What the heck is the King of Memphis or KOM?

King of Memphis is an annual 'scavenger hunt-style' skateboarding competition centered around THE BOOK OF CHALLENGES. The competition takes place all over the great city of Memphis, TN. Various challenges are location-based or you find your own spot to do the trick/challenge. (some skating... some not) There are challenges of different difficulty levels, making it a fun event for beginners as well as experienced skaters. All of the action/challenges have to be captured on video, edited with challenges noted and presented at the ending party where a winning team is crowned. The event promises new friendships and loads of fun and memories to be had for all ages.  The Kick-Off Party and the final competition, video screenings and award party are open to the public to come and watch the craziness.
