Vans Demos Wellfleet, MA Skate Park

On June 4, 2008 the Vans team rolled into Wellfleet, MA to do a demo at the Wellfleet Skate Park on Cape Cod. It's hard to tempt pro teams to trek way the hell out here, so it was awesome that they came out.

Free hot dogs and energy drinks were served as kids (and some of their parents) answered trivia questions for free t-shirts, hats and sweatshirts. MILFy moms seemed to get free swag regardless of their Vans trivia knowledge. It's always pays to be a hottie.

This time out I managed to take a lot of really crappy photos... as you can see. Actually, I didn't take all that many photos, but the ones I did take sucked. I've never billed myself as a photographer and this venture proved it irrevocably. It was a cool demo although it was pretty much a free-for-all. There was talk of a best trick contest, but everyone seemed to just go their own way.

I wish they had structured it more and introduced the Vans team. I didn't know who the hell any of them were. Pros? Ams? Ya got me!

A good time was had by all and the skating was incredible. Stuff ranged from insanely big airs and cool tricks to those just soaking up the scene and having a blast. The guy in the first 2 pics was doing all sorts of crazy stuff, but he made it seem effortless and he looked like he was having a blast. Gotta like that.
