Forbes Magazine list of higest paid in action sports

Tony Hawk tops the list with $12 million and The Flying Tomato made an estimated $9 million in 2008. Suspiciously missing from the list is Rob Dyrdek and BAM, who both make at least $1 mill per year. Skateboarding and other board sport stars on average still make a lot less than main stream sports. Tiger, Lebron, Kobe and even Michale Jordan still make well over $40 mill per year.

  3. When you think of how long Kelly Slater has been competing its amazing that he is still riding to such a high standard.
