One of the key figures in the early evolution of skateboarding from a wholesome, contest based “sport” into the freewheeling art form that it is today was Tony Alva.

Tony is now 63 years old, the oldest professional skateboarder in the world, is considered by many to be the godfather of modern day skateboarding. Alva’s brand of aggression and bravado in the 70’s set the stage for the way skateboarding would be forever defined.

Vans’ The Tony Alva Story chronicles T.A.’s humble beginnings on the streets of Santa Monica to his rise to superstardom as part of the legendary Z-Boys, his inevitable drug-induced implosion and his ultimate rise from the ashes to accept his rightful place as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations of skateboarders the world over.

Written & Directed by Rick Charnoski & Coan “Buddy” Nichols/Six Stair Productions

Starring: Tony Alva, Jeff Grosso, Wynn Miller, Steve Olson, Shepard Fairy, Gus Van Sant, Josh Brolin, Jeff Ament, Glen E Friedman, Robert Trujillo, Brad Bowman, Pete Zehnder, Jeff Ho, Stacey Peralta, Elijah Berle and more.

Vans – Vans Korea is proud to present Eugene Choi’s welcome video ‘SONCARINA’.

Eugene joins the Vans family at the ripe age of 19, bringing with him his fearless style and all-out attitude, along with his talents in art and music, making him a no-brainer addition to the Vans Korea skate team.

Vans Europe Presents: Kingdom For A Cooler | Skate | VANS | Vans

Vans – Mid-February is always a difficult time to pick a destination for a skate trip in Europe due to the winter. This year the Vans Europe skate team, along with some of the Vans Germany team, decided to fly across the Mediterranean and check out the spots that the Kingdom of Morocco had to offer. As if they knew that this would be the last time they could travel together as they’re used to for a while, the crew blazed through the beautiful country without leaving a spot untouched. While chasing the sun and the warmth from Tangier all the way down to Agadir, there was no shortage of laughs, hi-jinx and good times. Featuring: Joscha Aicher, Axel Cruysberghs, Jan Hoffman, Flo Marfaing, Joseph Biais, Marko Kada, Dustin Dollin, Victor Pellegrin, Alexey Krasniy, Yeelen Moens, Oscar Candon, Chris Pfanner, Kalle Wiehn, Pepe Tirelli & Val Bauer.
