The Vans Spring Classic kicked off at the weekend, with a slew of transition rippers from various corners of the globe descending on Riccione, Italy to session in the sun and enjoy an incredibly looking miniramp set up. If you missed the weekend's live stream, we can safely tell you that the weekend was a display of absolute insanity and a testament to just how fucking consistent, creative and gnarly people are getting these days. Check out our edit from the event, then click through for a photo gallery to see what madness Joe Buddle captured photo-wise; Grant Taylor, Dannie Carlsen, Aurelien Giraud and many more, absolutely killing it!
