It seems as if pretty much every skateboarder on the face of the earth saw this one coming from a mile away...Yes, it's just been officially announced that Silas Baxter Neal is Thrasher Magazine's 2008 Skater Of The Year. There's no doubt that this dude has had an impressive year. He threw down a ton of mag interviews, handled a boatload of coverage, put out a sick part in the Habitat video, Inhabitants, and picked up some bangin' sponsors like Elwood and Adidas along the way. Silas skates everything and anything with extra speed and style. There's no doubt that this one is well deserved. To put an extra touch of authenticity to this news, Thrasher put this little video together of Jake Phelps' dropping of the monumental news.
