Vans EU 10th Annual Shop Riot Contest Photos
Recently, Vans EU held its tenth annual Shop Riot contest in the majestic, fashion famous city of Milan, Italy. The contest had all the right ingredients in place for an epic party: food vendors, amazing corse, shop crews and skateboarding’s favorite son, John Cardiel. Although there could only be one winning shop, every person in attendance felt the overwhelming good vibes with the local teams ripping together. Thanks, Vans! —Federico Casella

In typical Vans fashion, everyone eats
And in typical EU fashion, everyone drinks as well
Cardiel showed up and watched the skaters from the DJ station
And so it begins
Maksim Kruglov from Traektoria Boardshop, front feeble
Rob Maatman from Burnside switch 50-50d the handrail first try, leaving everybody speechless
The Traektoria guys double teamed the double set with a couple of crooked grinds
Simon Perrottet owned the double set, unloading a ton of tricks including this switch heel
Aref Koushesh grabbed someone else’s board and slid a backside noseblunt on top of the stairset. He also slid some money into his pocket
Jacopo Carozzi floats backside for the viewing pleasure of the photographers on deck
Things got a little rev’d up when Cards started throwing money
Italian skate legend and Bastard co-owner Max Bonassi was feeling the vibes
Nassim felt ‘em too
Everybody wanted to give John some love
And the winner is… Burnside!
Thats a wrap from Milan! Let’s eat cake!
