Thrasher Vacation Premiere Photos

Four vans of the world’s best skaters went to Germany for two weeks and you know damn well they brought home some gold. Whoever was brave enough to make it out in the record-breaking heat got to witness the European destruction at Kombu Sushi in Silverlake this past Sunday. Let’s see who came through. —Ben Karpinski
