On Saturday Vans hosted 2016’s Girls Combi Pool Classic contest and fortunately Thrasher Magazine’s ace lensman Schmitty was on the scene to capture the action of these ladies as they handled the beast. Have a look at the highlight reel. For those of you that missed the action, you can also visit Lizzie Armanto’s Facebook page where Jeff Grosso manned up and offered up some commentary and filmwork of his own on a live webcast feed.

The Vans Propeller Latin America tour recently rolled through the skateboarding hotbed of Mar Del Plata, Argentina. Curren Caples, Chima Ferguson, Kyle Walker, Elijah Berle, Rowan Zorilla and Chris Russell did what they do best by feeding off the crowd and wrecking the park for the best demo of the tour yet.
East Coast ripper Silvester Eduardo just recently jumped up to the pro ranks. Venture Trucks sends out this congratulatory clip.

Press Release: Chrome Industries is proud to release a short film featuring longtime friend of the brand and Los Angeles based photographer, Van Styles. Between shooting in the streets of major cities across the country, running his own brand and raising his young daughter, it’s a rare opportunity to get to shadow him for a day in and around his native LA.
Van’s days are clearly anything but average. Join us as we go from his house, to the V/SUAL brand headquarters followed by some street skating with Dane Vaughn and Sascha Daley, walking the streets of Downtown LA, taking to the skies via helicopter and ending the night on the iconic 6th Street Bridge on the last night it would be open to pedestrians before they start to demolish it.
Entirely self-taught, Van has risen quickly through the ranks of emerging photographers over the past several years, shooting almost exclusively with the Leica system of film and digital rangefinder cameras and lenses.
Starting today, Van will also do a two week takeover of the Chrome Instagram account where he’ll announce a contest early next week and be posting new works daily. Keep an eye out for an announcement as well about the chance to sign up for an in-person clinic with Van at the Chrome Hub and throughout the streets in San Francisco at the end of this month.
