Here’s the video that played at this year’s TWS Awards just before Ed came onstage to accept the Legend Award. Ed knew nothing of this video, admitted it got him a little choked up, then delivered the best Legend acceptance speech ever.
Brian Schaefer and Lee Dupont keep the ship on course in part two of the TWS Awards: Ray Barbee and Evan Smith present Best Team, Theotis Beasley and Jason Hernandez present Best Video, Marc Johnson and Chris Roberts present Best Video Part and Christian Hosoi introduced the TWS Legend Award.
Stay tuned to the TWS site as they’ll be dropping the Skateistan and Jay Adams Legend videos next month when their Awards issue hits newsstands!
New for this year’s show, TWS incorporated several additional TransWorld SKATEboarding content based Readers’ Choice awards in an effort to open up more category voting to the fans. From the best TWSKATE photos of the year, to the covers, to the Video Check Outs, and everything in between, the voices of fans were heard.
Transworld has posted Part 2 of their TWS Awards Red Carpet interviews. Hosts Lee Dupont and Brian Schaefer stopped by as well as the Illegal Civ crew and enjoi’s Zack Wallin and Louie Barletta give their picks.
