Building a scene takes time and lots of work. For over 40 years the skaters in Atlanta have worked together to build one of the best skate scenes anywhere in the world. Grosso and the Love Letters crew took a trip to ATL to check out the scene.
Vans Park Series has proudly announced the official 2018 VPS Pro Tour roster, inviting the top-ranking men and women pros from the 2017 season along with new Tour Challengers and Wildcards.
