This year’s Skater of the Year prize from Thrasher Magazine was definitely a toss up between several varying skaters- Not one like another… Would it be Daewon Song with his awesome tech-wizardry? Or perhaps the well respected skills of newcomer Brent Atchley? Perhaps the powerhouse moves of Chris Cole had the masses in awe..?
Well, it was Chris and the reasons were simple: 360 flip Wallenburg, racking up more points single handedly that an entire previous team during the King of the Road competion, winning $32,000 in a day and putting out amazing footage throughout the year!
Perhaps Chris can take this moment of glory to thank his sponsors and not his stylist! Read the Crossfire interview with Chris Cole this year here.
