Vans seems to be cooking up something new and exciting as time passes, from competitions to music festivals, the festivities are endless. Well in this case Vans has teamed up with an artist by the name of Jay Howell stemming from San Francisco, and this communion marks the first of an animated web series following the stories and tales of Vans skaters. The series is under the name of “Classic Tales”, and it’ll include interviews, stories, as well as loony cartoon antics to tie it in.
The premiere will include Christian Hosoi as well as other skaters being featured down the line from Joel Tudor to Tony Alva, and an abundance of others to watch. Their debut episode will explain Christian Hosoi’s marveling and mesmerizing adventure he had while spending time in Hawaii. It includes a gnarly mushroom trip that he and his friends went through some years back while on the island of kaneohe. I’d like to explain further but its best if you watch it for yourself, also, Christian Hosoi is going on 13 years of sobriety!
Be on the lookout for this series to launch in the near future, you can check it out at offthewall.tv
