Skateboarding DVD Video Review:Thrasher's King of the Road 2006

Thrasher's King of the Road 2006 - DVD Skateboarding Snowboarding skateboard snowboard DVD Video Review Three Star skateboard DVD review rating

Studio: High Speed Productions
Released: 2006
Rating: 3 Stars


Here we go again - 2 weeks to cross the country for a $20,000 prize. Four teams have to do tricks in a book, visit particular cities and meet some fairly bizarre challenges.

The Four Teams

The four teams were: Zero, Toy Machine, Baker and Darkstar. Each team had to locate a mystery guest to join their crew.

At this point no one should be surprised that Zero won. They have won every year they have participated. It's formula - they get out there and do a ton of stuff. They don't just go by the book, they skate everything they see. I'm sure this attitude accounts for the success of the Jamie Thomas sk8 empire. That d00d knows how to make things happen.

As always, I have to bitch about KOTR and it's format. I love the concept, but something in the editing always leaves me wondering what the Hell is going on. Watching the flick, you often don't know who is doing what or where. Sometimes it gets a little random. Don't get me wrong (he said hoping his Thrasher subscription doesn't get "lost") KOTR is a cool DVD. I just wish they would make it longer and try to organize is a bit more.
