Last day on the Isles starts with some cross training.
Posted: April 10, 2013
Always thought the green room would be a little more climactic.
The loneliest discipline.
That's, like, your opinion, man.
SOTY 11 has a look around.
Wait. Is that an adult male?!
Padless madness, always with these two.
A Southern fave - the nose hop tail grab to forwards. Nice.
Gonzo gets prepared mentally. He knows what's next.
Kicked out once, came back, almost dark.
The almost make.
The actual make. In the dark. Totally tubular. Thank you Hawaii! Thank you for everything! Aloha!
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.
