2020 was unlike any other year in recent times, as many of us have faced unprecedented levels of misfortune and grief and despite all of the chaos, we have made it through to a new year. And with the new year, comes new challenges and also a greater appreciation for the things we may have once taken for granted. But on the bright side of things, blading has seen a massive resurgence within the mainstream, with new heads popping up and old bladers dusting off their skates and coming to the realization that should have never left in the first place. 2021 is looking to be one of the biggest years in blading’s history, but we can’t forget all of the incredible skaters, companies and organizers that persevered through the adversity and made 2020 so memorable.
And although foreign operatives were mysteriously trying to alter our results in favor of Michael Briggs winning all of the categories, we are FINALLY able to proudly announce our finalists for Be-Mag’s Best of 2020 awards! Congratulations and thank you to all of our incredible nominees that created the amazing blading content that has kept us all sane the last twelve months. So cast your vote below for who you think was the best and the brightest of 2020!
