Instead of the usual five, we animated the 10 sequences that graced our Contents pages in 2011.
Marquis Henry, switch back tail biggie? No wonder we’re still in print. Sequence: Blabac
Flat bar 50-50 kickflip drop? Gotta be The Sheckler. Sequence: McGuire
At the end of Skate Rock, I seen Justin take on five dudes in a bar—so you know he don’t fuck around. Three-flip three-set. Figgy forever. Sequence: Burnett
Lowell, Mass is a long way from SF’s Clipper, allowing Manny Santiago to man-up this nollie heel 50-50 on a sunny winter afternoon. Sequence: Zaslavsky
Poker-face Nick Merlino got $500 bucks for his switch heel down Wallenberg. This switch back three is worth at least $350. Sequence: Burnett
Weird shit? This gap to wallride is all Fritz Mead needs to get off. Sequence: Xeno
Following the trippy-hubba-trick trend started recently by James Hardy, Taylor Bingaman swings a frontside 180 to fakie 5-0 at Rincon Sequence: Rhino
Photos of Dennis Busenitz are like photos of Sasquatch. Even when you see one, you can barely believe your eyes. Step-up kickflip tailslide revert in Copenhagen. Sequence: Burnett
Heath Kirchart changed skating forever. No hands backside 360 in Nowhere, Colorado. Sequence: Hammeke
Grant Taylor knows there’s no such thing as too much grind. Backside 50-50, rail to curb. Sequence: Burnett
