After spending months pouring through the annals of snowboard gossip, history and media, Yobeat has prepared the only 2012 award list that should matter to anyone. It was tough, it took one whole iChat conversation to complete. Tons of people were left out. Actual data was almost completely dismissed as dumb or not very cool. But, after so much effort, so many bad jokes and a few actual moments of awkward silence following terrible jokes at the expense of nice people, we’ve done it; we’ve created the list of lists. So fuck you other magazines, blogs and commentors with shitty opinions. This is the 2012 Yobeat Rider Awards.
The last two years really paid off, watch DWD for proof.
Your votes count around here people.

If you don’t count that fetus we found at SIA.

Just try to dispute this award. Alex will stab you and hide you in his van.
