Year’s Best New Pro: Rowan Zorilla
Baker announced Rowan Zorilla’s Pro status with the Certi-Fried Pro video in March. His part had one of the best opening lines of the year and easily the best ending roll away. In between, his part was full of surprises; a triple-set impossible wrapped around his back foot like a gift. His supporting role in Vans’ No Other Way featured this ridiculous rail—it was clear that in 2017 we’d be talking about the 800-pound Zorilla in the room.
