Big happenings at the Transworld Awards last night. The New Era Readers’ Choice Award went to none other than the people’s champ, Guy Mariano, who came out swinging with a mind-blowing part in Pretty Sweet.
After putting out an insane barrage of coverage this past year, including an interview in TransWorld SKATEboarding‘s May 2012 issue and a grip of footage in The Cinematographer Project, Alien Workshop’s Gilbert Crockett took the stage to accept Best Rookie.
Girl and Chocolate’s Pretty Sweet took home Best Video. Produced by the legendary team of Spike Jonze, Ty Evans, Aaron Meza, and Federico Vitetta, Pretty Sweet showcased some of the world’s greatest skateboarding and did it with style.
Taking the stage once again, Guy Mariano accepted the Best Video Part award for his curtains part in Pretty Sweet. Not many skaters actively progress well into their 30s, but like fine wine, Mariano somehow gets better with age. Countless NBDs and an ender of all enders, Guy managed to put out what few will ever come close to doing. Combine his skills on the board with Crailtap’s legendary video editing, and you’ve got an epic part that won’t be topped for years.
Wrapping up the Awards show, Tommy Guerrero accepted the Legend Award. Not many people can say they revolutionized the world of skateboarding, but this San Francisco icon, top shelf Bones Brigader, co-founder of Real Skateboards, and first ever “street” pro, has left an incredible mark on the world of skateboarding. Roll Forever.
