Stabio, Switzerland. (Mar. 11, 2019) -For the first time in its history, Vans Hi-Standard Series graced Moscow, Russia, having taken place in the city centre at Moscow’s Kant resort. 

Conditions couldn’t have been better in Moscow with blue skies overhead and the sun shining down on the 100 stoked riders that entered. Cash for tricks was the order of the day in two open jam disciplines, big air and rail, where riders were rewarded for pushing the limits and demonstrating creativity for the onlooking crowds. In addition to cash for tricks, two MVP awards were up for grabs, one male and one female. Iliin Mikhail took the men’s MVP title with an incredible display of riding, creatively executing a stylish array of tricks and catching the judge’s attention by using the knuckle of the kicker to blast a frontside 360 to flat. Romanova Varvara was deservedly crowned women’s MVP by confidently attacking every obstacle the park had to offer, notably stomping an impressive cab 540 on the kicker. Both MVP's have earned an all-expenses paid trip to the grand-finale of the Hi-Standard Series in Mount Seymour, Canada to battle against the MVP’s from the other Hi-Standard stops for the 2019 Vans Hi-Standard MVP Series title. 

The Van Doren Best Rail Trick was an incredible demonstration of snowboarding, Chepelev Fedor stood out amongst a ridiculous level of riding to win with a cab 270 front board slide to 450 out.

The Russian youngsters were out in full force showing their seniors that they were coming for them sooner rather than later. Young ripper Dmitriev Yan was awarded Most Improved, holding his own despite his age, including executing a stylish method over the kicker. After shredding hard all day Lenchevskiy Yaroslav took home the Under-16 title, battling to nail a backside Rodeo on the kicker. 

 

The Vans Hi-Standard Series suited Russia perfectly, the vast country has an abundance of character, snow and variety of terrains which has helped create a truly unique snowboarding scene, one which Vans is incredibly honoured to support. There is no doubt that the future of Russian snowboarding isn’t in any danger, with both riders and supporters embodying the Hi-Standard spirit. 

Finally, big thanks to NIKITA SEKH & all the Vans EMEA Team riders who came from across Europe to support and inspire the next generation of riders from Russia at the Vans Hi-Standard Serie; CEES WILLE, SAMI LUHTANEN, ANTTI JUSSILA, SEBI SPRINGETH, SPARROW KNOW & MANS HEDBERG.

VANS EXPLORES THE DIVERSE IDENTITIES AND INFLUENCES OF GLOBAL SKATE STYLE IN THE LATEST CHAPTER OF THIS IS OFF THE WALL

Stabio, Switzerland. (Mar. 06, 2019) - Vans, the original action sports brand and icon of creative expression, unveils the first chapter of its beloved THIS IS OFF THE WALL  campaign, exploring the identities and influences that fuel modern skate style in “Vanguards”. Expanding on Vans’ THIS IS OFF THE WALL narrative, the campaign defines what “Off The Wall” means through a diverse series of digital storytelling and immersive engagements that inspire, enable and support global creative communities. The campaign kicks off with “Vanguards”, an exploration of how style, individuality and creativity shape skateboarding through the lenses of Vans team riders Lizzie Armanto, Brighton Zeuner, Yndiara Asp and Mami Tezuka.

“Everyone has their own unique approach to skating: where they grew up, who they were influenced by – it all affects how they look on a board,” said Vans team rider Lizzie Armanto. “Vanguards” showcases a remarkable roster of skateboarders and examines how the unique experiences of each athlete has defined their own sense of style on and off the board. Highlighting attributes such as Lizzie Armanto’s flowy, surf-skating form inspired by her Santa Monica roots, Brighton Zeuner’s colorful personality that parallels her bold performance, Yndiara Asp’s fearless attitude that made her a standout in the Brazilian skate scene, and Mami Tezuka’s focused sense of timing that was honed over years of studying piano in her native Japan, “Vanguards” conveys a breadth of creative interpretations all founded in skateboarding.

“Our brand’s identity is continually inspired by personalities such as the women you meet in the Vanguards campaign.” shares Erwin Federizo, Vans’ Global Executive Creative Director. “By sharing their stories, we are able to continue celebrating the unique individuals who are living and breathing Vans’ ‘Off The Wall’ ethos. Creative campaigns like this are a true testament to our purpose.”

“Vanguards” represents Vans’ commitment to supporting the longevity and growth of skateboarding. In 2018, Vans embarked on a global initiative to teach women of all ages how to skateboard through a series of skate clinics in an effort to introduce a new form of expression, while empowering the skate community through new perspectives. Vans remains committed to growing and sustaining skateboarding worldwide, hosting a brand-new series of women’s skate workshops across the globe beginning March 8, 2019, International Women’s Day. Throughout the year, Vans will also host Vanguard experiences at Vans Park Series events featuring skate clinics, photo exhibits and experiential activations curated by local athletes and the Vanguards themselves. Visit vans.eu/vanguards to learn more about skate clinics near you.

“Vans extends beyond traditional campaigns by funding efforts that create meaningful interactions with loyalists and newcomers alike,” said April Vitkus, Senior Director of Vans Global Brand Marketing. “Vanguards aims to not only tell a story of four women but invites everyone to experience the creative depth that surrounds what we cherish most – skateboarding.”

“Vanguards” is the latest iteration of THIS IS OFF THE WALL with more stories to come in the months ahead; see the full campaign at vans.eu/vanguards. To share your own story and join the conversation with Vans use #OffTheWall on social media.
