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 final hour of the trip. Pfanner just bagged a beauty and what else was there to do but attempt to kick Cody off a ladder with Jamal the Ball. Even though it looks like a flinch, Cody is the ultimate good sport. Would you let your friends try this on you? Until the next trip - thank you Vans for a great week of skateboarding, laughs and adventure.
