Steve Caballero (born November 8, 1964, San Jose, California) is a professional skateboarder, and has been skating since 1976. Caballero began his skating career at age 12, shredding up many local skate parks. Within three years, he started to gravitate more towards the competitive side of skateboarding, placing 5th in his very first real competition. This got him noticed by Stacy Peralta, who offered to sponsor Caballero through his Powell Peralta brand. Caballero then became pro a year later, and at the end of 1999, he was recognized as the greatest skater of the 20th Century.
Caballero has been featured in five iterations of the Tony Hawk Game Series, with consecutive appearances from Pro Skater 2 up until Underground, and has recently made a return in Pro Skater HD as a downloadable skater.
