Toyota Athlete of the Year Nominations

At each Dew Tour stop, judges will nominate their favorite skater. Their runs/tricks are then edited into a piece for online voting. The skater who receives the most online votes after each event is awarded a $2,500 prize on behalf of Toyota, and is then eligible to win Toyota Athlete of the Year. After the final event in Breckenridge, winners from each stop will be subject to a panel of industry judges who will determine which athlete is the official Toyota Athlete of the Year, receiving $25,000.

Judges' Bios

Matt Milligan

Matt first discovered Skateboarding in 1986 in the small beach town of Fort Myers, Florida. From the first moment that he stepped on a skateboard, he knew it would become his life. Matt ended up getting sponsored by New Deal skateboards in 1993 and turning pro a few years later in 1996. He bounced around a few different sponsors until 2006, when Father Time eventually caught up and said to hang it up. Matt currently resides in San Francisco and works in the skateboarding industry. He's had a variety of positions in the industry, but is currently is an Outside Sales Rep along with being on the judging staff of some of skateboarding's major annual events. For Matt, to this day, there is still nothing better than an epic session with some good friends. Matt's another firm believer in the fact that skateboarding saved his life.

Jason Rothmeyer

Somehow, someway skateboarding just tends to find people. Jason started skating in 1986 just randomly and ended up sticking with it his whole life, thankful that it was the best accident that ever happened to him. He got sponsored in 1990 by Santa Cruz Skateboards, turned pro for them in 1992, and kept rolling along as a pro all through the 90's until "retiring" in 1998 (retiring meaning the search for sponsors simply ended). While working as a team manager at a contest in 1999, Jason let the organizers know that he would be interested in judging if the opportunity came. He was put on the judging panel of the next event and was off and running. Since then he's judged almost every Tampa Am/Pro, Damn Am, CPH Pro, multiple X Games, Dew Tours, and everything in between. Jason's main goal of every contest is to get the results correct and judged as fairly as skateboarding possibly can. In addition to judging contests, Jason works as a sales rep for Fallen, Zero, New Balance Numeric, and Ridgemont Adventure Outfitters.

Mike Sinclair

Mike grew up skating in North Carolina during the 80's with some friends at middle school. A few years later, he picked up a few sponsors and was lucky enough to make it on Blockhead Skateboards. He came out to California a few times for Blockhead, met a few rad people, and ended up working in the skateboard industry in the 90's. Today, Mike's still happy to be working in the skateboard industry with friends that he met along the way. He first sat on the judges' stand in 1997 at the Skatepark of Tampa after an ACL injury took him out of the Contest. His second ACL injury cemented his position on judging staffs for more and more top skateboarding events. He's been lucky enough to judge such major events as X Games, Maloof, Tampa Am, Tampa Pro, Dew Tour, Damn Am, and many, many more over the past 16 years. In 2010, Mike developed an online contest called "Real Street" with ESPN and has been in charge of all the "Real Street" events for X Games since.

Jorge Angel aka Porpe

Jorge Angel, AKA Porpe, was born in Colombia, but raised in Tampa, Florida. His Colombian parents wanted to give him the opportunity to pursue the American Dream. Inspired by skateboarding at a young age, Jorge has been pushing for nearly half his life. Jorge spent seven years working at Skatepark of Tampa, and during his time at SPoT he gained firsthand experience coordinating events and helping operate the day to day business. The relationships Porpe developed with some of the finest in the industry allow him to continue to pursue his dreams of pushing skateboarding.

Charlie Wilkins

Born and bred in Massachusetts, Charlie Wilkins has been skating with reckless abandon for more than twenty five years, all the while, placing a constant emphasis on giving back to the skate community by designing and building skateparks and contest courses for the Dew Tour, judging contests, running skate camps, and perpetually striving to be a positive role model for young skaters to emulate. Since getting sponsored in 1993 and turning pro in 1996, Charlie has endorsed a variety of companies throughout his career including Powell, Transit, Maple, 5boro, Sheep, Etnies, DVS, Este, Pig, Accel, Krux and Mercury to name a few. Over 14 years, Charlie's judging credentials include the X Games, X Games Latin America, X Games Asia, Dew Tour (every event for the last 10 years), Gravity Games, and Vans Triple Crown contests to name a few. Charlie is currently on Lifeblood Skateboards with a pro model on their Lifers Division and is the lead designer for municipal skateparks with Spohn Ranch Skateparks.

James Craig

Longtime Blind pro James Craig recently hung up his pro board in exchange for a seat next to all the other former pros on the judging stand. James is known for his big snaps on the board, and love for all things Lakers-related that showed up on his pro model graphics. Hailing from Fullerton, California, James was a mainstay of the pros in the 2000's and his part in Blind's WHAT IF still holds strong to today's standards. James didn't stray far from Blind though, as he is now the marketing coordinator and team manager for Blind, Almost, and Cliché Skateboards over at Dwindle Distribution.
