O switch backside tailslide de Tiago Lemos no Macba foi eleita a melhor manobra de 2017.
A manobra surreal, registrada e postada em redes sociais, se tornou um viral instantes depois do skatista acertá-la no pico mais clássico de Barcelona.
O que seria uma manobra para encerrar um vídeo, não conseguiu se manter em segredo por causa da espontaneidade da sessão e grande número de skatistas e turistas que estavam acompanhando Tiago andar registrando com seus smartphones.
O Trick of the Year é realizado desde 2015 pela Street League Skateboarding. A SLS lista as manobras mais repercutidas em cada ano e o eleito pelo juri ganha dez mil dólares.
🏆 2017 Trick of the Year 🏆 This year was by far the toughest year to judge! Anyone in the top 5 could have taken it. Like it or not, it was 🇧🇷 @tiagolemoskt incredible Switch Back Tail on the huge MACBA ledge in Barcelona that came out on top. Its hard to think of other skaters that could Switch Backside Tailslide that high of a ledge for that long. Even Tiago didn’t think it was possible until that session at MACBA, when he turned a joke amongst friends into reality. Skateboarding isn’t always just about doing the most technically hard trick or hucking down the biggest set. There’s something to be said about making a flatground, manny or ledge trick look beautiful while still blowing people’s minds. That’s something special that only a few people can do. From being reposted by heavy skate media outlets to all the Pros & Legends that backed it, Tiago’s Switch Back Tail took it to another level and will still be respected 10 years from now. Congrats @tiagolemoskt on taking the 2017 Trick of the Year and the $10,000!!! 💰 📹 @brian_panebianco @felipe_decarvalho @activerideshop #trickoftheyear #2017trickoftheyear
