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.
