Note that I'm a noob, and this is in Normal Blind/Draft.

So far with my top lanes vs Renekton I'm 0-11. I've tried various champions but I just can't seem to win. He dives in, stuns, spins, dives out. He's healed, farmed, and gets away unscathed while taking a chunk out of my health.

If I try to harass him back, I begin to fall behind in CS, and end up doing no damage to him since he just heals right back up. If I just try to last hit I get harassed way too much. If I try to sit back and avoid harass I just lose CS and XP while he gets nice and farmed up and gains a level or two above me.

Can anyone suggest strategies or champions to use against Renekton?

Ranged characters who can kite are generally a good start. Poke and harass are also good things to look for to counter him.

Decent counter picks (in my opinion): Riven, Kennen, Yorick

Warden's Mail and it's upgrade, Randuin's Omen, are pretty good counters, because of their large armour amounts and their MS reducing passive/active.

Outside of counter picks, you pretty much have to let him kill your first tower, so that you can just farm your lane with more ease.

My general tips:

Don't attack him when he has above 50 fury (his fury bar glows red, and he glows red)

Don't dive him at his turret when he has his ultimate, unless you have two or more people

If he just used 1 or 2 of his spells, engage on him immediately. He is decently ability dependant, and most of his spells are around the 10 second cooldown mark. (Engaging on him immediately of course implies that you use your common sense. If he obviously has the upper hand, don't do it.)

Play against him as if you were playing a 1v2 lane, don't engage, miss a little bit of farm as long as you don't die, that sort of thing.

This guide here goes pretty in depth about counters for each champion and what their counter mechanics are. I know I'm not supposed to advertise, but it does help newer players, or players that are interested in that sort of stuff.

I'm a fan of soloing as Irelia against a Renekton top. The true damage is awesome, you will outsustain him, if he dives you and you have lower health, a well timed stun will seal the kill for you, and you can push minions way faster than him. It takes practice to get used to her and use her well but once you do, not many people can beat you.
Wanna know what item is the bestest evar?! Here you go :) :)
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard and myself(:3) for the sigs!
+Rep me if I was awesome and said awesome things like i'm supposed to :D

^ Renekton beats Irelia.

Safest pick is probably Kennen but even then you need to be very careful.

Riven and Lee Sin go pretty even with him and it's probably more of a skill match-up.

Full armor Poppy can do well against him.

AD Kennen is probably the best counter vs Renekton in lane.
