It feels strange and can be fun for a minute, but skating barefoot is straight-up gnarly and can take you out quick. Here's the best barefoot skating in KOTR history including Grant, Raven, and Jamie Thomas with sick enders.
KOTR is history but the winners won't be announced until AFTER the webisodes air, starting in November. The teams don't even know! In the meantime, check the best photos and videos from our #thrasherkotr2014 feed.
KOTR has begun... and we have the book right here. Take a peek and see what's in store for Element, Birdhouse, and Flip. We may even give YOU the opportunity to complete some challenges...
After dislocating his big toe, Madars Apse has bowed out of the Element KOTR squad to be replaced by handrail heavyweight (and Nyjah's roommate,) Dominick Walker.
Elijah Berle shows his ATV abilities, Stevie Perez battles a backlip shove-it, and the filmer makes a love connection with a girl who has a probation ankle monitor.
A panda gets to second base, the whole team gets the dubstep blues, and Zack Wallin snaps a rare no-comply fakie.
Real is in this to win and the guys find a stripper who skates, Brock gets inked, Brockel does a huge bar snap, and Jake Ruiz grinds one of the gnarliest 50-50s in KOTR history.
Chocolate starts off with an unreal bank-to-wall session, Stevie Perez gets 10 tricks on one handrail, Vincent Alvarez makes everything look good, and Raven gets a wild barefoot boneless.
Oh. Shit. Here we go. Chocolate vs. Real vs. Birdhouse vs. Enjoi. Webisodes start Monday, Jan 6. These are gonna be good.
The February issue of Thrasher is coming packed with a free 90-minute DVD featuring the gnarliest parts from the raddest skate videos of the year—and you can get this mag + DVD for FREE with any shirt or new subscription! How radballs is that?
Weigh the options and vote for your ultimate line-ups for Birdhouse, Enjoi, Chocolate and Real. Pick five skaters from each team. Teams announced soon.
Ronnie Creager never ages, Louie Barletta never met a mom he didn't like, and we never like skateboarding grouped in with "action sports". This is today's episode of Skateline.
