Vans Skateboarding Presents: Frog Skateboards & Nick Michel | Skate | VANS
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. New York City transplants Chris Millic and Jesse Alba place Frog’s focus on fun and inclusivity, with graphics that serve as exercises in self-expression above all else—principles that comes through loud and clear in this latest installment of Vans Skateboarding Presents. In this episode, Vans gets an inside look at Frog’s tight-knit crew of friends and shines a light on our own Nick Michel, a rising star in the Vans Family.

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.
The Skate Witches | Skate | VANS
The Skate Witches started as way to create connections in a niche skate scene, and became something more. Tired of not seeing skaters they identified with represented in mainstream skate magazines and films, the founders decided to make their own media instead.
Through a unique blend of skateboarding, art, humor, and DIY ethos, The Skate Witches are creating the world they want to see.

The Tony Alva Story | Jeff Grosso’s Loveletters to Skateboarding | Skate | VANS
With strong ties to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, and its local skateboard scene, Quasi Skateboards’ Justin Henry grew up skating crusty spots and learning the value of putting in work and making each try count. He invited Vans inside that world recently, recounting his journey from young talent to pro, and his determination to give back to the community that has shaped him. As part of an upcoming footwear collaboration with Justin Henry releasing July 6 at select skate retailers, Vans is giving back to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio with a $10k donation. Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mission supports one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
