1) The second half of the inspirational, and most “why the hell are you 25 and complaining about being sore” video part in recent history got disqualified because that footage was previously released. Still an incredible part. 2) Even though looking like you were vomitted on by a Zumiez location — as the Twitters eloquently put it — is grounds for dismisal from Top 10 selection, the said trick, and tons of other hot moves in that Jordan Maxham part are undeniably insane. 3)Fakie varialll flipsss ;)
It’s Friday the 13th, be safe out there ♥

First one of the year. Between Tom Knox looking like he did back when he dropped the best video part of 2015 and Lucas’ return to health, we’re just a good Future mixtape away from 2017 having a full leg up on the wretched year that just ended :) Jacob Harris’ “Atlantic Drift” video with all the Isle boys is the best web montage since “Faces” so you should probably watch that a few more times btw def.
Stay warm out there ♥ xoxo

Last one of the year boys ;) Had a good time putting these together for the past six months and thanks to everyone for all of the feedback. The past week has been pretty slow on traditional media outlets, so this edition is rather Instagram heavy. Also no idea why the Studio Skateboards video was only ripping without audio, but oh well.
Most important news of the past week is that the god Lucas is back on the board — unless of course someone comes through right now with a “that footage is old” quip, which is 50% likely. Have a good one ♥

Second to last one of the year. A few anonymous inquiries have been made as to whether or not there would be a top 10 of the year, and unfortunately, with the series only beginning back in July, that would take too much back research into the first six months of the year :( Obvs going to have one for 2017 duh.
Also, pretty monumental that we have made it half a year though, and this is the first time we fully haven’t been able to identify a skater by name (it’s #5.) Anyone?
Edit 1: #5 is Erik J. Petersen, which I honestly kind of suspected, but was unsure because he was dressed a bit more g’d out than usual. Edit 2: #9 is actually Eli Reed, not Ron Deily. Sorry boys.
Merry Christmas everyone. Have a good one ♥
