Ezekiel "Zeke" Thatcher: About 15 years old. Best friend to Luther, older brother to Ginger, his first job was delivering Don's Donuts. He is the generally smarter and more serious guy of the group. His biggest weakness however is his crush on Olivia Masterson, his next door neighbor. She models for "Langley Olives" He and Luther are now sponsored by "Liver Nubs".
Luther Jerome Waffles: About 15 years old. Best friend to Zeke, cup stacking champion, he can be a bit of an airhead sometimes and is an excessive gamer. He also used to have an armpit hair named Gordon. He adopted a rat that "Jumpsuit" Johnson captured, and named it Lucky. Lucky is both his pet and good luck charm. He and Zeke are now sponsored by "Liver Nubs".
Ginger Thatcher: Zeke's younger sister who is 11 years old. In the episode "Bros Go Pro" , she uses the boys to make money. She is a bit smart, but constantly looks for ways to torture Zeke, like telling Olivia he liked her and ratting Zeke and Luther out when they hid in "Bros Go Pro". She also has a habit for making stands such as a falafel stand in "Pilot" and a lemonade stand in "Bros Go Pro". She's also an accomplished flautist as shown in "Skate Camp" and in the episode "Luck Be a Rodent Tonight" by spraying Zeke with a water bottle when ever he did something stupid.
Cornelius "Kojo" Jonesworth: Age 16 (has a motorcycle). A friend to Zeke and Luther but also a rival for the reputation of best skater in town. He is full of himself to the point of him having his own calender. He is sponsored by "Dastardly Skate". It is revealed in "Luck Be a Rodent Tonight" that the name of his mom is Nancy. He also thinks he is a better skater than both Zeke and Luther. When something goes well for him he'll usually say "Watch out!", and then attempts to slap his behind.
Lisa Grubner: A young geeky girl about age 13 who has a massive crush on Zeke. She has her own house next to her parents house the size of a doll house. In "Donut Jockey" she continually ordered doughnuts from Don's Donuts in order to see Zeke, who eventually figured out her crush and let her down easy by telling her he was into older girls. She showed up at Don's Donuts the next day wearing glasses and saying she's turning 13 1/2 and will be an older woman (and that she likes June weddings). She's also an accomplished flautist and tumbler and developed a friendship/rivalry with Ginger in "Skate Camp".
Olivia Masterson: Formerly the olive girl for the "Langley Olives" company, she's currently Zeke's next door neighbor and crush. She tried designing him a skater look in "Cape Fear" but only for it to fail, mainly to a large cape that became a safety hazard. It is noted that she has a crush on zeke. She still doesn't know if he likes her. She is said to like brave guys
Ozzie Kephart: Local power walker, caterpillar enthusiast, and all around weirdo. He used to hate skateboarding but recently became a skater, the first sport he didn't quit after a day, although he's not very good.
"Donut" Don Donaldson: Owner and propriter of Don's Donuts, Zeke and Luther's favorite hangout. In "Luther Leads" Luther called Don a donuthead because he finally realized that he is the only one that works at Don's Donuts and also realized that he's always employee of the month every month (because he's the only one who works at Don's Donuts.)
Reginald "Jumpsuit" Johnson: Zeke and Luther's cranky ex-astronaut neighbor who commonly throws away old space stuff in the trash and has a gravity simulator in his garage. His nickname is because of the fact that he wears a jumpsuit every day.
Garrett "Stinky Cast" Delfino: Local boy camera man who constantly wears the same sleeveless white shirts, jean shorts, and trademark cast. He's Zeke and Luther's camera guy. He has a huge crush on Ginger which Zeke uses as leverage to pay for Stinky Cast's videos. He had his cast removed in "The Big Red Stacking Machine" which he was upset about due to losing his trademark. He then proceeded to try to injure himself to get a new cast and succeeded, thus restoring his name.
