Skateboarders, unlike many of the stars from much older sports, were quick to embrace Instagram after it debuted in 2010. As a result, the Top Ten on the photo-sharing app, in terms of followers, reads like a who’s who from the skating history.

QUEENS OF SKATEBOARDING

Topping the list is Brazilian street skater Leticia Bufoni, a five=time X Games gold medalist who is a favorite to add to her medal collection at the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Queens of Skateboarding: Leticia Bufoni, Sky Brown, Lizzie Armanto tops in followers on Instagram

Distantly following Bufoni in terms of followers are preteen sensation Sky Brown, who was born in Japan, but will skate for Great Britain in the Olympics, and Santa Monica-based Lizzie Armanto, who sports dual citizenship in United States and Finland.
