From Vincent Alvarez to Christian Hosoi, here's some more gems from the Van Doren Invitational. Thanks again Vans-that was one kick-ass contest!
From Greyson's psycho float to Raven's Rube-a-Dube to Hatchell's trick wizardry, this was one of the wildest finals we've ever seen. And Raney's transfer? Just wait!
The Vans US Open in Huntington Beach is going off with a Marseilles-inspired concrete wonderland poured right on the sand. Here's some gems from practice and qualifiers, with Raney, Hatchell, Blair, and more heating it up! Semis and finals tomorrow.
Thanks to Jim Beam, garlic, road miles, gas cards, Waters and crew, Monster, Contour, Sypniewski, and all the bands. Jaws, Raybourn, Gravette, and four SOTYs—one epic adventure. Hopefully another one is right around the corner...
Stopped in Oxford for a slice of suck, got into a jam and had to bail on Jackson. Made it to the Big Easy and lurked at an indoor bowl. 6am flight on Sunday, fuck this is what we do. —Jake Phelps
24 hours of Memphis. We bootlegged a show at the Gaslight and blew Altown out with an onslaught from Figgy, Gerwer, David Gonzalez, Gravette, Patlanta, and Raney. Some epic shit here kids!
St. Louis under the bridge, from the gutter to the stars. Here's Raney, Fardell, Gerwer, Riley Hawk and the crew. Also, this has one of the gnarliest spots on the trip; Hermann's Hole—a river dance nightmare.
Chillin' in Illinois. Chicago to Carbondale and then into St. Louis—Raybourn's out, Jaws and Gravette step in. Shop owner quote of the day after it was over, "Is there gonna be a product toss?"
Four bands, four SOTY's, and over 30 maniacs—this one's for the books. Detroit Skate Rock City starts Friday. Come one, come all...
