i believe Tony Hawk. u start


tony hawk has lost his game and also is old. no one would watch him skate for 200 dollars but ronnie creager has taken a spot in the top pro skater list.
Debate Round No. 1


first off tony hawk is a incredible skater. as my source says: "at 14 he turned pro, and at 16 he was widely regarded as the best competitive skateboarder in the world. By the time he was 25, he'd competed in 103 pro contests, winning 73 of them and placing second in 19—a record that will almost certainly never be matched. He was crowned vertical skating's world champion 12 years in a row. "
what about ronnie creager? could you say the same about him?? no you couldn't. Tony Hawk is and always will be the best skateboarder this world has ever seen.
Also Tony Hawk and his company donated much money to charity. would ronnie do that? so in my opinion Tony is a better Skateboarder.

Con states "It's all about happy skating for street specialist Ronnie Creager. He got on his first skateboard at the ripe old age of four and turned pro when he was 18. That's 14 years of dialing in his skills and through it all, the biggest thing for Ronnie has been the fun element involved in his riding. Don't get us wrong, as a professional skateboarder, filming for videos, doing photo shoots, signing autographs and competing in contests is all part of the package.

Like other pros, Ronnie has to deal with an unpredictable travel schedule where he has to leave for a month on a day's notice, but such is the life of a pro rider. Still, there is nothing else that Ronnie would rather do, and when asked what he does when he's not skating, his answer: "I think about tricks that would be good in lines and find spots that look fun. My brain is thinking about skateboarding pretty much 24 hours a day."

At 31, Ronnie is a veteran in his sport but still throwing down big time. Displaying both his smooth style and technical skills, he walked away with a win and a check for $20 grand at the prestigious Globe World Cup skateboarding finals in Melbourne, Australia in 2004. He had the fans leaping out of their seats and said of the comp, "I really tried to slow it down, land my tricks and just have fun. Globe World Cup is the gnarliest competition with the greatest skaters, and there is no way I'll miss it next year." In 2003 at the Globe World Cup, he took 8th place. Getting better with age Ronnie? With an attitude like that and tons of talent, check him out if you get a chance. You might just see him taking down some more young guns."
Debate Round No. 2


even if ronnie does get better in old age, tony was way better because he was good in young age and never went down. he stayed the best so my point is still proven


hint is he was but ronnie creager is still progressing. also i would like to see tony hawk and ronnie creager play a game of skate. judged on smoothness and style. ronnie creager
