See Kenny Anderson perform the longest nose manual in history on his epic journey from L.A. to Vegas.
“L.A. TO VEGAS” is a short film celebrating the launch of Kenny’s new pro shoe, the KA-ONE. Watch Kenny attempt the longest nose manual in history from his current home in Los Angeles to his hometown of Las Vegas. On the journey, he passes by iconic landmarks like Cherry Park in Long Beach, the L.A. River, the 405, and the desert, before he hits the Vegas strip and finally his old neighborhood. He is joined by many of the friends who have influenced him, his skating, and who have helped him get to where he is today. This isn’t just a homecoming back to Las Vegas, it is a return to Converse, the brand where it all started for Kenny.
Kenny Anderson talks about shooting the “L.A. To Vegas” commercial and his inspiration for the concept behind it. He also points out some highlights from the days of shooting when he exceeded his previous records for performing continuous nose manuals during the film segments.
