The 2016 Van Doren Invitational is upon us and the bowl has gone through some major changes from year’s past. We had Gary Young take a run and do his best to talk his way around the bowl…as you’ll be see, the course is fast, tight, and a little dangerous, haha.
Riders; Jared Short Jesse Kennedy, Beau Fisher, Bensen Frapiccini, Charles McConnell, Shannon Stabb, Marjorie Couturier, Alex Brookes, Jake Shanahan, Bryce Bugera And Sam “Reddog” Neumann
Brazil’s “gift to skateboarding” Tiago Lemos was filming a video part in the same vicinity as legendary skate filmmaker Ty Evans one day when he was cast in what was possibly the biggest skate film of all time: WE ARE BLOOD.
WE ARE BLOOD, a multi-million dollar, multi-continent-spanning skateboarding epic thrust Tiago onto a whole new level as the film’s undeniable breakout star. Shortly after, Tiago left his home of Brazil to start a new life in California, the home of skateboarding.
