Vans "Off the Wall" Design Team Teams-Up

Share:
A couple weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hosting a group of creative minds from Vans for a special 3 day Board Blitz. They put their L.A. lives aside for a few days, slowed down to the pace of a New England winter and learned to take it one spokeshave pass at a time. We broke them down into teams of two, with each duo building a different shape including a 5'10" Waka, 6'5" Seed and 9' Root. By the end, after sharing a lot of laughs and even more lobsters, the teams came together and created some seriously beautiful boards. But a picture (and video) speaks a thousand words. Vans at Grain Surfboard Tait - from a local New England family - made the Van's trip happen. Only seems right to give him the first photo. Vans at Grain Surfboard Day two, three teams.
