0218 Action-Sports 03 Ryan-ShecklerThe more we follow the financial press and see the way they operates the funnier stories like this become. Forbes has released a list of the highest paid action sports athletes and they base their numbers on completely on “interviews with industry experts.” In other words, your guess is as good as Forbes.

The experts are saying that Tony Hawk made $12 million last year and that put him in the number one position. Shaun White was number two at $9 million, Ryan Sheckler was number three at $5 million.

As Skateboardworks.com says: “Suspiciously missing from the list is Rob Dyrdek and BAM, who both make at least $1 mill per year.” Makes us wonder what “experts” they actually talked to.
