Vans Texas Filming Mission Photos

In the middle of April, we joined up with the Vans squad for another of their filming missions for their upcoming video project. The location: Texas, Austin and Dallas to be precise. Despite being on the road for three odd weeks, the energy levels were high, and the motivation from all the riders was very strong. Between Daniel Lutheran, Kyle Walker, Gilbert Crockett, Chris Pfanner and Chima Ferguson, some raw skating was captured on video. Here a few behind the scenes moments and out takes from a week of warm weather, hi jinx and hardcore skateboarding.

About 45 minutes outside of Austin is one of America's skate wonderlands - "Doug's" It has anything a thirsty skater could dream of shredding, and a very welcoming posse of friendly dogs. Here Chima gets acquainted with the old catch and return.
