tournament successes and remarkable ambition, some are predicting that she’ll be representing her country in the 2020 Olympics when skateboarding is introduced.
