L.T.K.R.F

"Let the Kids Ride Free" (better known as L.T.K.R.F.) is a grassroots effort started by Volcom to make skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding competitions free. It is a way to give back to the community and for kids who don't have their own money or sponsors to be able to ride and compete in an environment that is "more like a gathering."
