SOTY Party 2019 Photos
Unless you’ve been living underneath a rotting mini ramp in the woods, you undoubtedly already know that Milton Martinez is our 2019 Skater of the Year. We celebrated his win this past Friday with a bangin'-ass party in The City by the Bay. Didn’t make it? There’s always 2020, homies! Live vicariously ’til then…
Nothing unusual about a cold, wet Dec evening in SF
Good thing the party was heating up inside! Damn right he’s still watchin’

Not just dudes in the house
Real question from earlier in the night: “Is that Tom Grom?”
Duffy, Wez and Wes—Tres leyendas
Somewhat patiently awaiting…
Mark Gonzales brought the SOTY trophy (and some bunny ears) onstage for Burnett
There it is
Rapid dance moves. We should all be so lucky
Our reluctant hero appears
Hey, you need this, Milton
I just wanna say…
It’s a family affair
A man of few words, our ’19 SOTY lets his skating do the talking
Then Tommy Wright III took the stage
And closed the party the F down!
Congrats, Milton, on your 2019 SOTY win—the streets never knew what hit ‘em! Excited to see your upcoming SOTY trip victory lap—the stoke never sleeps! Who’s your bet for 2020?!
1/20/2021Gerwer and Schmitty get Carroll to set the record straight on Kelch kicking T-Dogs out of EMB, spider bites on the road, club tracks and Phelper stories. Nerd out with one of the greats.
1/19/2021It wasn’t just the stock dudes that put out an unprecedented amount of raw ripping last year. Here are the non-traditional skaters that got the highest marks in 2020.
1/19/2021Clay Kreiner’s Delusional part, the Bleach video, Pedro Barros’ Free Dream part, Marc Johnson and more in today’s episode of Skateline.
1/12/2021Ryan Townley’s Layers part, Ace Pelka’s Creative Control, Junior, Enzo, Hosea and more in today's episode of Skateline.
1/05/2021Last year was the worst, which means we’ve got an extra-stacked pack of T-Eddys for the skate world’s gaffes and god-awful moments. Plenty of praise in there, too! Don’t get pissed if you made the list.
