Year-end compilation lists may be arbitrary and overdone, but when they focus on making fun of people, they’re at least more entertaining than whatever “family outing” you’re being roped into for the holidays.

Also, 2018 was a banner year for skateboarding and like we did last year, we want to rehash all the dumb memories before we’re forced to forget them and move into the dystopian future.

In 2018 we saw:
ugly skate shoes become mainstream “rave” boots and boots become skate shoes
– blunts taken to new lengths and highs
El Toro get way more action than most millennials
– Tyshawn become the indisputable trash king
scooters clap back and booty cheeks get tapped

So to celebrate all this nonsense and more, we present Jenkem’s second annual list of skateboarding superlatives. Scroll on to enjoy or go straight to condemning us in the comments.

    Damn, Andy Roy got himself some chiclets for teeth. How about trying a natural colour instead of nuclear white.

    Puleo is completely right.. it’s nice to hear a voice of reason for once in this matter.
    and it is not ok what the slap-Social Justice keyboard warriors did to Jason Jessee. Ruining another persons life by taking away their source of income is even more despicable than doodeling swastikas on motorcycle helmets for a shock value. Jessee was skating, producing content and contributed more to the company’s he was sponsored by than any other „legend“ who is still fully sponsored.

      The only person who contributed less to skateboarding (as well within Santa Cruz which seems to make a habit of sponsoring B-league has-beens) while milking it like a farmer on cocaine, is Dressen. And no, you deserve social shunning if you are a neonazi, not admiration.
