Congratulations to Chris Cole, who has been named Thrasher's 2009 Skater of the Year. Only the second person to ever win it twice, Cole also won in 2005, and has been on an all-terrain reign of shredding ever since. Contests, magazines, demos, and most important, video parts -- Cole's done it all. Hell, he's mastered it all over the last five years. He's even opened a shop in his hometown to support the scene... And a great guy to boot. The stuff legends are made of, we're seeing one of the best ever, right now.
Here's Jake Phelps with the congratulatory phone call:
