Let 'em roll ...

EVER SINCE Back to the Future got me out and rolling, going on road trips has been my favorite part of being a skater. And ever since I started this job I've been desperately trying to recreate the fun that I have when I go on skate trips with my friends--the thrill of new spots, the laughs, and the freedom that comes with being the master of your own destiny on the open highway of stoke.

While King of the Road is a contest with winners and prizes and all that, it's primarily an attempt to just get the good times rolling. And though many may question the fun inherent in making out with a woman 20 years your senior or sacking yourself silly trying to Natas-spin a fire hydrant at 2am in the middle of nowhere, I'd be willing to bet those involved will remember their King of the Road trip experience long after all the demo tours and in-store appearances have been forever washed from the halfpipes of their minds.

I'd like to thank all the skaters and companies who took a chance on this thing (sorry for the little problems--and the benihanas), and my friend Chris Coyle who gave me the idea in the first place.--MB
