TransWorld SKATEboarding recently awarded Tommy Guerrero at this years Legend Awards. The award was announced at the 15th Annual TransWorld SKATEboarding Awards in February 2013. The Legend Award aims at honouring individuals in the skateboarding community that have made a significant impact in the skateboarding scene.
As a member of the legendary Bones Brigade during the peak of the 80’s skateboarding craze, Tommy became the face of “streetstyle” when at the time this concept was about to change the face of skateboarding. Tommy put his home town of San Francisco on the international skateboarding map with his creative use of its hills and urban landscape. The first offical “street pro” in skateboarding history, Tommy has influenced what modern street skateboarding is today.
Tommy Guerrero makes some great music that is worth checking out too!
