TJ has been officially crowned SOTY 2018. Do you feel this was deserved?

  Hell yeah! I was just thinking the other day how the east coast is blowing up in skating right now, and here we have an NYC Mr. Skateboarder 2018.

lots of things I think people are thinking rn:
1. Itís crazy to think this is only SOTY number 2 thatís actually on adidas at the time of the nom other then Silas.
2. Dylan was the greatest skater of this decade bar none. Thrasher snubbed him for years even though whether u like it or not he basically defined what skating is now more then any other pro. He was every skaters favorite skater. Tyshawn winning feels like the perfect nod to not only TJ but what he represents with that crew, which is something special and I think everyone knows it.
3. The east coast has been snubbed for years by thrasher, this feels like a great step in the right direction.
4. Thrasher is going to make motherfucking bank off this shit with supreme collabs and what not and bringing supreme ďto the cityĒ.
5. This ends the reign of Soty rail chompers of Kyle walker and Jamie foy, refreshing.

Honestly had given up hope and thought Evan had this. Surprised thrasher made the right choice. You already know his footage will be timeless

I haven't cared for the SOTY gimmick for quite a while but that aside I'm really happy that Tyshawn is getting recognized like this.

Feels so right, very satisfied to see this!

That reveal video Thrasher put up was pretty weak though, and if Evan really turned it down first thatís some trippy shit.

It was either him or Evan, all signs were pointed to Evan but I ain't mad at the decision. Stoked for him specially because hes only 19 and is not stopping anytime soon. Video was a little awkward but I mean its Phelps trying to vibe with a 19 year old east coast skater, it probably couldn't have gone any better than that. Also I do like that we've been hearing for years that you just cant get footage in NYC yet TJ gets all his footage from there exclusively. This helps prove that you cant blame the east coast for your lack of motivation.

It's actually impossible to get footage in NYC the ground is made of loose rubble and it's negative a bunch of degrees year round

wonder why the other thread got locked??  ???

i was torn between him or evan, good choice though. evan will probably put out another 3 video parts next year and get robbed again but that's okay at this point. like someone else said, i'm glad it's not another handrail chomper finally (zion)

He always has a smile on his face so he's gotta be making 6 figures

No yeah I think that's sick, I feel like TJ can probably get footage anywhere he is taken.

I donít think he got robbed, I think he has to be the dude who supposedly turned it down. I hope itís not true that someone else was the first choice, solely because that kind of dulls the moment for Tyshawn which honestly kind of sucks for him. But I donít know why Reynolds would lie about something like that either, or say something like that unless he knew it to be true.

if anything someone turned down the nomination. I don't think any of evan's sponsors would let him turn down soty.
