Vans – Get in the Van part 2 (Best Friends – Surf Bitches)

Categorised as BLOG., BLOG., MUSIC., SKATE.

 

We posted a Yoofs track earlier this week and Yoofs posted this earlier, “Our bros from Sheffield, Best Friends are on this new vid from Vans. Check it out” 

So what the hell, Yoofs are great, Best Friends make the sort of beach and sun drenched guitar music that skating was probably fuelled by when a surfer stuck some trolley wheels on a 2×4 plank of wood, and obviously Vans are the greatest shoes on the planet. Plus the skating is great, it’s the sort of English skating that Americans will never understand because they are so spoiled by sun blushed rendered concrete and stairs everywhere they look. No, in Britain we are always having to make do on cobbled streets and roads which work through car tyres faster than the drawing part of being hung, drawn and quartered. 

To quote vans:

“Back in the long gone days of summer, Powley once again gathered together an assortment of Vans flow riders and took to the roads of the UK looking for spots in his trusty yellow VW wagon, this time around heading towards the South East, landing feet first in Essex.

Waffle-youth’s Nick Remon, Dave Watson, Matthew Nevitt and Jake Collins were all in tow for three days of rain-dodging, DIY spot modification and dealing with overly aggressive OAP pedestrians. We even went to Nick Remon’s native Chelmsford as well – that’s the birthplace of the radio, don’t you know?”

Full sized wooly mammoths, spooning bananas and stoner triad BMWs are apparently pretty common in Barcelona, or at least that's what Asia's photography makes you think.
