Vapur Goes to the Catalina Island Classic!
May 16, 2012Vapur spent the weekend enjoying the Catalina sunshine, cheering on competitors and getting to know the veterans and trendsetters of the skate industry at Riviera's Catalina Island Classic on May 5-6, 2012. The original 'Catalina Classic,' began in 1977 with a group of elite downhill skaters and has now grown into "a weekend long island skate invasion." This past weekend included a performance from Ben Harper, an invitation only longboard downhill race and a miniramp demo from the infamous Mike Vallely. Vapur was proud to spend the weekend amongst street-cred sponsors such as: Pabst Blue Ribbon, Wheelbase, Zinka!, Sector 8, CSC BoardShop, Riviera Skateboards and Elephant Brand Skateboards. A shout out to our favorites: Justin Reynolds - This event wouldn't have been possible without his efforts. Mike Vallely - Celebrated 25 years as a pro-skater at the Catalina Island Classic. Kody Noble - A crossover skater between hardcore street skating and long-boarding. James Kelly - Winner of the Catalina Island Classic's downhill race. The Vapur team is looking forward to next year!
