Paul-luc Ronchetti’s Top Five: Current Skaters

After we posted Pulsar ambassador Paul-luc Ronchetti‘s top five vert picks of all time earlier this week, here’s another round bringing things up to date in the form of his top five current favourite skaters. From Raven’s all terrain charge to Madars’ fresh eye for a spot to new school vert insanity, Paul-luc is on to some winners!

Raven Tershy – Girl/Chocolate ‘Pretty Sweet’

I really enjoy watching Raven’s skating and his part was my favouriteĀ in Girl/Chocolate’s ‘Pretty Sweet’ video. He has a sick all-terrain style and probably the best Nose Grind in the biz.

Sam Beckett – Sidewalk ‘Excursion’

Apart from being good friends and growing up skating with him in the UK, Sam is one of my favourite skaters and I am always motivated when skating with him. He has crazy technical ability, quick feet and can skate everything extremely well. His recent video part was incredible and I was stoked to see him go pro last year!

Madars Apse – Element Skateboards ‘Subject Madars’

I love watching street skating because it is so technical and progresses at a very fast pace. It’s cool to watch how it goes down on the streets and try and relate it to transition. Madars Apse has a smooth, flowing style with a unique approach that gets me stoked to skate anything!

Jimmy Wilkins – Creature Skateboards ‘Jimmy Wilkins at Phishlips Ramp’

Jimmy Wilkins……enough said!

Moto Shibata – Ride Channel ‘Trannies on Ride’

It is so rad to watch and skate with Moto. Even though he is young, his style is something 80s/90s-esque and has a smooth flow to it. He has a tasteful bag of tricks and can link them together in an extremely fluid way. The dude can blast too!
