AVAILABLE TO WATCH NOW!
After months of anticipation the #VANSFIRSTLAYER Japan short film is available to watch following a successful launch in the Vans store, Lyon.
The First Layer project began back in 2015 showcasing the talent Vans Snow has across Europe.
Each year snowboarders are constantly searching for the best snow and venturing to Japan seemed like the perfect choice. The plane was loaded with a unique squad of Vans european riders, mixing eclectic riding styles and approaches heading on a journey through deep powder and endless urban riding opportunities. Riders, Nils Arvidsson, Valérian Ducourtil, Markus Keller and DBK went on a crazy powder mission to the northern island of Hokkaido. Meanwhile a crew consisting of Sami Luhtanen, Will Smith, Cees Wille and Benny Urban explored the main island and looked to discover the exciting street spots on offer…street & powder is what it’s all about.
