Well, another year gone by for the Vans Park Series skateboard competition at the legendary Hastings Bowl here in Vancouver, Canada. I've been frequenting this event for the last 5 years and every year it gets bigger and better, attracting more people to come out and watch the best bowl and park skaters in the world. This year was no exception with the likes of Pedro Barros, Alex Sorgente, Curren Caples, Tom Schaar, Ivan Federico, and a whack of other top skaters.
I showed up early enough and managed to get a decent seat from which to shoot some photos and video which is a challenge because of a couple of reasons; 1) the event is free and always fills up to max capacity by the time the finals start, and 2), it means I have to get up early on a Saturday... ;)
Here are a few of my photos from this years event.
