Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2018

It's a holiday which means you're probably out skating your favorite spots with the homies, but take a second to look around at who you're sessioning with. Most likely it's people of all different colors and backgrounds. Hard to imagine that this would even be possible without Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his contributions to aid in the destruction of injustice, racism, hate and bigotry in our society. Dr. King was a humble man, but not afraid to stand firm in the face of inequality, not just for African-Americans but for all humans.

Clash of the Crews is one of our favorite annual events. We get to see some old homies and go head to head in friendly competition.

But besides all that, Vans hooks it up proper with enough extras to keep it super fun for everyone. This year's event takes place January 20th and you can expect another great weekend.
