Vans Skateboarding proudly welcomes the addition of adaptive skateboarder Felipe Nunes to the Vans Family. At just 21 years old, Felipe has already achieved more than most of his non-adaptive counterparts. Hailing from Curitiba Paraná, Brazil, he lost his legs at age six in a train accident. But by age 13 he had found freedom and a creative outlet in skateboarding and quickly began gaining recognition from the global skateboarding community. In a short four-year window, Felipe won multiple contests, receiving a nod from Tony Hawk by officially turning pro for the Birdhouse team and landing the coveted Thrasher Magazine cover.
