Late last month Thrasher Magazine revealed a long list of nominees for their annual 'Skater Of The Year' Award. After some online voting, and more importantly behind the scenes picking from Editor-in-Chief Jake Phelps, Thrasher announced on Instagram just minutes ago that Kyle Walker has been named the 2016 'Skater Of The Year.'
CONGRATS KYLE WALKER @THRASHERMAG SOTY 2016! @KWALKS WELL DESERVED!

We were obviously rooting for the home team at DC Shoes and Evan Smith to take home the award, but Vans and Real Skateboard pro Kyle Walker definitely deserved it just as much.
