The Boardr Global Skateboarding Rankings Update for July
Published 7/26/2023 by Rob Meronek
Another summer month has gone by which means a ton of events. This month, it’s been everything from large events like X Games, World Skate Rome, and Tony Hawk Vert Alert to smaller and regional ones like Damn Am, Canada Skateboard Open, Best Foot Forward, and Mind the Gap.
First up, let’s look at Women’s Street up and comers. Lore Bruggeman didn’t make the top 20 at World Skate Rome to earn any points, but she did well at Mystic Cup and bumped up 12 places to 36th right now. Besides X Games recently, Leticia Bufoni hasn’t entered a contest in a year, contributing to her 11 place decline to currently 41st. Right below her in 42nd is Liv Border who bumped up 7 places from her performance at Mystic Cup.
On the Men’s Street side, we have over 200 new skaters in the Rankings. Santino Exenberger from Austria blew it at World Skate Rome but then did well at Mystic Cup and won Damn Am Netherlands, moving himself up 16 places to 32nd right now.
In Women’s Park, Mizuho Hasegawa from Japan got 2nd at X Games, bringing her up 13 spots to 17th place. Other large jumps farther down the list include Lilly Strachan who moved up 53 places to 46th this month, did well at World Skate San Juan and won Mystic Cup.
In Men’s Park, Oskie jumped way up to 32nd after boosting 34 spots from making the Finals at X Games. Yam Behar and Viktor Solmunde saw large jumps from their skating at Mystic Cup, both breaking into the top 100 this month.
Let’s talk about Vert this month, too. With Tony Hawk’s Vert Alert having that open component, they’re really giving it the platform and exposure it deserves. There are currently 127 ranked in Women’s Vert with Bryce Wettstein in the top spot. Arisa Trew is quickly closing in at 2nd right now, recently moving up 4 places from winning X Games AND Vert Alert. Arisa is also the most searched profile on the site this month.
In Men’s Vert, who else is ever going to be in a much deserved top spot besides Jimmy Wilkins? Eddie Damestoy has been keeping up, though, narrowing the gap in 2nd.

We’re back with another Global Rankings update. With a few weeks going by, there has been a long list of events going down all over the world that have moved people up and down the ranks.
We’re back with another Global Rankings update after a bunch of contests like GFL, Far n High, X Games, CASL, and Best Foot Forward went down this weekend. New to the reports is a 30 Day Change column showing how you’ve moved up or down in the last month.
What I’m showing you today is a new technology I developed for scoring a skateboard contest. Right now, skateboard judging is 100% subjective. I want an option that makes it more objective, easier for a non-expert audience to understand, has more accountability, and of course is more fair to the skaters.
Before we dive into the ups and downs of The Boardr Global Rankings this month, we're taking a look at the history of last place and how some of your favorite skateboarders end up there. Last place can mean a lot of things, and most likely, it's not because you're an awful skateboarder.
We dove into our data stack to analyze a decade of prize money earnings in skateboarding and how it evolved from women earning just 8% and Japan earning 0% way back in 2015.
