YBAm 2013: Riley Hawk

The Skateboard Mag has been recapping their Years Best Am series per year before announcing 2014’s YBAm. Here’s Active Pro, Riley Hawk‘s section from 2013.

“On the heels of Riley Hawk’s insane year as an amateur in 2013, he rightfully turned pro the day of receiving The Skateboard Mag’s Year’s Best Am award. This rookie pro put in 365 days of work in 2013 and showed us all that he isn’t just Tony Hawk’s son, he’s a straight-up skateboarding machine. One who shows no sign of slowing down whatsoever. Monday, February 2nd, we’ll be announcing our 2014 YBAm! It was a hell of a year and there are a handful of candidates who deserve the award, but there will only be one Year’s Best Am… Check back Monday to see who it is!
