Wake up to the news this morning that 13 video edits stuffed full of Essex pride are awaiting your vote for the annual Lords of the Swords vote. The votes are piling in right now. Don’t miss this one.
All of the teams involved have made it through to the finals of this year’s video comp and chosen by the amount of points they picked up from the book of challenges. As a result, there are 2 comps being voted for online this week. One with the the top 10 of the main LOTS comp and a pro comp with 3 teams, one winner.
Get yourself over here and watch an array of footage, some of them featuring the likes of Nick Remon, Alan Rushbrooke, Mikey Joyce, Carl Wilson and many more.
This is just a quick heads up to let you know that a plethora of teams will be on the annual Lords of the Swords video mission across the whole of Essex filming their socks off for this year’s comp on the weekend of 24th-26th August. Once the damage has been recorded and edited, we will bring you the full vote so that you can all pick your favourite edit from the crop and a winner will take the honours.
Watch 2011’s entries to this here and get hyped for the return.
This year, Axe Distribution rolled out a comp inspired firstly by Thrasher’s annual King of the Road jaunt, and an Irish comp of similar name. The competition’s aim was to involve small underground skateboard companies who do not usually get to compete in such events in the UK. It was never about the end result, but all about skaters getting involved and have a laugh, i’m sure you will see this reflected in the six video edits below. Various tasks were set for each team to complete, as you will discover in each edit.
The winners of King For The Crack will be decided by popularity via facebook likes. Remember, you can vote for as many edits as you like, just click on the red links below to find the videos for each team.
If you have not visited us this weekend you would have missed the most frantic 2 days of voting for the Lords of the Swords 2011 video comp. 9 videos from the road trip comp were hosted on Saturday morning in this feature alongside a gallery of photos from Tom Halliday.
After a huge amount of votes Team DSD have picked up this year’s incredible trophy with their fantastic video edit. Well done to everyone involved that made this year’s comp so special. All of the teams will be getting smashed right now and skating a mini ramp at the Hooga Bar in Chelmsford!
