Hold on to your longboards, skateboards, penny boards and scooters, friends – it’s a big day here on the Board Blazers blog! If you have eyes in your head and wheels under your feet, you need what we’ve got. Today we bring you a full rundown of the BEST YOUTUBE ACCOUNTS FOR SKATERS! If you’re not yet staying up way too late watching skating how-to’s, longboard dancing, and freestyle jams, then you will be soon. High quality, informative and fun skate vids aren’t just for the pros anymore. Below we’ll introduce you to our favorite YouTube skaters and longboarders, and tell you why they’re going to blow your mind. Read on, bros!
Our top pick had to go to our ultra-sick and super-nice longboarder friend, Ronnie, who shreds all four seasons in Washington DC. He has an easy-to-navigate channel and uploads videos regularly (win!), so the content is always fresh! He has a bunch of honest product reviews, and his “How to & tips” playlist will help you finally land that 360 boneless on your longboard. His Vlog and Grab Bag series will give you a laugh if all you're looking for is some fun entertainment. With regular, helpful content and sick editing skills, you'll want to make sure you subscribe, so you don't miss out. Vid of the moment:
We can’t stay stateside for this list with all of the fantastic vloggers around the world! Hailing from Switzerland, Fabian has a City Trips series that gives us hardcore skate travel envy. For your viewing pleasure, he has an entire playlist devoted to single tricks (pro tip: slow the videos down to get an extra good look at exactly how to land that cab heelflip noseslide to backside!). Bonus points to Fabian for having some ultra-legit footage come from his quadcopter; it's worth tuning in just for this, guys. The cherry on top of the cake here is his series featuring Clement Zannini, a one-legged skater (Yep, you read that right) who shreds like you WON’T BELIEVE. Go check Fabian out right now.

Here we take a bit of a hard right turn. Sara’s channel isn’t exclusively skate related. While she LOVES skating (gets around NYC on her many boards) and does feature regular skate videos, she posts about style, travel, humor and many other topics as well. Her photography skills are legit incredible, and it's worth tuning in just for her shots in and around NYC alone. If you’re a gear junkie, you won’t want to miss her tech reviews. If it's technology you can use to skate, you can bet Sara has an unboxing and review video that you’ll want to see. She’s a phenomenal artist, creative, and young entrepreneur. If you’re trying to build your own skate empire, hers is a must-subscribe channel. Vid of the moment:
One of the queens of longboarding as far as we’re concerned, Natalie's channel is rock solid. While she’s super sweet and friendly, she’s also in possession of some rock-solid skate skills. She features a whole series on travel skating, which is a bucket list item for just about every skater we know. Her Q&A sessions are relatable and raw, which we love. And what skating YouTube channel is complete without some freestyle jams? Natalie has plenty of them. Don’t miss out - subscribe to her channel. Vid of the moment:
We here at Board Blazers have long admired Nick and his radness. His longboard dancing videos will have you mesmerized, and if you need any help mimicking his moves, he’s got a whole series of Trick Tips to help you out. He has incredible skills and loves to share them – even starting a Challenge series, which is a must see. And if you’re looking for ultra-real and unfiltered content, hit up his Day In The Life series, you’ll love it. Vid of the moment:
Headed to Europe again with this next YouTube king, Hans. Hailing from Belgium, his is an ultra robust channel. Looking to break into longboarding? His How I Started series is perfect for you. Don't miss his L.O.N.G.B.O.A.R.D. video expanding on the iconic S.K.A.T.E. game! His Story Time will have you rolling, and don’t worry; he’s heavy on freestyle content too. Plus the settings for his vids are often gorgeous European cities – it makes watching a feast for the eyes. Vid of the moment:
Dude’s got STYLE. From his content to his photography, Lotfi is refreshingly original. He inspires us to be like him: coming up with something totally fresh and utterly unique. His videos are super short and easy to watch with crazy cool settings like the subway! With his dope rhythm skills, make sure you don't miss his longboard dancing vids. Vid of the moment:
