Last Thursday, House of Vans had an opening launch for their exhibition ‘Full Blast: 20 Years of Thrasher Photography by Michael Burnett’ which saw an international crew descend on the tunnel to check out a wide array of photographs from his years at the mag, drink free booze and get stuck into a heavy bowl session. This latter saw Ben Broyd destroying every inch of the bowl to take first place, followed by Taylor Jones – who also won best trick honours for a bastard plant off the roof – and Saul Crumlish, who seems to get better every time I see him.
After smacking my knee and head from coping to flat in the deep end third run in, I decided that booze was the safer option for the evening; luckily, there was plenty of that to keep me entertained alongside Jagger’s impeccable selection of reggae and the exhibition itself, which features plenty of iconic images that you should definitely check out if you get the chance. The exhibition is at HOV until the 8th of July, so there’s plenty of opportunity to do so, and in the meantime you can check out some images from the night below…
