Ripping around Washington State and shredding skate parks is never a bad idea. We did just that on a hot lap around Eastern Washington and a trip to the Peninsula for this Washington Leg. With the likes of Sky Siljeg, Mikey “L’il Swayze” Swearingen, Chad Fenlon and Edwin Swagerty in tow this was a D3 stomping, high heeled high kick of a good time. Look for more Legs kicking in your zone this summer especially if you’re from Vancouver, BC, Colorado or So-cal.
Good to see these guys still making good music.
You’re Welcome hits stores sometime this fall.
The non-profit has already started a surf-mentorship program where kids can earn donated boards through community service, initiated a waste management program, and procured a school bus that facilitates education. Our next project is a health center and we’re using the crowd-funding site indiegogo.com (link to our page) to help raise money from surfers who have been touched by this beautiful paradise.
Each year, we send pairs of blank canvas Vans to our favorite artists, celebrities, athletes and friends and ask that they customize them in any way they’d like. We had some amazing people involved this year, from legendary artist John Baldessari to actress Emma Roberts. We caught up with a few of our other ambassadors and asked them to tell us about their shoes. Don’t forget, head over to vans.com/customculture and vote for your favorite pairs of Vans customized by high school kids now through May 13th! Music: “Sweet Back” by Ivan Boogaloo Jones
