Can’t thank Vans enough for the chance to see legendary skaters like Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain and Christian Hosoi skate the Chelsea Piers Bowl at the 2012 New York City Bowl-A-Rama contest on Saturday last weekend. Spent the rest of the time out skating on the (potentially) last weekend of warm weather and nights attending Vans events celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Steve Cabs pro model shoe, The Half Cab. Not a bad weekend in the Big Apple.
Met up with Eric Elliot, Andrew Colbert and Geech at the new-ish L.E.S. Skatepark before the 20th Anniversary Half Cab Party at the House of Vans. One of the funniest skateparks . . . when not swamped with kids.
The spot was called Best Pizza- we had to stop for slices. 4 cheese white pizza with caramelized onions. It took 3 of us weighing on how to spell “caramelized” before I got it right for my Instagram post.
Arrived at the Chelsea Piers Skatepark for Bowl-A-Rama and guess who’s walking out . . . Steve Caballero. Holding boxes of his own shoe. I Instagrammed this and he commented on it. What skater wouldn’t fan out on that?
