Vans has launched the first-ever international series for park terrain skateboarding, the Vans Park Series, showcasing the style and talent of some of the most exciting skaters today.
Touring globally with stops in Australia, Brazil, Vancouver, California and with a grand finale in Malmo, Sweden, the series shines a light on a diverse community, dubbed the "Wild Bunch", of young upstarts with DIY punk attitudes as well as some stylish park mavens.
The series will be documented in a exclusive 20-page digital zine including athlete portraits, caricatures and visual vignettes from the tour stops. The photography comes courtesy of Mitchell Tomlinson, co-founder of LifeWithoutAndy.com, who finds himself smack dab in the middle of the action. Check out the 'zine above and head over to the series' website for more information.
