Vans Propeller Global Premiere

We hurled our way down the 101 from Santa Barbara back to LA to the heart of Compton to check in with our homie Gabe Clement at the Matix HQ. My phone unfortunately died, but not before I could grab a photo of the mini-ramp the fellas have in the back. Pretty damn tight but between the corners and tiling under the coping, this thing is fun! What more do you really need? Huge thank you to all those who showed us around and the biggest thank you to Vans for the invite out to check out the video! Stay tuned for details on the Tampa premiere of Propeller coming 05/03!

We pretty much followed these wheels through the process of being created. After they’re printed, they’re all laid out on trays to cure like cupcakes.

The final step is the printing of the wheel graphic seen here on a 3 color press.

When the wheels are poured, the mold is left open to let air out. The other side of the wheel has to be cut to match the molded side, seen here.

The next day we’d made the two hour trek north of LA to Santa Barbara where Skate One has built their decades of legacy. Adam’s a huge fan of the Ripper graphic and was beyond hyped to find this photo prop.

Halfway through the party, Ray Barbee joined Tommy Guerrero to jam for the crowd. Where else are you ever going to see these two legends play together? This may have the highlight of my trip.

Immediately after the video, we were ushered out to the back parking lot where the after party took place. Cheers and thanks to Vans for giving skateboarding a timeless classic skate video! Oh and thanks for the free booze!

The line for free beer was getting pretty unruly while kegs were getting switched out, so Steve himself took it into his hands to keep the crowd hyped. Serving pizza out to all and taking time to grab a slice for himself. Going above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a great time.

Just before the video started, the entire Vans team came out on stage. Look at how stacked that team is! The video is definitely decades and generations in the making!

While waiting for the video to start, the opening act way Ray Barbee and the Mattson 2. Ray’s son also held it down on the bass, just outside of the frame. I was particularly stoked to catch this, as I’d missed Ray and the Mattson 2 two weeks prior down in Sarasota at Compound Skateshops 12 year anniversary party.

After Ray ripped the final song, Steve Van Doren himself made one hell of an entrance riding in on this huge motorized Sk8 Hi.

We headed over to Fairfax right after to check out the Kayo store. On top of having some sick merch-outs in the store, the whole facility is an old bank, with a full operational vault. Inside were Gold bricks and a display for Richard Angelides new Adidas signature Super Star Hi. Definitely a cool concept in a store that doubles as a show room for all their brands.

From Kayo, we went straight to the video premiere for Vans Propeller at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown. The scene was packed with skaters, industry heads and old and new friends. Everyone was pretty anxious to get through the sea of people and get a good seat.

After checking out the offices where the designs go down and raiding the store for some fresh kicks, Pierre André Senizergues himself gave us a history lesson on the inception of etnies which pulls it’s name from the diverse skateboarding communities ability to cross different ethnicities and cultural boundaries. Pierre had noted that the Natas and other shoes were built with so much rubber because he and other free style skaters were so damn tired of duct taping their shoes. A huge thank you to Lyndon Cabellon and the whole Sole Tech family for the hospitality!

Another rad shoe sitting in the collection from years back is the collab shoe they for Jason Dill with Fucking Awesome back before the boards and pretty much anyone knew about the brand. These dropped in 2008 and were super limited to 715 pairs. I tried damn hard to get a pair back in the day.

More rad nostalgia in their timeline is the first pro model skateboarding shoe, The Natas. This shoe came out in 1988 and apparently was built to last. Check out all that rubber on the upper, I’m sure this thing was pretty damn near indestructible.

We started our trip at the Sole Tech HQ. Front and center when you walk in is a ton of history from their decades in skateboarding. I thought these boards hanging from the ceiling were pretty cool and wanted to make some offers on that Ellington board for my personal board wall.

Right as we are pulling up to our hotel in Gainesville for Luke’s wedding, we see this hill bomb right outside of the front door. The whole squad took advantage of this thing. It's much gnarlier than it looks. Make sure to check the edit and see it in action.

Final stop, Kona! This was my first time here and its a lot to take in! Huge park with everything you could imagine to skate. The old school concrete course for sure was the highlight. Chris Reitz getting a taste. He just came back from a knee injury and we are all hyped to see him back on the board.

Treshan helping replace the brake pad. Too bad not even 5 miles down the road we had to get it towed. Seems that the axle was slowly breaking and we were lucky the tire didn’t fall off! Thank god we had someone looking over us that day.

The van was having some problems on the road with its brakes. We pulled over and thankfully Josh Knight was an expert on cars so he took a look. Unfortunately, it was determined that we needed to find the nearest car parts place and replace the break pad.

Eric McKenney loaded up the van with some SPoT family and employees heading to Kona in Jacksonville to check the scene out before the Florida Bowl Riders Jam and Hall of Fame. After that we suited up to attend our good homie and face of Case of the Mondays, Luke Pallone’s wedding in Gainesville the following day. He’s been working at the park for years now so almost everyone was going there.
