Vans presents the Legend of Vert Attack and the Riders of the Lost Art

Vert Attack went off with its usual bang last weekend, with coverage of gnarliness a-plenty flooding our, and presumably your, social media feeds. For those that couldn’t make the event itself, here’s the full results and a brief write up from Vans, alongside a selection of photos from the weekend courtesy of Eken Eriksson.

Check out some of Pixels’ coverage for video evidence of what went down, and make sure to make it over to Malmo for next year’s!

Vert Attack continues to offer an onslaught of skateboarding in its purest form. Each skater is there to do what they do and to help push everyone else to do the same. 
 
The finals saw winners from the last five years or so doing exactly what they did to win previously but with even greater trick selections. Clay Kreiner opened with his winning run from last year, Bucky Lasek held runs and accomplished the impossible, Sam Beckett met the ramp vertically and chiseled away with a constant barrage of tricks, Jeromy Green had the run of his life, whilst Paul-Luc never fell off. Finding two people in the audience that would have been able to place the eight guys would have been statistically impossible.

Prizes were handed out, no one got rich from the loot, but some love got spread to non-heat winners.
