We are very excited to bring out many of the Vans Team Riders, from the young guns to the legends and sharing the Vans Off The Wall Spirit in Bondi…” Says Ben Hapgood, General Manager, Vans Australia.
Tony Hawk will now join fellow “Bones Brigade” legends Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain and Nicky Guerrero as a BOWL-A-RAMA™ alumni.
I’m excited to finally participate in Vans BOWL-A-RAMA Bondi after seeing the action from afar for so many years. It is the most prominent skate competition in Australia and I can’t wait to skate it in person! Says Tony Hawk.
