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.

At 61-years-old Alva, 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.

The Aces: Vans Sidestripe Sessions | VANS | Vans

Vans – This week’s session features music by The Aces. The indie alt-pop band was established in Utah by sisters Cristal and Alisa Ramirez in 2008. Today the band is made up of childhood friends Katie Henderson (guitar), McKenna Petty (bass), Alisa Ramirez (drums), Cristal Ramirez (lead vocals and guitars). After years of practicing in a garage and playing local events to gain buzz, The Aces sought to take things to the next level and eventually found a home with Red Bull Records. Capturing their angst and real-life experiences as young women, The Aces released their debut EP; I Don’t Like Being Honest. The EP’s single “Stuck” was inspired by the uncertainty of being in a situation you feel trapped in. The song quickly captured an audience and earned the 38th spot on the Billboard Alternative Song charts. In 2018, The Aces released their debut full-length album, When My Heart Felt Volcanic, to a slew of acclaim and recognition from music outlets. NME celebrated the album saying, “The Aces’ debut is nothing less than bloody brilliant.” Following the album release, The Aces went on tour with alt-pop band 5 Seconds of Summer and later announced their first US/Europe tour. In the summer of 2020, The Aces released their sophomore follow-up, Under My Influence. The album once again captured their real-time struggles and exploration into self-discovery. The Aces’ frontwoman, Alisa, told NYLON, “I think, the deeper you go and the more specific you get with your experience, weirdly the more interesting and more relatable it is for other people.” Listen to The Aces on the Vans Spotify Sidestripe Sessions Playlist: https://bit.ly/VansSpotifySidestripe Art in this episode comes from Linda McNeil.

Weird Waves Season 3: Tanker Surfing | Surf | VANS | Vans

Vans – For our latest installment of Weird Waves, the crew took off to Texas to investigate a more industrial powered form of wave riding, commonly known as tanker surfing. In this episode the Weird Waves crew plan to explore what it means to be a tanker surfer. Yes, when big ships go by there are people who hunt down the waves they create, otherwise known as tanker surfing. We thought it would be good to start directly with the man who coined the phrase ‘tanker surfing’ itself, Capt. James Fullbright. This story begins in Galveston, Texas.
