David Gonzalez hasn’t slowed down since becoming Skater of the Year

David Gonzalez's talents are undeniable. While he may not be everyone's cup of tea and there were lots of mixed feelings about him grabbing the 2012 Skater of the Year (SOTY) award from Thrasher, you will be hard pressed to find anyone that can argue with how gnarly he is. His Thrasher part that went up a few months ago proved that. While most SOTYs tend to mellow out the year following their award, Gonzalez seems to be going after back-to-back titles. In this clip to introduce his new Globe shoe, The Sabbath, he bombs hills and puts down some hammers in ditches, pools, and a hefty rail over a gap. Well played, sir.
