Vans’ ‘Alright, Ok’ to Make Its Debut Tonight at 8pm E.S.T.

We’re finally going to get to witness the fruits of Elijah Berle’s labor over the past two years this evening. Alright, Ok will be premiering via Vans’ YouTube channel at 8pm E.S.T. Crafted by Greg Hunt, It features Gilbert Crockett alongside Elijah with a guest appearance from Justin Henry. The video follows the trio through trips to Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, New York, Virginia, and California to capture what will likely be a highlight of 2020’s video offerings. The question on everyone’s mind as of this writing should be whether or not Berle or Crockett’s performances will usurp Mason Silva’s SOTY run. We’ll find out tonight. For now, you can check out this digital zine to wet your whistle for what’s to come.

Watch How Old Decks Transformed into Custom Benches in this Video

Watch Welcome Skate Shop staff and their friends turn old decks into custom benches in this video released by Vans as part of their efforts to promote artists and creativity. Welcome Skate Shop is based in Leeds, UK.

What’s great about this bench is that you can remove the top (the one made with old decks) and now you have a skateable bench. It has storage too so you have a place for your new skateboards or whatever needs storing.

A skateboarder may need to replace their decks in a few months to a year, depending on how hard they grind and how often they ride. Probably millions of skateboards are discarded each year and most of them end up in landfills.

This is just one of the ways worn-out decks can be repurposed. There are also initiatives to recycle and repurpose old wheels to keep them out of landfills.
