Having seen Brighton Zeuner skating during the Vans Park Series in 2018 & 2019 we instantly became big fans of her. Get to known Brighton better in this short documentary by Patrik O’Dell for Vans.

Another strong edit from Russia by Dmitry Kononov. You might wonder what “Karelia” could be meaning? Well, say no more:

“Karelia, the geographical area of North-West Russia – or as some call it, the ‘Scandinavia of Russia’ – is on the Finish border and is renowned for its forests, lakes, swamps, rivers and fresh summers. But how good is it for skateboarding?

Vans Russia’s Eugene Nikolaev was born in Karelia and this is where he started skateboarding. His plan to visit his hometown with the team fell perfectly during the moment the pandemic closed all the borders and international traveling became mission impossible. Thanks to decent weather, endless daylight and proper tour guiding, a week-long expedition up north with 20+ people resulted in an unforgettable experience and a solid tour clip.

Rough spots of Petrozavodsk and Kondopoga that had been shaped by Soviet architectural traditions and harsh winters provided a unique terrain for improvisation on skateboards. Vans Russia’s main team mixed with national flow riders and legends helped turn this edit into one for the books. Eugene Nikolaev showed us Karelia and now we want to show it to the rest of the world.”

Belgium’s Harry Billiet took his friends Jonathan Vlerick, Jeroen Bruggeman, Arthur Buyltinck & Timothy Deconinck out to film and “Betty” is the result of that.

Vans Presents a new short film about Cher Strauberry, providing an inside look into her role in shaping and growing the queer skate community. She is taking us back to the early days, shedding light on the experiences leading her to become an influentiual figure in the queer skate community.

“Now that we’ve put this hole in the wall, there will be trans girls and boys who will skate better than us, be more confident in themselves, be more outspoken, who will just know more than we knew..”

A film by Patrick O’Dell.

We have met Johnny last year while we were on a trip to Montreal to visit some friends, work on a new issue, and to hang out with Alex Forbes. The last one is responsible for all the hot talent coming out of Canada skating for Vans.

The wait is over. Vans presents “Alright, OK”, featuring Elijah Berle and Gilbert Crockett and a special guest appearance by Justin Henry. A video you do not want to miss out on.

A film by Greg Hunt.

This is the last time you will see Kader in a pair of Vans and the first time you are going to see him skating Nike SB’s – unofficially.

A film by William Strobeck filmed by Tyler Warren.

This one is a Must-Watch!

“After Yann Horowitz kissed his boyfriend in celebration of winning the Vans Park Series African Continental Championships in 2018, Yann’s fearless yet fabulous style became the talk of skateboarding. Yann realized his skating and sexual identity were becoming intertwined, and he had to ask himself, “Do I really want to be the ‘gay skateboarder’?” In the past five years, questions of sexuality and identity in our culture have come into the spotlight, and individuals like Yann have faced the complicated balancing act of being both an inspiration, and still holding on to who they are. In this short Coming Out Day documentary Skateism and Vans followed Yann back to his roots in South Africa, to find out more about where he came from and where he’s headed.”

Have you seen THIS?

A legend given his roses by another legend! Let’s be happy that we are still getting content like this from the late great Grosso.

We have been aware of him for some time but his appearance in the last Lotties video really took him Florida Man to one to watch.

Is EU-SOTY still a thing we all care about? If it is than Rob Maatman is a very strong contender in 2020 because his output has been great this year.

At the same time, congrats on the switch to Vans, Rob, it felt like it was time for a change.

You gotta have love for a true skate-rat style skate shop. Lotties is a strong staple inside and outside of the scene, they are based in.

This video from Hong Kong-based brand Victoria is so dope! From the spots to the edit to the skaters doing the tricks, it all works well together. Kyota Kamei really did a good job on this one!

We don’t know about you but once this health crisis subsides and we can make a list of travel locations Taipei is going to be somewhere near the top!
