2012 Covers Poll

It was a year of epic fronts, from legends like MJ and D Way to young bucks like Trevor Colden and Dane Burman. Which was your favorite cover of 2012?

January: Lakai or die—KOTR Blood runs deep when it's all on the line. Photo: Brook

February: The nicest guy with the scariest demeanor: Peter Ramondetta, switch Smith. Photo: Broach

March: The Big Apple gets bit by Jon Dickson. Switch flip, dog. Photo: Burnett

April: The gnarliest dude meets the burliest park. SOTY 2011, Grant Taylor, torques a channel wall mega-stale at Pizzey on Australia's Gold Coast. "She don't even smoke." Photo: Burnett

May: Outlaw Corey Duffel crushes major crooks, one step ahead of the man. FTW. Photo: Zaslavsky

June: Pink Floyd had three consecutive records go platinum, and Danny Way accomplishes the same feat with this Mega-Eurogap backside flip in Paradise. See you on the dark side of the moon. Photo: Blabac

July: It’s been almost 23 years since a nosepick graced the cover. Danny Sargent first, Jim Greco now, and any way you look at it, street tuff. Photo: Broach

August: The golden child, Trevor Colden, switch tré through the vortex. Photo: Burnett

September: Dane Burman is a bad-ass. The only Aussie who doesn't drink gets damn reckless with a back 50-50 to different kind of pole jam. Photo: Burnett

October: He asked for the gnarliest spot in San Diego and he got it. Colombia's David Gonzalez grinds through the kink, off the drop, and into skate history. Photo: Burnett

November: Freestyle meets tranny as Marc Johnson gets all Rodney. What’s next? Kickflip darkslides on vert? It’s coming. Photo: Colen

December: Bake and Destroy is here! Figgy's three-kink crooks must have felt mighty good. Photo: Burnett
