We'll be announcing the 2014 Skater of the Year this Saturday night, but until then check our top 8 finalists and let us know who YOU think should take the only title that matters. Congratulations to all our contenders. What an amazing year!
The 2014 SOTY season is so heavy! We have eight semi-finalists and will be launching profile videos of each over the next four days, in no particular order. Let's kick it off with the Prince of Pulaski, Bobby Worrest!
We cast a wide net to start the 2014 SOTY debate. Check the stats and help us whittle it down. Who do YOU think should win the only award that matters?
Dew Tour took over Franklin Street in front of the House of Vans for their New York Streetstyle event and it got really Colden there.
Beagle films a canine part, Barker Barrett has finesse with his skating, Gary reacts to P-Rod's new shoe, and here's an analysis of dolphin flip.
Wow, he's always been good but something really set a fire under Bobby lately and he's been a true skate demon. Here's more of that smooth tech he's known for plus some straight-up hammers.
A smooth tune goes with the effortless skating of these two talented rippers, including a great ending line by Auby.
His Pulaski part is a fan-favorite and Bobby is still killing it with this edit of West Coast spots. It's going to just be a 30-second web-edit, right? No way. Full part premieres here Friday.
Here's some vintage 90's East Coast skating including the legendary Pepe (RIP) skating in Timberlands. Bobby Worrest introduces a classic part from the 1997 True Mathematics video.
This past year Bobby has really added to his legacy of sick lines with trick choices that go well together.
You can tell that Bobby took pride in this all-Pulaski part and worked hard. But it must have been fun stacking together those lines, too. Amazing stuff, Bobby.
There's perfect plazas sprouting up all over the world, but DC's Pulaski Park is an All-American skate landmark. Bobby filmed a part at this legendary spot. Coming this Friday.
Hell yeah, here's a good reminder that skating is still fun. The infamous clothing company is back and wait until you see how diverse and random their team is.
His snap abilities are incredible but Brad keeps his skating calm and smooth. That opening kickflip, hot damn! Here's a part from Brad (also featuring the Krooked team) as he joins the pro ranks.
Here's some rad makes, sketchy slams, and an all-around fun as hell day with Mark Gonzales and the Krooked team. Brad Cromer is in for a surprise, too.
