Burnquist Wins TW's Best Vert Skater


Bob Burnquist was crowned the Best Vert Skater in Transworld Skateboarding’s 9th Annual Skateboarding Awards. Fresh off back to back trips to Brazil and the Cayman Islands, Bob arrived just in time to accept one of skateboarding’s highest honors.  The X Games Gold Medalist is one of skateboarding’s most decorated athletes, having won numerous contests and awards over his illustrious career. Tonight’s medal was just another feather in the cap for the distinguished vert skater.

“I’m so honored and humbled to win this award especially in this day and age of skateboarding. There is so much amazing talent out there pushing the sport to new heights that I feel very privileged to be recognized for my efforts. I look forward to continuing to push the envelope!” said an elated Burnquist afterwards. Look for Bob to kick off the 2007 Dew Action Sports Tour with a win in two weeks when the Tour gets underway in Baltimore.
