Why he's on the list: Now that Tony Hawk has retired, Sheckler may be the most prominent skateboarder on the planet. He turned pro in 2003 at the age of 14 after winning the X Games, Gravity Games, Vans Triple Crown, and Slam City Jam. He is currently the star of his own MTV reality show, The Life of Ryan, and with J.C. Penney has launched a clothing line, RS By Sheckler.
