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

    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!

    Not a lot of skate companies last 20 years, much less keep it consistently awesome. The stars came out to celebrate two decades of the best skaters, graphics and videos in the biz.
