The beautiful thing about skateboarding is that it's an act of self expression unique to every individual who steps on a board. And while there is still more or less a standard set of tricks and variations most of us strive to perfect, some just won't settle for the "norm". Some are compelled to blaze their own trail and defy expectation. We could try to put into words what makes each of these dudes stand out, but it's better you just watch them for yourself.
