We are in interesting times right now where many YouTubers are experiencingÂ demonetizationÂ and are losing their income from videos for their content. The world is changing and just as quickly as myspace came and Facebook overtook it we will witness many avenues of social media become lapped by the “newer” thing. Â However, as it stands right now what are the top 4 most viewed skateboard related youtube videos? The resultsÂ may come as both a surprise and an assumed outcome.
4. TONY HAWK RIDES THE WORLDS FIRST HOVERBOARD
This video came at a point in time when alot of technology was breaking through including drones to the mass market. This hoverboard ill admit was not excatly what I had hoped when I clicked on the video the first time but the word hoverboard was enough click bait for me to be a contributor of a view to this video. The technology has improved since this video and Tony Hawk is a legend and always will be. Still entertaining and worth a viewing. The video currently stands at 17 Million + views.
3. TONY HAWK SKATES FIRST DOWNWARD SPIRAL LOOP
Now I dont just say this because my first sponsor was actually Birdhouse and I got to meet Tony in my youth as one of his Birdhouse flow kids but honestly the Birdman is a cool dude. A legend who has done so much for skateboarding but above all a skateboarder who to this day pushes the boundaries and still has the motivation to progress. I have loads of respect for his determination to push skateboarding to greater heights even in his later years. This downward spiral was nuts and I applaud from my chair as I watch Tony make history. Interesting note the “Downward Spiral” I feel could even be a homage to the band Nine Inch Nails to whom Tony is also a fan of! Pretty awesome. Â The Downard Spiral lands Tony in at 19+ Million views.
2. SKATEBOARDING DOG
Yup Tillman the skateboarding English Bulldog is the 2nd most viewed skateboard related video on youtube. We have all seen this talented canine do his thing and look back at our very own dog in hopes of training them to at least stand on the board. Sadly Tillman passed away in 2015 but his memory and talent live on forever in this video showcasing his skateboarding skills. Skateboarding Dog has over 22 million views to date!
- BEST OF RODNEY MULLEN
The skate god himself Rodney Mullen has the most video on youtube in the category of skateboarding with a whopping 23 million plus views. This video is a compilation of his skateboard clips throughout the years. Watching this makes me crave a new Rodney Mullen video part. We actually havent had a new “full length” Mullen part since Almost round 3. Heres to crossing our fingers they make a round 4 video down the line. Watch his technical prowess and enjoy great skateboarding.
