Skate of the Year - Leo Romero. Year after year Thrasher puts together a great party and this night was no exception. The only downer was the lack of the traditional open bar, or if you aren't a fan of drunken antics, it was a good thing.
Waiting for the doors to open, Terry looks over an issue of COLOR.

We've been getting our fair share of wet and inclement weather here, although not nearly as bad as Vancouver and the rest of the continent. So with extra time on my hands I cleaned my bearings and gave the board a new paint job. Lakai sent the next shoes to be tested, the re-release of the Manchester cupsole with a Vincent Alverez twist.
