Hawaii's gorgeous environment sometimes leads people to take it easy on skate trips. But the AYC squad went psycho on this journey. Just look at this line-up: Nyjah Huston, Stevie Williams, Jaws, Riley Hawk, Stephen Lawyer, Al Davis, and Derrick Wilson.
No complaints when you’re hangin' in Hawaii, but the Yacht crew didn't just post up with their toes in the sand. They got down to biz. Video premieres here on Friday.
Damn, he makes it look easy. Nyjah crushes this back lip so effortlessly that his grass roll-away seems like the most challenging part for him. And he sticks that, too.
We have a new feature with a simple concept - burn down the spot. Nyjah kicks things off by tearing this rail a new one.
DC decided to surprise Josh with an appreciation night commemorating the release of his tenth shoe "The Wolf."
This line would be a lifetime achievement for most. For Nyjah, it's just another day in the life. Dayum!
Nyjah is a human wrecking-ball. Look at the way he punks that kink at the end. The gnarlitude cannot be denied.
The SOTY party went off Saturday night. Birdhouse was crowned KOTR champs and Wes Kremer took top honors. Check out some photos of the madness here.
Here is where the big points are earned. This has to be the heaviest KOTR to date. Nollie 3-flip fs board? Jesus...
In this final episode, Nyjah continues his handrail assault, Majerus gets sent to the hospital and Clint dies for all his KOTR sins. Winners announced now!
As the teams converge in their final city, Curren battles Fat Bob, Smolik flexes his tech and Nyjah tackles two of the most hectic kinkers you'll ever see. Only one more episode before the winners are announced Saturday night!
Louie grinds a harsh 30, the rocks take revenge on Clint and Nyjah's piggyback ender has to be seen to be believed. New shit, KOTR-style!
Clive swaps spit, Raybourn goes Gou, Nyjah plays with fire and Louie takes it off the top rope as KOTR blazes on!
The shit hits the fan as KOTR reaches Skatopia - pipes, poultry, Peter Smolik and then somebody gets their windshield smashed in. And this is only the halfway point!
We'll be announcing the 2014 Skater of the Year this Saturday night, but until then check our top 8 finalists and let us know who YOU think should take the only title that matters. Congratulations to all our contenders. What an amazing year!
