About the Skateboarding Hall of Fame
The Skateboarding Hall of Fame was created to honor the passion and dedication to skateboarding–and contributions to its history and culture–by pro skateboarders and industry / cultural icons throughout the decades. Since 2009, the skateboarding community has come together each year in Southern California for an induction ceremony to honor and celebrate the latest inductees.
Skateboarding Hall of Fame Executive Committee
In 2016, the Skateboarding Hall of Fame Executive Committee was formed to oversee and guide the direction of the Skateboarding Hall of Fame. The SHOF Executive Committee is made up of Lance Mountain, Jim Muir, Laura Thornhill-Caswell, Steve Olson, Dave Hackett, Todd Huber, Glen E Friedman and Thomas Barker. Each one came to the committee due to the passion they have for the SHOF and the history of skateboarding.
The Skateboarding Hall of Fame official ballot is created from the tallied results of a vote by the Skateboarding Hall of Fame Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee is made up of 68 people from all time periods of skateboarding who either were pro skateboarders, worked in the industry or in skateboarding media. Everyone on the committee has firsthand experience with the people they are nominating because they were there. All Skateboarding Hall of Fame inductees are also added to the nomination committee.
The official Skateboarding Hall of Fame ballot is then sent to a list of 400 current and former skateboarding professionals, the Skateboarding Hall of Fame Nomination Committee, past Skateboarding Hall of Fame inductees, members of the media and members of the skateboarding industry. The voting totals from this vote then become each year’s induction class.
