David Gonzalez has taken the title for this years Thrasher Skater of the Year 2012, which was close due to the amazing video parts from the best in the industry. The 22-year-old Colombian native and member of Flip Skateboards is the 22nd professional skateboarder to have claimed the throne. Gonzalez nailed it down this year, having a barrage of gnarly video parts, such as Possessed to Skate, along with a truckload of awesome photos. With such skaters in the run like Nyjah Huston, Mark Johnson, Austyn Gillette, Justin Figueroa, Guy Mariano or Cory Kennedy; Gonzalez definitely put it down. A big congratulations to David Gonzalez!
