UPDATE: Tyshawn Jones Wins 2018 Skater of the Year

Supreme’s “BLESSED” dropped on iTunes this morning. The follow-up to 2014’s “cherry” does not disappoint, and should be watched in its entirety by anyone who follows skate culture. Our only question after viewing it is will Tyshawn Jones’s effort secure his spot as this year’s SOTY? 2018 was a great year for videos, and there were many standout parts. But after watching what Tyshawn put together, and considering that in the context of the battles with security guards, spots, etc that he had to go through to do so; we think that he’s more than deserving of this year’s trophy. Watch the video for yourself. Then, head over to Thrasher to cast your vote.

UPDATE 12.15.18: Bill Strobeck posted a video that shows a bit of Tyshawn’s speech. Swipe right below to check it out. It’s definitely a moment that skateboarding will never forget.

 

UPDATE 12.15.18: Photos have been circulating on Instagram of Tyshawn’s acceptance of the 2018 SOTY trophy at Thrasher’s annual celebration. Judging from the images, it looks like the speech was an emotional one. We’ll update when the video surfaces.
