Street League Skateboarding

2017 Trick Of The Year was by far the toughest year to judge. Anyone in the top 5 could have taken it. In the end, it was Tiago Lemos’ incredible Switch Back Tail on the huge MACBA ledge in Barcelona that came out on top. Its hard to think of other skaters that could Switch Backside Tailslide this high of a ledge for that long. Even Tiago didn’t think it was possible until that session at MACBA, when he turned a joke amongst friends into reality. Skateboarding isn’t always just about doing the most technically hard trick or hucking down the biggest set. There’s something to be said about making a flatground, manny or ledge trick look beautiful while still blowing people’s minds. That’s something special that only a few people can do. From being reposted by heavy skate media outlets to all the Pros & Legends that backed it, Tiago’s Switch Back Tail took it to another level and will still be respected 10 years from now. Congrats Tiago Lemos on taking the 2017 Trick of the Year and the $10,000!!!! Watch the video below to find out exactly how the 2017 Trick of the Year went down
