Following on from the success of Kyle Walker winning SOTY, Daan made it a Vans double by winning the European Skater of the Year for 2017 last night at the annual BESA Awards.
“Its' hard to remember just one outstanding thing that Daan achieved in 2016, because there’s certainly too many! From January 2016, when he received this award for the first time, Daan has been shredding every single day, gaining respect and recognition from his peers as well as Skate generations combined. I have no doubt that he will keep on riding these tracks for many years to come, and continue to write his own unique story: the story of one of the greatest Skaters of our time!“ Says Alexis Jauzion, Vans EMEA Senior Brand Manager, Action Sports.
Daan, who hails from Holland was joined by the cream of the crop from European Skateboarding for a night paying homage to all things great about European skateboarding. Congratulations to all the winners and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
Finally, from all the Vans family, congratulations Daan on a very special year!
