There’s no question that Andrew Reynolds leads the charge on the urban battlefield when it comes to conquering spots. So getting Battle Commander status at The Berrics only makes sense. Watch his part, complete with special guest appearances and his newly released Reynolds Vulc Low by Emerica.
Emerica footwear is available in Canada through Timebomb Trading.
Marc Johnson, Rick McCrank, Stevie Perez, Rick Howard and Jon Sciano were on the road swing, along with Ty Peterson, Will Marshall and Pat O’Rourke from Supra Distribution‘s Lakai Canada team. All the angles were covered, as you’ll see in the following #StuporTour edits from both Supra Dist. and Lakai.
Daewon Song, Zack Wallin, Mike Anderson, Marc Johnson and more from the Matix team head out to the Sierra Nevada mountains, where they visit a ghost town, dip into some hot springs and skate the Lone Pine and Mammoth skateparks. Obviously the adventure was even more enjoyable when suited up in the latest Matix Fall ’14 gear.

It was a scorcher during the Day 1 Qualifiers of the Van Doren Invitational on Friday, July 11th at the iconic Hastings Bowl in Vancouver, BC. 33 skaters got whittled down to 14, which will advance to the semis on Saturday, July 12th to join the gnarly list of pre-qualified rippers. Notably, locals Adam Hopkins, James Clarke and Rob Boyce made the qualifier-cut.
The heat was on (literally) for the Day 1 Qualifiers.
Bones Wheels rider Patrick Ryan goes frontside over the hip.
Kevin Kowalski from Lifeblood Skateboards was ripping all day. He qualified 3rd with moves like this risky-business frontside invert.
Tom Schaar, the youngest VDI competitor at 14, qualified 9th because he was flying all over the place. Case in point: this stalefish.
Another case of going big was local James Clarke. He qualified 13th, just above the cutoff, despite barely being able to walk due to a knee injury. This dude charged and this frontside air is proof.
Josh Borden on grasser duty.
At 44 years old (the oldest competitor in the VDI), Rob “Sluggo” Boyce is showing no signs of slowing down. He landed a perfect backflip in the deep end, which got the biggest rise from both the crowd and the contestants (which all freaked out and threw their boards in the bowl, then lined up for high fives). Respect. He also took 14th – the qualification cut-off.
