Vote Jamie Foy SOTY 2016
Thrasher put it well. “Skateboarding just gets bigger and better every year.” There are some heavy hitter on 2016 SOTY Contenders list, but here is why local Jamie Foy should get your vote.
Jamie has been hustling in the skate world since he was just a grom and always going big. He was a daily presence at our local park, Ramp 48. He has gone from our local “Foy Boy” to one of the hottest am’s in the industry.
Now a sponsored am for Deathwish Skateboards and Diamond Footwear, Jamie relocated to Long Beach. Since the move, Jamie has put out more parts than some skaters do their entire career with edits from The Berrics, Thrasher, and the Skateboard Mag….to name a few. His big ticks even had skaters like Torey Pudwill has calling Jamie “his favorite skater of all time.” He wrapped up his year by filming for King of the Road with his Deathwish team that is due to come out soon.
In a recent interview from Red Bull, Jamie said:
“Every day I’m thinking of something new to try or something that hasn’t been done before,” Jamie says. “That’s what gets me excited to go skate. There are no rules. It’s just me and my board, having fun.”
Last month, Lee Dupont interviewed Jamie and another Florida local, Zion Wright, on Weekend Buzz episode. He said:
“Jamie is one of the hottest dudes coming out right now. Between the both of them, there’s been nothing but top threes and wins, and everybody wants to film with them.”
So, who will succeed Anthony Van Engelen, 2015 SOTY? Our vote goes to IWS team rider, Jamie Foy.
You can have your say NOW at Thrasher.
