Sleeping in the bushes, 105 everyday, cold rivers, Atlantic ocean, epic spots, castles, van overheating, epic food, and great hosts… Plus Grant Taylor, Peter Hewitt, and Pedro Barros. Thanks again to Diogo and Goncalo for the hospitality. Next up: Berlin.
Vans threw a contest at the Chelsea Piers Bowl and a heavy crew from around the world showed up to rip. The rain held off, Van Doren manned the grill with free hot dogs all day and when the dust settled Lance Mountain took top honors in the masters division and Pedro Barros won the Pro.
The big guns came in smoking up on the hill at Pedro's compound. Peters, Hosoi, Grosso, and Glifberg were all there. When the dust settled, Pedro and Hosoi's team took the top honors, and the Brazilian barbecue was on. Thanks again to Pedro and Andres for another good one in Floripa!
Monster and DC vert party: Good times, no collisions, P-Stone BBQ. End it early or it would've gone all night.
Converse went big and built a bowl on the beach. Tom Remillard took home first and Tony Hawk spun a McTwist on the shark for best trick.
