Onward to classic 'crete, Hawaii Gone Coconuts.
Posted: March 25, 2013
Every drive is a postcard.
Aha! The epic terrain of A'ala Park!
Seems like only yesterday ... the year was 1986.
This sequence of Hosoi was confounding to say the least.
I think this is where the cult of calling frontside sliders 'flash 'n rolls' began. But I digress.
Ok, back to the action.
Velodrome style with 3/4 kickback.
Pedro took to it right away.
A sort of bash and float approach, I guess.
Our sherpa, Kyle, was killing it!
Overpick. Wicked 808 style!
Spider pressed blunt to chainlink. He'd been there before.
BK air over the fence. Wow.
Almost got landed on a few times to get this one-footer.
Heatin' up. Only one cure for that.
Ah, the ol' plate lunch.
The Big Kahuna
Spider gets tubed, Grant and Pedro blast big and the SOTY takes on the biggest wave on the Islands.
The Volcom crew sample some epic DIY 'crete deep in the Maui countryside.
Escape From SOTY Island
Sometimes a video is so gnarly it defies an appropriate caption. Let's keep it simple: the skating here is absolutely incredible and you've got to watch this. Featuring David Gonzalez, Grant Taylor, and crew.
Firing Line: Kyle Walker
When you think "street alley" you usually think dark and crusty. But Kyle finds a clean and wide beauty and stitches together a rad line.
Hall Of Meat: David Gonzalez
This slam would have broken the arm of most people. David's either made of rubber, from another planet, or just plain tough as nails.
Firing Line: Alex Midler
At some point in his young life this kid definitely learned how to skate.
Bashing walls and bombing hills, Grant Taylor goes Haole-Wowee in Hawaii Kai.
Classics: Chris Senn "This Is Skateboarding"
Chris has always ripped, but he shocked a lot of people with how gnarly and well-rounded this part was. Colin Provost introduces a classic from the 2003 Emerica vid.
Firing Line: Alec Majerus
The spot was hectic this day but Alec sneaks in a rad line.
Firing Line: Louie Lopez
It seems like Louie grows taller every clip you see of him. And his skating gets more gnarly as well.
Escape From SOTY Island Teaser
When the teaser itself stands alone as a great clip you know the full video is going to be epic. David Gonzalez, Grant Taylor, Louie Lopez, Collin Provost, Pedro Barros, and Geoff Rowley. Coming this Friday, 3/29/13.
Over-vert just makes it overly fun. Soty Gone Coconuts, part 6.
Dingy of Stoke
A small seagoing halfpipe feels the SOTY sting.
Man Bites Shark
Grant gets to it and the media battle a maneater!
The Style of Life
Rooftops get ripped and Provost ollies everything with Volcom on the Islands.
Provost and Gonzo praise Jah and blast the f@&K off! SOTY Gone Coconuts.
