Transworld held its 12th Annual SKATEboarding Awards on Tuesday, June 15, 2010. DBOT5 was on hand and ready to mingle among the invite-only skateboarding crowd!
Of course we wanted to be there, since the event was hosted by DBOT5’s athletic supporter and golfer Pat Duffy…which, as expected, made for an entertaining time. Duffy welcomed the few thousand skateboarding guests to the ceremony which was held at Hollywood’s historic Avalon Theater at Hollywood & Vine.
DBOT5’s founder Bryce Hepworth stopped in to the event with hopes to bring on more skateboarders to DBOT5’s current roster of golfing athletic supporters. Hepworth took in the scene while hanging out among the likes of Pat Duffy, Bam Magera and Anthony Manfredi, who was nice enough to hook up DBOT5 at the event. Many thanks Anthony!
The award winners were determined by polling over 150 professional skateboarders worldwide. The night’s awards went to:
BEST ROOKIE Brandon Westgate
BEST VIDEO PART Grant Taylor – “Debacle”
BEST TEAM Flip
BEST STREET Chris Cole
BEST TRANSITION Grant Taylor
BEST VIDEO Extremely Sorry
TWS READERS’ CHOICE Lizard King
Hepworth also spent some time taking part of a stellar photo shoot with JP Walker over in Carlsbad, CA. Pictures from the shoot of JP swinging some swanky DBOT5 clubs will be surfacing soon! So be sure to keep an eye out.
