In the beginning of October we catched up with our Portuguese friend and rider Hugo Cardoso and recorded him during one entire day at his hometown: Ericeira. 
A day with Hugo usually consists on a good breaky followed with an early surf till the wind pops up and surfskate till the sun sets. The idea is pretty simple: to be able to surf all day no matter what.

Costa Mesa, CALIF. (October 16, 2019) – There’s no doubt that longtime Vans global team rider Anthony Van Engelen’s storied career and vast impact on skateboarding’s history precedes him. This year, for holiday 2019, Vans proudly introduces an updated AVE capsule with new apparel and a unique AVE Pro colorway, building on the initial debut this fall.

For AVE, good enough doesn’t cut it; he’s barely satisfied with great. Over his 20-year professional career (14 of which he’s spent on Vans), the Southern California native co-founded influential skateboard brand Fucking Awesome, dropped countless influential video parts and earned Thrasher mag’s 2015 “Skater of the Year.” AVE’s latest Vans pro colorway, a “rainy day” forest night and black, packs the same durability, function and comfort. The AVE Pro boasts UltimateWaffle construction – heel-to-toe Ultracush comfort and cushioning, and a midfoot shank to keep flex in the forefoot – contained in translucent Vans waffle rubber. The head-to-toe apparel collection delivers several new pieces for the holiday season, including a fleece crewneck, as well as tees, long sleeve shirts and a hat in a monochrome palette. Rounding out the collection is the Drill Chore Coat and V96 Standard / AVE denim in vintage rinse wash. RapidWeld no-sew technology utilizes heat-fused upper panels for an extremely strong bond that’s both hard-wearing and flexible all at once, while remaining lighter than conventional stitching. Duracap™ reinforced underlays in high abrasion areas ensure the shoe can withstand the toughest abuse.

The AVE Pro also boasts LuxLiner™ technology, integrating the tongue and internal lining for a more snug, consistent fit. A molded heel counter provides additional structure and heel lock, while a full-length Ultracush midsole acts as built-in impact cushioning. AVE’s never-quit mentality and uncompromising work ethic carries over into his latest shoe and apparel collection with Vans. If he’s given it his stamp of approval, we know you’re going to think it’s pretty fucking great, too. The AVE Holiday Collection is now available at authorized Vans retailers.

An Original Series dedicated to skate shops and their teams

Amsterdam, Netherlands (October 15, 2019) - After last year’s momentous 10 year anniversary, Vans Shop Riot is back for its 11th consecutive year. Every year since 2008, the original concept by Vans has been promoting Europe’s finest street skaters, in addition to offering the European skateboard community and skate shops an authentic platform for recognition. This year the series finale will come to a dramatic close in Amsterdam’s NOORD skatepark, Netherlands on October 25 and 26, to determine who will be crowned the 2019 Vans Shop Riot Champions. 

Over the past four months, Vans Shop Riot has made its way across Europe, stopping in 15 different countries for the regional qualifiers – victorious shops include last year’s winners and two-time champions Burnside, Netherlands and 2017 champions Skate Boutique, Belgium. They will join 13 other hungry skate shop teams competing for a total prize purse of €15,000. 

Vans Shop Riot finalists will compete across two different disciplines, Mini Ramp and Skatepark format. The highest total accumulated points across both disciplines will determine the top-ranked shop team, crowning them champions.

For the past couple of years Vans have partnered with a respected artist with deep skate ties on the creative execution. This year Vans have teamed up with Swedish artist, Jacob Ovgren. One of the artists behind Polar Skate Co.’s iconic graphics, Jacob’s unique cartoon artwork is instantly recognizable within the skate world and an amazing fit for the Vans Shop Riot concept. Jacob will be hosting an art show at Klaproos Restaurant on October 25.
