Welcome and thanks for joining us for the 2002 Am Issue. Over the past three years, TransWorld SKATEboarding has done its best to document the next wave of future professionals. This esteemed group (along with past ones) will also continue to grace the pages of this fine magazine—their faces will become familiar ones to you. They’ve proven that they can get the job done, and are the ones soon worthy to be deemed “professional.”
The next —– pages is just a short glimpse of what’s in store for the sport of skateboarding in the coming months, and by the look of things—the future looks to be a bright place.
