It's creative because legitimately none of the other skaters you mentioned would even think of trying to skate the spots Tom skates, maybe Mason would, but he wouldn't be doing 5 trick lines.

Jesus guys he's nothing to write home about.

Can we just think about previous SOTYs? Reynolds, cardiel, way, ishod.

Knox? Nope.

Are you ok?

You got your Tom's wrong. Tom Karangelon just put a part out with way better trick/spot selection. both are dope. Both are not SOTY material.

 it was pretty obvious the dude was confined to the UK because of the lockdown, plus the shit tom knox is doing in the crust of london is way more appreciated than the perfect spots the other tom k is skating in perfect southern california
Now just wait a god damn minute big boy Benz. SoCal is not perfect when visiting I’ve had to drive or skate as many as 8 blocks to find a respectable vegan restaurant but when skating there I usually only have to push twice to make a city block

My favourite is when this descends into people just sounding off their favourite skater.

SOTY has been about quantity of output thinly veiled with “quality” there have been some atrocious decisions in the past based on this format.

Mason is deserving as is Tom.

If Tom Knox won it would really mark a change in Thrashers some what, historically, blinkered view of skating (granted it will always be skewed due to its physical location) it would also establish that British/European skateboarding is on the level of past winners.

It would ultimately make clear that achievement in skateboarding isn’t based on purely shock value and instead merit that can be measured by actually quality.

It would finally put credence to the over used statement “skateboarding is an artform” as we would be measuring on technically ability, intent, consideration and composition. Not just stair counting or click bait stunts.

I feel like that's how it was until the last 10 years or so. Growing up, I don't remember it being a big deal, or any sort of campaign or push, it was kind of like, "oh, that's well deserved" when the issue came out.

SOTY is unlikely but he does seem obsessively productive. A misserable when not skating and-even misserable when skating kind of type. Might be due to the edit though.
SHIT!

Jeez you guys get such a hard on for Tom Knox, he’s a decent pro, as Windsor Knot said earlier he’s nothing to write home about.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It’s the courage to continue that counts.

It's long overdue. His Speed Freaks part is legendary.
44 years young. Skatin' since '80. Take yours slams, get up smiling, say #thankyouskateboarding, and get back up and do it again. Because FUN.

Yeah, how often do you see guys going to the UK and leaving their trip with hammers, most of it is just Southbank stuff. That shit is rough as hell to skate. Especially the cobblestone and brink stuff Tom has a ton of footage at it.

You should quit skating and find a hobby that would suit your aversion to creativity more.
Also while I get the Suciu comparison I find Tom's skating more entertaining, think it comes down to spot collection and just style overall.
