    Default UK SOTY nominations thread

    That time of year again, the highly-coveted, very prestigious N26 UK SOTY showdown.

    Everyone each nominate three UK skaters they think deserve the prize and I'll set up a poll with the top 10 sometime next week.

    My three:
    -Alex Hallford - loop de loop
    -Harry Lintell - that Real part
    -Kyron Davis - Numbers part, other things

    Big shoe sponsors, please send bribes my way...

    Mike Arnold won it last year for jumping into the Bristol Channel.

    I agree there’s not a host of obvious candidates this year (although Barney Page for his etnies video exploits is a great shout), but that makes it more interesting.

    oh yeah Mike did power it.

    does Barney page count? isn't he Brian Sumner British at the moment? ( happy to be called out. thought he was a definite ex pat at this point tho)

    Barney or Sam Beckett.

    Edit: yeah Lintell of course for managing to hang with the heaviest crew in skateboarding and more than hold his own.

    He’s only in Europe! I mean, does Penny still count? We haven’t left yet!

    Also, the reverse of that is interesting. Does a Euro living in the UK qualify? Does Manny Lopez count?

    Even if Barney is an ex pat he still was better than everyone else in my book.

    To have one of the best parts in that etnies video amongst that line up is no small task.

    No one’s nominated him yet so we’ll cross that trans-Atlantic bridge if we come to it.

    Yeah I wouldn't say Tom Penny counts at this point but maybe that's different because he's so far into legend status he has transcended islands.
    Not having a go at barney I just don't associate him with British skating at all. Maybe I would have a different opinion if I lived in a different part of the UK and saw him more often or tracked his video/career more closely but I just see him as Barcelona based professional skateboarder who trips to the states and around Spain.

    Now I think about it I associate all of the sour crew exclusively as Barcelona skaters that go on trips and not with their respective, mainly Scandi roots.
    I'd be inclined to Manny counts More than Barney. Yes, I am aware that sounds strange and don't really understand it myself.

    Jordan Sharkey

    Harry Lintell
    Jordan Thackeray

    In no particular order and I feel no need to justify any of them!
