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.

The look of stoke meets the look of surprise: Dan Lu marvels at Gilbert's impromptu relaxation station in the trunk of his Camry. On his way westward, Gilbert is driving his own car from Virginia all the way to Los Angeles.
