Following ridiculous amounts of Internet speculation (including our own here at SLAMXHYPE), THRASHER has just announced its “Skater of the Year.” It’s Ishod Wair. Beating out the likes of Brandon Westgate and Nyjah Huston, Ishod came out on top, and if you’ve seen his part in Nike’s SB Chronicles Vol.2, you’ll probably agree with this decision. It’s another step in a still young career for the 22-year old New Jersey pro, who is signed to Nike SB, Real Skateboards and Fourstar, and we can except to see a highlight reel from his 2013 in the near future.
