Its time again for the annual pilgrimage to the Kootenays for the Josh Evin backyard bowl bash! This event which has traditionally taken place in late June was moved ahead to August to avoid the cold and rain that’s plagued us the past 2 years. There’s nothing better than the Koots in the hot sun and we aim to soak it up big time!
So grab yer board, grab a tent and meet us there!!
Last Sunday Vans hosted the annual Roadblock contest on Granville Street in downtown Vancouver.
The premise is 4 shops are invited to build an obstacle and then our teams compete against each other one obstacle at a time. There’s a $1000 up for grabs per obstacle and although there’s no official “best obstacle” award – we take great pride in ensuring that we have it every year!
When the dust settled we were triumphant in winning 2 of the 4 obstacles with Langley’s Coastal Riders taking the other two. Huge props to Blvd teamsters : Adam Hopkins, Des Hoostie, Conlan Killeen, Danny Hagge and newest member Adam Richter. The boys killed it all day!
We’re stoked to announce the Kensington Contest for 2013 will go down Saturday July 20th at 1pm.
Heading into its 3rd year this contest (presented by Vans footwear and Black Label skateboards) brings out some of the best bowl/pool skaters around for a chance at a piece of the $1500 prize purse.
This event is open to all ages and skill levels with an entrance fee of $10.
There will be a bbq, refreshments and music on site.
Don’t miss it!
