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

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
