Following the success of the A.skate Foundation’s Autism Friendly Skate Session at this year’s Vans Downtown Showdown, Vans is proud to announce a very special auction of art that was produced live during the event. Featuring the works of globally renowned artists such as Rich Jacobs, French and Jay Croft, the auction presents a truly unique opportunity to not only own a one-of-a-kind piece of art, but also to really make a difference to the lives of young people living with Autism. Head on over to the Vans Skate page and have a look at the artwork up for auction! 100% of the auction proceeds will be donated to the A.skate Foundation.
Each piece of art will be auctioned alongside a pair of equally unique custom Vans Slip-Ons, hand illustrated by the artists, making for a truly fantastic gift, for yourself, or others!
The auctions are hosted on eBay.com and will run untill 18:00GMT on Sunday, November 24th.

In part two of the Geoff Rowley series, he talks about moving to California with the Flip team, skating with the Tempster, shooting pics with Dan Sturt, and how taking a brutal slam is almost as good as the make.
