Nerdsday Thursday: How Old Are Professional Skateboarders?

Posted on Thursday, February 28, 2013 by Rob

By Rob Meronek

For this week on Nerdsday Thursday, we're going back to another age analysis, this time with pro skateboarders. Are they getting older like top am skateboarders are? Let's see.

First, let's take a look at the past winners of the last 18 years of Tampa Pro: And now in bid'niss graph form:

Some interesting points:
  • If you heard Mike V in his SPoT 20 Year interview, he mentioned that he was supposed to be "washed up" around the time the first Tampa Pro went down in 1995. He was already 24 at the time. Back then, that was old. Mike won it and it put him back in the spotlight to continue what's about to be another 20+ years of being a relevant pro in skateboarding past that point. Amazing.
  • Chris Senn won it the next year at the "old" age of 23. This year, his son Anakin, is going to skate Damn Am Costa Mesa next month. Full circle and so sick to see that.
  • A baby Andrew Reynolds then won it two years in a row while in his late teens and getting thrown in cop cars.
  • Years later in 2007, Koston won it for the second time at age 31, so far the oldest.
  • Kyle Berard is the youngest winner of Tampa Pro at 16 in 2001.
  • The most amazing contest run of all time by Dennis Busenitz went down in 2011 when he won it at age 29.
  • So, if you're in your mid to late 20's complaining about how you feel old skating, you need to just shut up and roll.
  • The average age of Tampa Pro winners over these 18 years is 22.61.
  • Average age of the first 9 years: 21.67. Average age of the last 9 years: 23.56.
  • Yes, pro skateboarders are getting older like am skateboarders. As an old guy, of course I love that stat.
Using the 391 records of Tampa Pro entry data over the years for all skaters that made it to the Semi-Finals in Tampa Pro since I started detail tracking in 2001, I've gone straight up dork status and done some further analysis:
  • The average age of pros in the Semi-Finals is 24.73. Is that higher or lower than you thought?
  • The average age prior to 2006 is 23.06.
  • The average age after 2006 is 25.49.
  • The maximum age is 41, Mike V in 2012. The minimum age is 14, Chaz Ortiz in 2009.
The data used to get the above numbers is listed here. It only includes skaters for which I have a birthdate on and therefore can calculate an age. I have an age for 72.6% of the skaters in the Tampa Pro Semi-Finals so I think this constitues fairly complete data to look at. It's sorted from youngest to oldest skaters and is pretty interesting to see as you go down the list and watch the skaters age. Thanks for sifting through another Nerdsday Thursday.
