The plan behind the #VansDustyLines project was to travel around Italy in search of forgotten places to skate and explore with just a rough plan and no clear idea about what to expect. The Vans Italian team ventured into several magical places all of which were either abandoned, partly destroyed and absolutely desolate. With a […]

from Long Island Boards
It’s our great pleasure to announce that we will be bringing a new team of next generation American riders featuring Noah Fischer, Patrick Welsh, Jordan Crosby, and Ryan Bishop.
Our first video Home Zones features three of the four new riders, each in their home area on the hills they grew up skating. These new riders are four of California’s best riders and are already on their way to being the new standard of top level riding in downhill skateboarding.

Ishtar X Tussilago

Ishtar X Tussilago is a short film by Maceo Frost starring Downhill longboard Rider Ishtar Backlund in the epic mountains of Norway. Combined with an epic soundtrack from Swedish rock band Tussilago, the film is a glimpse into the profound feeling of believing in yourself and living one’s greatest dreams.

Skateboarding, art, music and snowboarding intertwine in the timeless, weird and wonderful world of Jamie Lynn. Jamie opened a door to a universe of art and inspiration when he took everything he dreamt of doing on a skateboard and applied it to snowboarding. Jamie rides and lives life on his terms and is one of the most authentic, soulful people you could ever hope to meet. The fact that Jamie has ridden for Lib Tech, Volcom, Vans and Dragon for over two decades speaks volumes on his integrity and loyalty to those who have supported him through thick and thin.
Jamie’s interview for Snowboard Magazine Issue 11.4, The Timeless Issue was as unconventional as the 41-year-old Auburn, Washington native himself. We were all over the place — from Seattle skate spots, to impromptu parking lot jam sessions, and a nature walk at his compound where we watched salmon spawn. In that space I felt free of “civilian life” responsibilities and had a taste of how this iconic human maximizes his days. To Jamie, time was irrelevant. Life, on the other hand, is another story.
