TransWorld SKATEboarding, the world’s number one skateboard magazine, announced the nominees for the 11th Annual TransWorld SKATEboarding Awards today. The winners will be named during a live event on June 12, 2009 at Avalon Hollywood.
The TransWorld SKATEboarding Awards honor skateboarding’s top riders, presenting eight awards to professional skateboarders in the categories of Best Rookie, Best Street Skater, Best Transition Skater, Best Team, Best Video, Best Video Part, TWS Readers’ Choice, and the TWS Legend Award. The award winners are determined by polling more than 150 professional skateboarders worldwide with thousands of TransWorld SKATEboarding’s readers voting for the winner of the TWS Readers’ Choice Award. This year’s TWS Legend Award will be presented to one of skateboarding’s finest vert skaters, Christian Hosoi. Previous winners of this prestigious award have included Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, and Mark Gonzales.
In addition to the awards, TransWorld SKATEboarding is pleased to host the world premiere of its 21st video, Right Foot Forward, the newest film by Jon Holland and Chris Ray, featuring Corey Duffel, Joey Brezinski, Kellen James, Matt Beach, and Bobby Worrest.
Eric Stricker, Editor of TransWorld SKATEboarding says, “The TransWorld SKATEboarding Awards are not only the biggest and best awards show in skateboarding—where the pros are the ones deciding who was best for the year—but it’s the official kickoff to the summer.

A few weeks ago the Globe crew took a fun little field trip to the brand new Epic skatepark in Rocklin, California (Sacramento area) to put the finishing touches on a team section for United By Fate episode 5. The trip was stacked with a heavy crew: Chris Haslam, Mark Appleyard, Ryan Decenzo, Jake Duncombe, Matt Mumford, Luan Oliveira, Louie Lopez, Greg Lutzka, David Gonzalez and multiple filmers and photographers.
This park is sick and has a bit of everything to shred for everyone. Time flies when you’re setting up shoots, filming, gassing up genniess, and making beer runs.—Chet Thomas
