You’ve seen Tiago Lemos’s nearly impossible Switch Backside Tailside on the huge MACBA ledge in Barcelona. Now find out exactly how the 2017 Trick of the Year went down.

2017 was the toughest year to judge. Anyone in the top 5 could have taken it. But when it came down to the final decision the TOTY judges could not think of anyone else in skateboarding that could SWITCH Backside Tailslide that high of a ledge for that long! Skateboarding isn’t always just about doing the most technically hard trick or hucking down the biggest set. There’s something to be said about making a flatground, many or ledge trick look beautiful while still blowing people’s minds. That’s something special that only a few people can do. From being reposted by heavy skate media outlets to all the Pros & Legends that backed it, Tiago’s Switch Backside Tailslide took skateboarding to another level and will still be respected 10 years from now.

Congrats Tiago on taking the 2017 Trick of the Year and the $10,000!
