It’s 1980 and Vans, together with Star Wars host a skate contest at the Vans Off the Wall Skatepark in Huntington Beach, CA. Legendary skateboarder Christian Hosoi finishes his righteous run, but a rookie Wookie takes the bowl, receiving mixed scores from the judges. Yep, in recognition of their new collaboration, Vans and Star Wars have filmed a fictional competition, featuring all the big names from that era. Tony Alva, Jeff Grosso and Vans surf team riders Leila Hurst and Alex Knost all make an appearance, as does Steve Cabellero (the Wookie), a bunch of Storm Troopers, Jawas and Chewbacca. Gnarly!
