This week we haul this mess up to the Pacific NorthWest to INTRUDE on Willis Kimbel’s horde of decks and skateboard-related vomit all in the name of internet content. Your average “wall board” show THIS IS NOT – but rather a “what the f@ck is that?” ”what dimensions are that shape?” “What went down on that deck?” And “who did those graphics?”… monocle-worthy items if you will? Let’s just say there will be some heavy lifting! With our own Sam Hitz spearheading the show, INTRUDERS promises to have notes of obnoxiousness and left-field questioning that will make board collectors of the world cringe. Yet unable to look away, like a wreck on the highway.
Japan has as great a DIY spot building scene as any place around the world. This Love Note is an expanded look at the scene and the main players making killer spots.
Japan has a long and radical skate history. With so many eyes focused on Tokyo in 2021 Vans wanted to make sure that the rich skate culture and storied history didn’t get lost in the hype of The Games. Japan has a great skate scene that should championed and celebrated long after this moment in history.
This is the last trip the Loveletters crew took with our beloved Jeff Grosso before his passing. Jeff and the crew had a blast meeting the many Japanese skaters from every generation.
