When we say skateboarding was taken to new heights in 2013, it's not a figure of speech -- Flip pro and de facto X Games Big Air legend Bob Burnquist took to the sky in a helicopter in his stuntman skate part for Oakley this summer. And if Burnquist attacked skating by air, then Nyjah Huston must be credited for leading the assault by land with his Thanksgiving handrail assault for DC Shoes. For as much as we have seen a return to bowl and bank skating in 2013, Bob and Nyjah are making sure that skating continues to progress in new directions.
