Titans of skate industry descended upon the city of San Francisco this past weekend for Thrasher Magazine's annual Skater of the Year party. This year was especially lit because they also announced the winners for King of the Road. Getting into SOTY wasn't nearly the struggle it was last year and most of our photos are actually in focus this time... Maybe we're finally starting to get our shit together after all. Thanks again Sally Vitello!
