Nestled in the artistic beachside community of Laguna Beach, Thalia Surf has spent over 20 years as a melting pot of alternative surf arts and crafts. The original “alternative” surf shop, Thalia Surf continues to be a waypoint for surfers interested in the more artful side of surfing.

The Vans x Thalia Sk8-Hi 138 Decon VR3 SF is inspired by the Laguna Beach surf experience, and Thalia Surf’s longstanding partnership with Vans in Laguna. Featuring a hand-drawn sun detail, this sustainability conscious high-top shoe captures the spirit of living and surfing in Laguna Beach, CA.

Our team has set ambitious sustainability goals. Big or small, all of our efforts add up to positive change. To earn the VR3 Checkerboard globe logo, at least 30% of the product must be made up of one or a combination of recycled, renewable, and/or regenerative materials.
