The Skateboarding Hall of Fame Executive Committee guides the future of the SHOF. The committee includes; Todd Huber, executive director of SHOF; this year’s inductee David Hackett; past SHOF inductees, Lance Mountain, Steve Olson, Laura Thornhill-Caswell and Jim Muir; and Thomas Barker, IASC’s executive director.

“Skateboarding reveals itself not only by the people it produces but the people it honors, the people it remembers. We are proud to bring you the 2018 Skateboarding Hall of Fame Induction Class,” Barker said. “They are individuals, they are influencers, they are people that shaped our culture, they are skateboarders, and now they are Skateboarding Hall of Fame Inductees.”

Created in 2009, The Skateboarding Hall of Fame recognizes and honors the history of skateboarding and influential figures who have significantly shaped skateboarding and its culture throughout the years. Selection for the Skateboarding Hall of Fame isn't wholly determined by seasons, contest results or stats. Above all else, innovation, influence and creativity are honored as the drivers at the heart of skateboarding’s constant evolution.
