A harsh contest environment with bowl competitors fighting for a win? Hell no. Everyone had a blast, pushed themselves, and cheered each other on. What a great comp. Thanks everyone!
Now that the dust has settled take a look at some of Rhino's photos from last weekend's contest at Hastings.
Great weather, beautiful women, amazing Canadian hospitality, insane skating, and one of the gnarliest slams of all-time. This one had it all, with Alex Sorgente taking home the prize. Chalk up another epic contest to Vans.
Chalmers opened up the park and everyone got theirs with Sluggo shutting her down. The big dance is today kids. Watch it right here!
If you've been skateboarding in the last 20 years you've either ripped with Mike, ridden in a van with him or had him kick you off the team. Who knew he was also a photographer? Well, he didn't either, but check this shit out! Thanks Mike!
Trust us, you're gonna want to whip around on transitions and float some ollies after watching this. Greyson Fletcher, Grant Taylor, Ben Raybourn, and others. Greyson's line at 5:25 is unreal.
Grant Taylor, Greyson Fletcher, Ben Raybourn, and other Nike rippers went to work down under. Video coming tomorrow.
Garric Ray comes through with this week's 'five' of Cody Lockwood, Frank Shaw, Chris Russell, Rick Fabro, and Ben Raybourn.
Garric Ray brings you this week's 'five' with Kevin Kowalski, Ben Krahn, Frank Shaw, Peter Watkins, and Ben Raybourn.
Ben is on a psychotic skate mission to ride the deepest pits and terrain ever. It's almost like Earth is running out of spots gnarly enough for him to ride. Unreal. Here's his Welcome to Nike part.
Yes, you read that headline correctly. One of the gnarliest, non-stop skate demons has stacked clips for yet another part. This time it's his Welcome to Nike part, and you know it won't be filler.
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.
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.
Generator races, jousting, kegboards, and a near disaster of blazing proportions all contributed to the midway madness in Sacramento.
