A video part can make or break you, both on a physical and marketing level, and this year's Men's Rookie of the Year hustled in the streets and filmed one of the best video parts that has come out this fall. Mike Liddle has officially arrived, as his part in Arbor's 2017 release, Cosa Nostra, clearly shows with high-consequence features and low regard for his body, as Mike spent his winter chucking himself all over urban environments across the globe. Luckily for him, he stayed healthy and kept grinding and it's because of that that he's taking home this coveted honor and joining the ranks of dozens of snowboarding superstars who were just "rookies" back in the day. Congrats Mike!
