THE "KING" OF KONA 2017
With the rise of the "Skate Everything" mantra, the King of Kona has become a premiere event showcasing all aspects of skateboarding over the course of 3 days. Throughout the weekend skaters will compete in various events at a chance to be crowned the "King of Kona". King of Kona is a unique and one of a kind event that allows skaters 72 hours of total access to one of the most iconic skateparks in the world.
A key focus of the event is to just celebrate skateboarding and bring together a family of skaters who just love to skate. Part party, part skate contest, part festival, it’s the perfect combination to create as close to an environment of the big events as in the north. 2017 will be no different and each year something new is added and learned from previous events. King of Kona provides a fun environment for people to just get rad. Without a doubt some of the gnarliest skating you’ll ever see will for sure be going down at Kona January 27-29.
We're also proud to bring back last years King Steven Pineiro as our special guest judge, and can not wait to crown a new king in 2017!
