2016 might have been a crappy year in general, but there was one area where people did seem to excel: skateboarding.

Below you can catch an extended highlights video for all the contenders for the best skateboarding trick of the year. Clocking in at 15 minutes, it’s a beefy watch but absolutely worth sitting down and checking out as there are some completely unbelievable tricks in there with contributions from Shane O’Neill, Daewon Songs and Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki.
Watch out in particular for the manual combo around six minutes, but there’s a lot of stuff to love in this edit:
Wow. Skateboarding and skateboarders just keep getting better and better and pushing the sport to its absolute limit. I swear people like Jaws and Daewon are superhuman robots in their ability to land stuff like that, and more importantly not get battered beyond belief whilst they’re attempting to land some of their tricks.
Nuff respect, can’t wait to see what 2017 brings for the sport. Hopefully a better year for all of us too.
