The world may have exploded twice over in last year but we weren’t really paying attention because 2021 was a historic year for skateboarding. Not only was it the first time that our hobby/sport/whatever was showcased on a worldwide scale, but it was also the year Tony Hawk sold his blood and his tricks. We saw Supreme expand their empire to Italy and Germany, while brands like StockX entered the skateboarding zeitgeist.To properly highlight the good, the bad, and the even worse of 2021 we sat and thought about it for like 45 minutes and decided to come up with this list.
There might be some awards on here that you don’t understand, but as long as you get a laugh and prepare for another year full of unfathomable trends, hard slams, and then we’ve done our job!
