For the first time ever at Huntington Beach, the local skate community witnessed the Vans Showdown, a unique “pointless” street skating contest, far removed from traditional skate formats.

Aiming to promote the fun and cultural side of skateboarding, while showcasing the best skaters in the world, it was Taylor Kirby and Fabiana Delfino who came out on top at the inaugural Vans Showdown. For Taylor, his effortless style and consistent combinations, which included an amazing tre flip up the extra-large euro gap, plus a back three over the Quasi obstacle, made the celebrity judge’s decision easy. Fabiana impressed from the get go with her incredible transition skills and casual runs at pace. Her flawless approach demonstrated that she truly is an all-terrain skateboarder in any type of format.

TWS Vault: Jason Hernandez Episode 10 | Darrell Stanton, Dan Drehobl |…

TransWorld Skate – Episode 10 must be getting close to being half way through filming for Free Your Mind. Darrell was Ewan (Bowman)’s guy, so the Sylmar trick I was just there for second angle. Dan and Rob were the guys I shot with—that’s kinda how we split up the skaters on the TWS projects. Jon Holland, Ewan and I had our guys we would film with and most likely edit their parts. Even though it doesn’t look like it, Dan must’ve been feeling some sort of pressure—he got a lot done. I think he knocked out a good chunk of his part on this trip.—Jason Hernandez Subscribe to TransWorld’s YouTube: Follow TWS for the latest: Daily videos, photos and more: Like TransWorld SKATEboarding on Facebook: Follow TransWorldSKATE on Instagram:
