8. Erik Ellington
A trick down Carlsbad is pretty intense, so when Ellington backside bigspinned it he became a velociraptor. The Carlsbad gap gained notoriety through that On Video segment detailed how hard it was to skate. Spoiler alert, the segment is basically skaters from the late nineties talking about not landing tricks down it. After watching the video you can see why Ellington changed species after a notable trick. Thank god they tore it down.
