Check out some more coverage from the Vans US Open of Surfing via Torrey Cook of AR4T Gallery.  

The other thing about this years Vans US Open is the art. Vans has always been true to the culture of surfing and skateboarding. We all know that skateboarding and surfing are historically more expression than sport, but sometimes in the wake of big sponsored events it’s hard to get that point across. This year on the skate side of the US Open, the family at Vans came up with The Van Doren Invitational where the worlds best skateboarders will compete. Being true to skateboarding, it’s not just ramps and bleachers set up on the sand. Vans spent extra time building a tribute to the famous Marseilles France Skate Park. A legendary spot. Russ Pope brought in a crew of heavies to paint – Mike Giant. Rich Jacobs. Nathaniel Russell. Neil Blender. Matt French. Zio Ziegler
