“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.” Vans Pro, Daniel Lutheran (aka Dan Lu) has found a way to harness the power of the sun and share its light with the world through his infectious stoke and positivity. Our rail-chomping Robert Plant doppleganger’s aura shines brighter than the Albuquerque desert sun; truth be told we often leave the generator home on night missions and solely bring Dan Lu to light up the spot. Our Vans family and the skate world is a better, brighter place thanks to Dan Lu.
