8: BANG YOSELF 2 - CORY KENNEDY
Top 50 Countdown
The Bang Yoself video-clip submission contest was a constant source of encouragement for us. We received so many unbelievable clips from skaters from all over the world; the response was staggering. With such a large, supportive audience willing to share their hard-earned footage with us, the Bang Yoself initiative made us realize how powerful our platform really was. By the second season, in 2009, there was no doubt that we were onto something with Bang Yoself: Washingtonian wunderkind Cory Kennedy, already revered in his neck of the woods, exploded onto the scene, leaving his Sasquatch-sized footprint on skateboarding.
