2012 Top 10: Tricks

We looked at hundreds of shots that made parts this year and trick after trick riders we going bigger, landing cleaner, and getting more technical. But to make it on this list tricks couldn’t just be stomped or done with style, they also had to be progressive and in some way raise the bar.
