Vans‘ first full length video, Propeller, has arrived, and it exceeded our expectations by a mile. It is very rare that a video with so much hype around it actually lives up to everyone’s expectations. Every single part in the video could have been the curtains of any average video, but not a Vans video. From Chima and Rowan, to Dan Lu and Gilbert, to Kyle Walker and AVE, this video is jam packed with the most amazing skateboarding paired with beautiful cinematography. We watched it over and over again and compiled a short list of clips that definitely deserve some extra love…
Vans’ Propeller Clips You Need To Watch
Ray Barbee’s Blunt Heelflip
Don’t get us wrong, it’s not that we didn’t expect to see any Ray Barbee footage, but damn we really didn’t see this trick coming. The image above features one clip of him pushing and hitting the no-complys perfectly. And then there was this… Read More
Vans has been trying to make a video for quite some time. Their team is a perfect blend of the last couple decades of skateboarding including riders like Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, and Rowan Zorilla. They have just recently announced and dropped a trailer for their new video called Propeller. Rounding up the whole team and getting them all on the same page, as far as filming for the video goes, was a huge ordeal alone. Not only that, but they have teamed up with Greg Hunt, the filmmaker behind some of skateboarding’s most iconic videos including Alien Workshop’s Mindfield and Transworld Skateboarding’s Sight Unseen, to make the video. If that isn’t enough to get you stoked, we have laid out some pretty memorable video parts from Vans team riders over the years to hold you over until Propeller comes out.
Anthony Van Engelen – The DC Video
AVE is known for putting out really strong video parts. While most of you may relate to his Mindfield part, we would like to shed some light on his part in The DC Video. It’s worth mentioning that Greg Hunt also made this video. AVE and Greg Hunt have worked on numerous parts together so we can’t wait to see what they come up with for this new one.
