Vans Shop Night Party
Vans threw a party for local skateshops at their Huntington Beach park and an epic crew of sponsored ams, current pros and living legends came out to shred. Here’s photos and a video from an amazing night.
I had been hearing rumors that as of April 1st, Vans switched up their liability waivers to no longer enforce people over the age of 18 to wear a helmet. I thought it was going to be another April Fools' gag but Johnny Layton invited me to come check out the party Vans was throwing for the local shops and told me the good news. Skaters from shops all over Southern California showed up as well as a handful of legends and not a single skull was harmed. Thanks, Vans! —Ben Karpinski
