Also nominated for Best Rookie, and also privy to a light-speed rise from East Coast (New Jersey) skate rat to the pro ranks (for Real last December), Ishod Wair’s breakout slow mo–laced Since Day One part was listed by many as one of the standouts of the entire video. In addition, he won Maloof DC am contest and took the overall gold (and 100,000-dollar check) at Maloof South Africa.
