The 2003 Thrasher magazine Skater of the Year, 2004 TransWorld SKATEboarding Readers’ Choice recipient, and 2007 TransWorld Best Street Skater winner, Apples is admired by every skater who knows what’s what. With more than a decade’s worth of accolades heaped on him by the skate industry, a stable of iconic video parts, including 2013’s “Soul Rebel” part for Element, and the unwavering respect of his peers, Apples has always kept a cool and humble head about everything. Maybe that’s why he’s on every all-time favorite list.
