For 17 years, TRANSWORLD SNOWBOARDING
has polled the professional snowboarding community to find their picks for the
best riders of the year. Each season, these awards are decided by the opinions
of over 100 pros. While TRANSWORLD
SNOWBOARDING hosts the awards, the winners are truly a reflection
of peer acknowledgement—the highest honor any rider can receive.
This year veterans like Arthur Longo, Chris Grenier, Eero Niemela, Scott Blum, Kimmy Fasani, and Pat Moore all voted alongside up-and-comers including Jake Kuzyk, Blake Paul, and Ozzy Henning to determine which of their fellow riders would receive the most prestigious awards in snowboarding.
