Okay, so the 12TH Annual Tansworld Skateboarding Awards are this Tuesday at the Avolon in Hollywood ,CA. The nominees have been announced, and the stage has been set, and what do we at The Grind TV SKATE department have to say. BUSENITZ for Best Street! It’s about time. I’m surprised Phelps over at Thrasher hasn’t already given him a S.O.T.Y.
Anyway, I know Cole kills it and everything, I just watched him collect his second $100,000 courtesy of the Maloof Cup. And I know he also kills it in the real streets, he pretty much retired Wallenburg last year. I’m just saying when it comes to flat out raw city street skating Busenitz may just have the one who goes by Cole. Have you ever watched him skate the streets of San Francisco? First of all, he is the fastest street skateboarder in world, and what I mean by that is he can do tricks on flatground, ledges, stairs, etc. going faster than anyone. Period.
That said, back to the fact that he lives in San Francisco, and skates those mean Rice-a-Roni hills everyday he’s home. Combine those hills, with the blurr that is Busentiz, and all the creative obstacles that The City By The Bay has to offer – in there you will find maybe the best actual street skateboarder.
Plus, he has that whole tech package. If you do remember he and Cole had THE Best Battle At The Berrics. I watched it with my own eyes…it was amazing. Cole eventually won, but they were both on their last letter, and when it was over Cole turned to the camera and said, “That guy is good.”
