For Forum's pre-press release, minimalist (s)update of what went down, don't bother clicking anything. It goes something like this...
John Jackson - Men's Video Part of the Year
John Jackson - Men's Rider of the Year
Forever - Video of the year
The celebrating continues for freestyle phenom John Jackson who over the weekend at the Transworld Snowboarding Riders' Poll Awards took home top honors, receiving awards for both Rider of the Year
and Video Part of the Year
for his closer in Forum's FOREVER. Also nominated for Rider of the Year and deserving of a shout-out was Forum's Pat Moore who had an equally insane season - yeah, Pat!
With votes coming from the best of the best in snowboarding, John J is definitely feeling the love right now. Plus, you know you've done well when Pam Anderson hands you your award along with a kiss. "This is a major accomplishment for me, it feels insane!" says Jackson. "Thanks to all the voters and to everyone who put their love and support into Forum's FOREVER. The team, the filmers, the photogs and the big dogs behind the desks all worked really hard to make this project what it was, and give us the opportunity to do what we love. I'd like to thank Forum, Special Blend, Von Zipper, LRG, Bryan Knox, Jason Issacs, Nathan Yant, Jeremy Pettit, Kurt Heine, Ian Ruhter, Tim Peare, Kevin Keller, GT, the Hatchet brothers, Bob Marley, all the riders, my family who's always been there for me no matter what, and God for making it all possible. This was a joint effort and I can't express my gratitude enough! Thank you, bless up, and let's get ready for another amazing year! Much luv."
What a night it was for John and the entire Forum crew - congrats, man!
