2. 2006 Rookie of the Year
In 2006, Davis continued to open eyes and make jaws drop, placing second in the U.S. Open halfpipe competition. Uncorking spins, tweaking out grabs, and leaving sheets of powder behind, Davis proved he was worth the hype. That same year, he landed two Rookie of the Year awards, establishing him as one of the hottest new faces on the snowboarding circuit.
