To introduce the special edition Vans x Star Wars collection of shoes and apparel launching in June, Vans gathered a crew of phenomenal talent at the Vans Off the Wall Skatepark in Huntington Beach, CA to film a skate contest set back in 1980. After legendary skateboarder Christian Hosoi finishes his run, a rookie wookiee (played by Steve Caballero) rips the bowl and receives mixed scores from the judges. Tony Alva, Steve Van Doren, Steve Alba, Jeff Grosso and others can be seen cheering in the crowd alongside Stormtroopers, Jawas and Chewbacca.
While the majority of the synchronized “doubles” footage features Andy Macdonald at Tony’s ramp, there are numerous others featured including: Kevin Staab, Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Neal Hendrix, Jesse Fritsch, Tom Schaar, PLG, Lincoln Ueda, Guy Mariano, Geoff Rowley, Chris Cole, Chris Haslam, Corbin Harris, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Daewon Song, Neil Blender, Ben Raybourn, Lance Mountain and Rodney Mullen. Sit back and enjoy. Cheers!
