Here's Lakai taking the win and a recap of all the insanity from one of the best KOTR's ever. Pure skateboarding, adventure, stoke, whatever you want to call it: a big thanks to Lakai, Vans, Nike SB, and Dekline for joining this strange ride.
All the ingredients for an amazing tour vid are on display here: a ripping team of pros, talented filmers, and new spots you can't believe actually exist. Here's Kenny Anderson, Tom Remillard, Sammy Baca, Julian Davidson, and more.

Yeah, that'll do it. Add this one to your collection.
