Predictions for 2022

We usually have one of these threads, right?

Tony Hawk is the first skater in space, doing zero gravity 900s (I know he did the zero gravity plane thing before but space is next level)!

Jagger Eaton wins SOTY

2022 will be a year of mullets. (I was skating just before Christmas and actually saw some younger skaters cutting each others hair like this in rollersnakes car park.)

Couldn’t find a thread from last year but wondered how many previous predictions came true?

Did @AndySipowicz know something we didn’t with regards to less international travel? Shit, gaps in handrails came true as well!

The first known Covid case was identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. So things where already starting to look sketchy, I guess?

Water sponsor - there is liquid death and Tony Hawk did a collab board that had his own blood in it.

Current season of BOTB won’t finish.

Looking at that list I’d say I did pretty well.
Would have lived Alexis Sablone to get SOTY but I’m starting to think that boat’s sailed.
I do see girl skaters embracing the adrenaline of big rail skating though. A sort of new age Misled Youth/Welcome to Hell era.
I hate to be negative but I also see someone getting seriously hurt trying to up thr handrail ante. BMX suffered the loss of seversl top riders to traumatic head injuries. Such an incident in skating would suck but it might also get the helmet trend going for those hell bent on gapping between rails and the such.

I also predict a big scandal breaking involving the berrics which will shut berra up for good.

Pressure flips will have a strong resurgence.

I predict the queen is not going to die this year. I’m saying April 2027.
