It’s thanks in part to Vans Signature Pro Tony Trujillo that most modern skaters are as versatile in the streets as on tranny. TNT is the archetype all-terrain skater that inspired generations to skate anything put in their path. His no holds barred attack of all topography earned him Thrasher’s coveted lucky 13th Skater of the Year award in 2002. Trujillo’s numerous video parts over the years, coupled with his punk rock, no B.S. attitude will forever remain the blueprint of what makes skateboarders such a different breed.
