Steve Caballero


Original Bones Brigader & inventor of the Caballerial and frontside boardslide Steve Caballero is a legend without equal. The mythical man better known as Cab is listed as one of the Most Influential Skaters of All-Time by Transworld. Like a fine wine, Cab only gets better with age; Steve continues to dominate contests well into his 50s. 2017 marked the 25th anniversary of the longest-running and "greatest" skate shoe of all time, the Vans Half Cab, a mid top version of Steve’s first-ever signature shoe, the Vans Caballero.

Interview

WHAT’S THE BEST TRIP YOU’VE EVER BEEN ON?

This last trip to Brazil and Argentina with my wife Rachael, Christian Hosoi and Steve Van Doren. Have you ever been on a tour with Steve Van Doren? It rocks! It was my first time to Buenos Aires and it was a blast. The Argentineans were super stoked and we had a very warm welcome there!

FAVORITE VANS RIDER?

Christian Hosoi because he was meant to ride a skateboard and I love to travel with him. He’s fun, loving, wise, very entertaining and, did I mention… he rips! 

WHAT TRICK CAN’T YOU DO THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD?

Mute 540’s: McTwists.

WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF SKATING?

Painting, hotrods and customs, motocross, skim boarding, snowboarding and toy collecting. 

LAST GOOD BOOK YOU READ?

The Bible, because it’s full of wisdom and knowledge to help me understand the will of God and how His word pertains to my life for guidance, understanding and purpose. The Bible is full of stories about how God has intervened in people's lives and how He used terrible situations and turned them into good and useful life lessons. When they let God be in control of their lives, they experience the grace that has been given through His son, Christ, Jesus, for all those who fall short of His glory and are stuck in their own sinful ways.
