Vans Park Series: Salt Lake City Photos
Welp, that’s it, folks! Another year down for the Vans Park Series. The finale took place in none other than the sunny and alcohol-deprived (c’mon, 4%?!) Salt Lake City, Utah. A beautiful city filled with beautiful people, and now—the home of a brand new, world class skatepark thanks to our friends at Vans. The spirits were high and the skating top shelf. Anthony Acosta was there to document the action from the 5th and final stop of the 2019 Vans Park Series.
