Women's Rookie of the Year: Jill Perkins
Jill Perkins has been on the radar for a few winters now but last year, she burst onto the scene and introduced herself as a street-centric rider who has the skills to stand out at any session. A few weeks ago, she dropped a full part that nearly shut down the internet, with tricks like fastplants, tailtap back 180s off roofs and proper front boards on seriously consequential spots, and the result is a Women's Rookie of the Year title. Jill is going to be around for quite some time and she progresses quick, so keep an eye out for this young woman and try to keep up.
