Vans Presents: Alright, Ok | November 23 | Skate | VANS
On November 23rd, Vans Skateboarding will proudly present Alright, OK, a new skate film featuring global signature team riders Elijah Berle and Gilbert Crockett, with a special guest appearance by Justin Henry. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Greg Hunt—whose talent brought to life Vans’ first full-length skateboarding video, PROPELLER—Alright, OK is yet another masterpiece, encapsulating an epic labor of love by pro Elijah Berle, who worked tirelessly over two hard years to land arguably the best tricks of his career. Elijah shares the screen with Vans teammate and Richmond native, Gilbert Crockett, whose contrasting, eccentric style flows alongside Elijah’s timeless form like yin to yang.
Director Greg Hunt reunites the two for the first time since the release of Vans PROPELLER in 2015, finding skate spots from all over the globe in Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, New York and their home states of Virginia and California. Skateboarding has a gift of bringing together the most unlikely people from around the world, through the love of the simple act of rolling.
In the latest Vans Skateboarding Presents we focus on British Columbia native Breana Geering. Breana shares how she came up in the Vancouver skate scene and how instrumental the love and guidance of her Antisocial Skateshop mentors have been to her success.
In Shari White's 2020 landmark film, CREDITS, the first ever all-womens Vans skate edit, Breana shined through as one of the ripping, fresh new faces in the Vans Family. Fast forward one short year later to 2021, Vans is proud to celebrate her latest collection with a nod toward gender neutrality.
In this episode, hear from those closest to Breana to learn what has shaped her journey as she keeps women’s skateboarding marching forward at a steady beat.

Frog Skateboards, founded in 2015, is less of a brand than it is a group of like-minded people who’ve come together through skateboarding.
