2015 Van Doren Invitational Vancouver Photos & Video

Vancouver’s legendary Hastings Bowl played host to the world-class Van Doren Invitational skate comp for the third year in a row, and while the skies spit rain most of the day, the Canadians maintained good spirits while waiting for the inevitable action to go down. In order to get the contest underway at the earliest possible moment, locals of all ages pitched in with leaf blowers, buckets, squeegees, mops, rags and flame throwers to dry the bowl so the skateboarding could begin. Stefan Goulet of Vans Canada suffered a concussion for his efforts after he slipped into the slick bowl and smacked his head on the concrete. He was knocked out temporarily and taken to the hospital to make sure he didn’t suffer any permanent damage. Big respect and thanks to Wee Wong, Alex Chalmers, Renee Renee, Sluggo, Stefan Goulet and all that volunteered to help get the bowl ready for annihilation. Big thanks to Steve Van Doren and Vans for keeping it going and making this incredible bowl contest a total success. Eventually, the rain went away, and the contest went off. Check out this video edit by Alicia Gilmour with photos by Olga Aguilar.
