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.
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...
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 Real team battles harsh bank-to-wall challenges, Mystery Guest TJ Rogers is a tech ledge-wizard, they find a mom who can kickflip, and Jake Ruiz continues to be the big surprise of KOTR with his shocking handrail assaults.
Portland, Boise, Sacto, and Los Angeles. The Real KOTR Team hit it real hard from start to finish and it was a hell of a ride!
Real makes a potato gun, Justin Brock grinds up, across and down a rail, a longboard gets focused, and the team gets 21 females into their van.
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.
Oh. Shit. Here we go. Chocolate vs. Real vs. Birdhouse vs. Enjoi. Webisodes start Monday, Jan 6. These are gonna be good.
Ishod's teammates from Real sit down to talk about this year's SOTY. Lots of laughs and some incredible footage as well.
Hell yeah. A classic skate moment is recreated and the stakes are raised in this awesome clip. With Jake Donnelly, Ishod Wair, Max Schaaf, Tommy Guerrero, and Jim Thiebaud.
The Real Team ripped through Portland, Idaho, Sacto, Fresno, San Diego, and Los Angeles stacking points. The road is treating us like Kings.
The day before King of the Road kicked off, Real got an unpleasant phone call from Ishod Wair. Seems that Ishod pinched a nerve in his back and is completely unable to skate for a while. After one phone call, Jake Donnelly is in and it's on!
To help congratulate Jake Donnelly on going pro, Real added three new filters to the InstaREAL free mobile App and are giving away five of Jake's first Pro decks. Details here.
Here's some weird skatepark challenges, Jake Donnelly getting a pro model surprise, and more ripping with Busenitz, Cavedoni, Torgerson, Aultz, and others.
Hammeke went to Minneapolis and met up with some guys from Real and DC for Day of Familia celebrating 8 years of Steve Nesser’s skate shop.
Rhino checks in from the Gonz photo show featuring work from Joe Brook, Gabe Morford, Benjamin Deberdt, and more.
Jake Donnelly skates with a coveted combination of speed, power, and style. He handled this part in less than a month while back home in Buffalo, though you'll notice the face-melting ender happened right here by the Bay. Wow.
