Alex Lawton is our new Australian Skater of the Year! The technically advanced Queenslander had one hell of a year in 2017 – including some heavy footage in his video part for Transworld, he travelled the world with DC, turned pro for Element and landed two covers. Your votes saw him rise above the rest in our voting poll, so raise your glass for our new Slam SOTY! Congrats, Alex!
