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…
