Not sure how many this'll expand out to, but I figure this list should be created because I haven't been able to find any. Here's some skaters that should make the top 10-20:

Rodney Mullen (undoubtedly cemetended in as #1)
Tony Hawk (biggest name in skating)
Daewon Song
Bob Burnquist
Ryan Sheckler
Chris Cole
Paul Rodriguez
Kareem Campbell
Mark Gonzales
Steve Caballero
Danny Way
Jamie Thomas
Shawn White
Bucky Lasek
Tony Alva
Bam Margera
Mike Vallely
Erik Koston
Geoff Rowley
Tony Trujillo

Yeah, you're probably right. I'll make a top 5 now and expand from there.

Street:
1. Rodney Mullen
2. Daewon Song
3. Paul Rodriguez
4. Eric Koston
5. Chris Cole/Mike Mo Capaldi


Vert:
1. Tony Hawk
2. Bob Burnquist
3. Danny Way
4. Bucky Lasek
5. Jake Brown

Also, what criteria would you use? I was going to use the following, but I'm not sure:

Impact, Influence, Originality, Technicality

Cool to see some Cole respect. He is the fucking man. And I was always under the impression that aside from Mullen, Koston is the street god.

Wait, why is Song number two on the street list? I know he's got amazing technical abilities, but he's way behind guys like Koston, Cole, Thomas, and Rodriguez in terms of impact and influence. Also, I don't see how you can have Chris Cole above Jamie Thomas. Chris Cole just took Jamie Thomas's "do this trick but over as big a gap as possible!!!" philosophy and ran with it, but Thomas is the OG big-gap skater.

Also also, Koston and Rodriguez blow my mind. They're not quite up to par with Daewon in the tech area (manuals, grinds, ledges, etc.), but they also have more variety. They hit stairs (big ones), gaps, handrails, AND they're both pretty much as good switch as they are regular. I'd probably put the street list like this:

1. Rodney Mullen (by a fucking mile)
2. Eric Koston
3. Jamie Thomas
4. Daewon Song
5. Paul Rodriguez maybe? He's not nearly as old as any of the other guys in the top 5, so I don't know how he holds up in impact and influence, especially since I don't follow skating anymore, but he's certainly got the talent to hang with those guys.
