Pools, pouring 'crete, BBQ at granny's, and brewskis were all checked off with Fred Gall back East. One hell of a week—featuring Fritz, Young Will, Max, Xeno, Andrew, Cranston, Brian B, Luke, Petillo, and all other NJ Scum.
Here's a bunch of Midway Point hijinx, Jaws slams, and a legendary LA spot. But most of all, Raybourn's loop is even more impressive when you see his wild attempts.
El Toro is so big that you don't get many tries—each and every attempt could destroy you. Here's Arto unlocking a monster front board.
An extra make or two here, a twist of fate over there—and Real would have won this thing. They really went for it, they're good sports, and they have a ripping squad.
Miniature golf courses are oozing with skate potential. Lucky for us, one closed down in the Bay Area, and the abandoned course was all ours.
Every team had fun this year, but Chocolate really had a blast. Here's a bunch of outtakes and extra angles.
Here's the Highest, Longest, Most awards. Every KOTR there's weird tricks and funny moments, but this edit shows that some truly incredible skating goes down. Huge thanks to Enjoi, Chocolate, Real and Birdhouse. What a rad year...
Birdhouse ends strong to get the win. Mike Davis, Clive Dixon and Clint Walker are skate demons, Wee-Man swings by, Jaws blasts the biggest ollie of KOTR (of course), and you gotta see the enders with Gravette and Raybourn. Amazing. Congrats, guys.
Ben's been ripping non-stop before, during, and after King of the Road. Point a camera at him and you're going to get as much footage as you want. Here's a quick blast of his timeless skating.
Here's Real in the final stretch. They have to push Arrighi into a pool, they meet up with Lil' Wayne, Brock battles a kickflip late shove-it, and TJ Rogers again tackles some wild tech moves.
The stoke and delirium combine as Chocolate nears the end. Here's a gnarly pool roll-in session, tech madness, filmer hijinx, a Too $hort cameo, and Cory Kennedy continues to rip while gaining no points.
Enjoi goes down South for a pool session with Salba, a prank call to Shier, and a big snapper at Willshire from Wallin as King of the Road nears the end of the line.
A brutal spot creates an unforgettable skate mission. This includes hard labor to move two barriers, wet ground, hard slams, a narrow runway, and a dangerous landing.
