Skateboarding Hall of Fame 2017 Awards

The 8th Annual Skateboarding Hall of Fame and Icon Awards Ceremony presented by House of Vans were held at the City National Grove of Anaheim, in Anaheim, California on May 12, 2017, and the good vibes were overflowing. For the first time, Steve Olson took on the master of ceremonies position with class and distinction, the only way the most interesting man in skateboarding could. This year’s inductees were all well deserving and the meaning of these once in a lifetime awards was amplified by the honesty and passion of each of their acceptance speeches. Congratulations to all the 2017 inductees, a big thanks to Vans for their continued support of skateboarding and skateboarders, and respect to all that worked so hard to make this event a reality.
