Yesterday, on Riley Hawk’s 21st birthday, a grip of legends and a pile of pros, bros, and family got together at Riley’s house to surprise him with his first pro board. The Skateboard Mag was honored to join the party where we handed off Riley’s trophy for his 2013 YBAm award. Click through to see Atiba’s snaps of the big celebration.

Surprise! Riley seeing his pro model for the first time.
Everyone was going nuts Terry Kennedy hugs Riley amongst the chaos.
Riley caught in a storm of his pro models.
Only makes sense that Baker’s newest pro was also our Year’s Best Am. Swift hands off the award to Riley.
YBAm, Baker’s newest pro, and a 21st birthday? What a day for this dude.
Rick Howard and Mike Carroll were stoked!
All the big dogs were there. Rick Howard, Erik Ellington, and Mike Carroll in front of the setting sun.

Time to skate. Collin Provost blasts a boneless at the Hawk’s private park.

Reynolds couldn’t resist. Frontside five-0.
Andrew Reynolds, Stevie Williams, Terry Kennedy, and Theotis Beasley were all stoked.
Not a party without a food truck.
Party’s over. Congratulations again, Riley! Hell of a year.
