Machine Memories Part 3 - KOTR

In 2006 Toy Machine made the foolhardy decision to go up against the Zero team on the King of the Road. We got last place, sure, but I'd like to think we got first place in good times. Well, maybe more like 2nd or 3rd.

No one could accuse Ed of not giving it his all. This is shortly after his spray tan for the Miami guido challenge.



Confidence has never been his short suit. He got past the velvet rope, no problem.


Simulated madness at Austin's Psycho Ditch.



Layton was nearing the peak of his powers. Overly-uber fronside 360 in San Angelo, Texas.



Billy's always reliable for a salad.



Josh grinding into the Buddy Holly fountain in Lubbock, Texas - recently dismantled.



Matt B, with some sort of Rasta joke.



This would have made a good 'Anatomy.'



Layton in Austin.



Someone gets their board focused.



Totally partied with Sieben - oww-owwww!!!



Matt B took care of the over-40s. No problem.



Josh grinded that rail at UT to 180 out.


Pre-Internet celeb status, Kincade was just along for the fun.



After we explained what it was, Josh had no problem with the sweeper. 'You mean I just jump on it and drop back in?'



Victorville smith. When Josh nailed this, we all thought maybe we had a chance.

Malcolm Watson was awesome as our mystery guest. He even got the tattoo. Seems pretty tame these days, but at the time, I was really surprised.


I went for the worst haircut. Grimes barely batted an eye.



There were some good times, but for a few it was the worst time ever. That's the way KOTR is, I suppose.




Ups and downs. Strikes and gutters.

Skater of the Year 2014, Wes Kremer, floats onto the April cover with a sculptural Ollie to fakie and the party continues inside as Wes and his best hemmies go loco in Gran Canaria. The yearly T-Eddys continue to shine and shun; Bones penetrates the language barrier in Poland; The Midwest gets tested by Birdhouse and a Skate Loteria photo feature helps you brush up on your Español. Muy bueno.
