KOTR Memories 2003

Posted: May 27, 2010

Gearing up for KOTR 2010, has me thinking about all the great King of the Roads from yesteryear. Here's some photos out of the KOTR 2003 box.



Atlanta legend, Fred Reeves, wasn't quite sure what to make of us when we assailed him at an X-treme park, but was a good sport and helped us out anyway.


Johnny Layton wasn't even on the actual Toy team when he joined the KOTR.


Gareth, Diego and Beagle (Josh Beagle) tackle the dreaded Natas Spin challenge somewhere in Florida.


It's not a KOTR unless there's some half-gay shit in there.


Adrian Mallory, crooked ground the ATL rock rail.


A spookily symmetrical Fowler.


One of the best backside disaster slides in the biz.


Now that's a KOTR smile, boy!


Scott Bourne was our Mystery Guest. Double axle over the real shallow stairs of Tahoe's Strawberry Lodge.


Scott's got one of those inverts that looks like an egg in photos. To put it in modern terms, like if a dude's varial heel looked like a hardlfip in the air. Yeah, that's probably not helping.


When you think about it, it's pretty wild that Josh Beagle got his name taken by another dude. Front rock.


He was a great TM who didn't skip over life's finer things.


KOTR always brings together an eclectic mix - Tony E, Pommier, Harold, Caswell and a zombie Scuba, for example.


The best skater of all my old friends, Jason Phares was one of the reasons the KOTR became legendary. I just realized this photo is flopped. Fuck. You get the idea.


Like I said, Johnny was flow when he came on the trip. After his outstanding performance on KOTR however, the boards, shoes, chicks and cars came in quick succession ....


but I can say I knew him when he was a regular kid - just trying to shred.

740TH1213PC1.jpgIn This Issue
Be careful opening the July 2015 issue because this Vans Propeller-themed beast might just cut your damn fingers off. Featuring interviews with Zorilla, AVE, Rowley, Caples, Pedro, Dollin, Dill, Chima, Trujillo, K-Walks and more, you're probably going to need a crowbar to pry the damn smile off your face when you're done reading this one. In addition, the Visualtraveling crew rides the edge of Arabia, Cab talks classic covers, Neckface celebrates a decade-long party with the mag and Daan Van Der Linden gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment (you're gonna wanna remember that name). There's not going to be any space left on your bedroom walls after you rip the good photos out of this issue. Tell mom to buy more thumbtacks.
Add this one to your collection.
