Time to throw in your votes for YOUR skateboarder of the year. Last year Guy Mariano easily took the award plus a few other trophies. This year will definitely go to someone else; who it will be is still a mystery.
Could it be Heath Kirchart with his ever amazing ending part in Alien Workshops Mind Field video? Or possibly Greg Lutzka who threw down a 3 peat at Tampa Pro. Lizard King got tons of coverage this year and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get a reader’s choice. Chaz Ortiz pulled off one of the biggest sponsorship deals in the history of skateboarding by acquiring Gatorade to his list of backers. That and he managed to win a contest against the usual Dew Tour suspects. Could it even go to an unsung hero?
The out come is in your hands. Actually, why not just pick someone random who hasn’t gotten much coverage and give him some glory. That would be awesome. Ronnie Creager wasn’t really too much in the limelight this past year but I guarantee his new Blind video part will be a reminder to all that he’s a technical wizard. That and I feel like already giving him an award just for being himself. I don’t even need to see his video part yet to know it’s going to be good.
Man its going to be a tough reader’s choice selection this year.
