Broken boards equals broken dreams. Chris Russell had it in the bag but one too many hang-ups enabled Tom Schaar to spin his way to the top. Meanwhile, Pedro Barros stole the show with a death defying NBD. 10 years of the Pool Party and this was the best one yet! Cheers, Vans!
Apparently, it was just a rumor that Vans hired security specifically to keep Jimmy away from the premiere. He had free-range to throw his iron-grip and probing questions at every pro skater he came across.
Vans has one of the deepest skate histories out there. They've supported skating through thick and thin and have always had amazing riders. Here's Steve Caballero, Christian Hosoi, Geoff Rowley, Jason Dill, Curren Caples, Elijah Berle, Dan Lu, Andrew Allen, Chima Ferguson, and Alex Perelson.
The wait is over! Last night the Plan B video "True" premiered in Hollywood at the Montalban theater. Check out some photos here.
Cab had a 50th Birthday party blow-out at the Vans Combi Bowl. There were tons of Steve’s friends and family skating and celebrating as well as music from The Faction and Agent Orange. Food, drink, hot rods, Love and Guts Artshow, and Skate Rock. Happy 50th Stevie!
From skate legends to psycho youth, the art of transitions is alive and well as shown in this montage of deep-dish stunts. Only one way to learn to ride pits this gnarly—get in there!
It's a bit easier to strong-arm interviews with today's younger pros, but here's Jimmy Arrighi at the Vans Pool Party tangling with some legends who can hold their own including Cab, Hosoi, Grosso, Lucero, Agah, and many others.
Legends and young bucks converge each year on this hulking concrete behemoth. Congrats to Vans on 10 years of Combi and big ups to Tristan Rennie for coming out on top. This kid went ape...
The Combi got heated up this weekend at the Vans 10th Annual pool party, Congratulations to 1st Place winners Chris Miller Legends, Bruno Passos Masters and Tristan Rennie Pro.
The '90s put a lot of vert dudes out of business, but Stevie Caballero hit the streets and stayed relevant. Here's a highlight reel of Cab's pavement days. Legends skate everything.
Vans helped get a proper skatepark in HB and they had a huge opening day party with Rowley, Hosoi, Layton, Jay Adams, and many others.
It's fitting that Indy would throw a party at this San Jose park which has some of the gnarliest terrain around. Here's Cab, Koston, Raybourn, Gravette, Haslam, Grosso, Red, and many other legends.
NHS opened their museum to a select group of family, friends, and rippers. From Steve Olson to Eric Koston, we all gathered to revisit history and share skateboarding stories in all its glory. Great job Novak and congrats on 40 plus years!
Are you still going to be skating into your 40s? Hopefully you'll still have the fire like these legends. Here's Hosoi, Cab, Grosso, Miller, McGill, and others.
