Vans PROPELLER : The Most Anticipated Video in Skateboard History

By - Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

PROPELLER has arrived! 

Vans first ever, feature-length skate video (which has been 49 years in the making) made its big screen debut at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 21st. With a stacked team, Vans and director Greg Hunt did not disappoint, delivering a powerful video with huge parts from newcomers and OG skaters alike. Propeller, which was jampacked from beginning to end with jaw-dropping footage, reminds us why Vans has been such a major influencer and staple in the skateboarding world for the past 50 years.

With Ray Barbee and The Mattson 2 delivering vibes before the film and at the after party, the night was an energetic! An after party replete with free beer, Pizzanista delivered in Vans Propeller customized pizza boxes and bowls of M&Ms kept everyone loose until the early hours of the morning.  Congratulations to Vans, and everyone who put their blood and sweat into making one of the best skateboarding videos in history. Make sure to catch a premier near you, and order PROPELLER on May 5th when it hits iTunes.
