Consider this one of Vans' biggest collabs yet. After teaming up with a host of LA's fashionable hometown heroes and artsy style stars, the SoCal lifestyle brand has joined forces with local skate and apparel shop Jack's Garage and the city of Huntington Beach, where they unveiled massive skate park last week.
Welcoming skaters and BMXers of all ages as of right this minute, the 42,500-square-foot space "offers every terrain offers every terrain imaginable [with an] upper transition bowl area and a lower street plaza area tied together with Vans' iconic checkerboard paving pattern weaved throughout the park." (Of course.) Decked out with tons of rails, edges and ledges, the free and open to the public skate park also offers an on-site Jack's Garage shop stocking essential street, skate and surf brands like RVCA, Volcom, Obey and (obvi) Vans. It's the brand's second skate park in SoCal after their location in Orange.
Vans Off the Wall Skatepark is open daily from 10am to 7pm.
