Hammeke sent in some photos from his trip to Costa Rica with the Active team that's featured in our August mag. More to come.

Right off the plane. Spots are looking rough

We got picked up by Emanuel Guzman in the Turismo.  This sticker tells the police you are tourists spending money, paying for a Costa Rican to guide you.  On the drive back from the beach there was a police roadblock and while approaching Emanuel says, “Uh oh, They are going to search us and there's nothing I can do to stop them.”  We drove right by them.  “They would never pull over a turismo car.” He said while laughing.  Slash immediately requested to stop so he could finish the shit that he almost dropped in his pants.

The Ramada hotel down there is also owned by Active so we were in plush accommodations

Imperial is the beer of Costa Rica.  It's pretty light and sweet so you can drink a lot of it throughout the course of a day

740TH1213PC1.jpgIn This Issue
Be careful opening the July 2015 issue because this Vans Propeller-themed beast might just cut your damn fingers off. Featuring interviews with Zorilla, AVE, Rowley, Caples, Pedro, Dollin, Dill, Chima, Trujillo, K-Walks and more, you're probably going to need a crowbar to pry the damn smile off your face when you're done reading this one. In addition, the Visualtraveling crew rides the edge of Arabia, Cab talks classic covers, Neckface celebrates a decade-long party with the mag and Daan Van Der Linden gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment (you're gonna wanna remember that name). There's not going to be any space left on your bedroom walls after you rip the good photos out of this issue. Tell mom to buy more thumbtacks.
Add this one to your collection.
