Emerica comes through with the goods in Colorado. Leo goes up, The Boss goes down, Trevor Colden makes a great first impression, and Figgy, Westgate, Suski, Heath, Spanky, SZA, Provost, and Herman can't be faded. Damn, what a lineup...
The party went off, and so did Leo. Here's the Phelper handing over the Skater of the Year trophy and Leo's speech. Everybody loves Leo—Congrats bro! For all Skater of the Year 2010 coverage check here.
With a name like Connor Champion, you know his parents expected big things. Hopefully being one of the rippingest skaters out of Raleigh,NC is what they had in mind. Connor reps Spitfire, Thunder, Nike SB, and Vertical Urge Skateshop.
In 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.
