Here's one of the heaviest vert sessions to take place in recent memory, including rippers from three generations: Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, Rune Glifberg, Lincoln Ueda, Mike Frazier, Chris Russell, and many others.
Let the debate begin! Here are this year's 12 SOTY semi-finalists. Brush up on their resumes and CAST YOUR VOTE NOW to determine the Top 5.
Steve Alba, Rune Glifberg, Al Partanen, Arto Saari, Rick McCrank, Bob Burnquist, Omar Hassan, and even Ronnie Creager ripping some backyard pits.
Listen to us carefully: you REALLY gotta watch this one. "Where is Bob Burnquist going? Who knows? But add a helicopter, moveable contraptions, and a bunch of Brazillian gusto and Presto! Live the video game." –Jake Phelps
