  • DLH House of Vans Takeover

    House of Vans London presents:

    DEAN LANE HARDCORE TAKEOVER

    20 Year Anniversary.

    Friday 15th November, 6pm.



    It's been 20 years of the DLH Funday, so of course we're throwing an absolute ripper to celebrate! Prepare yourselves, West Country madness is coming to London as Dean Lane Hardcore Fun Night takes over House of Vans on Friday November 15th! 

    Here's what's going down:  

    Pizza TrampGoatorcycleThe Broken Bones Gentlemen's Club and Los Savages are tearing up Tunnel 2 with a night of old school punk.  

    We're screening the London premiere of 'Nothing Meaner' - an independent documentary showcasing the history of Dean Lane skate park; a true love letter to the Deaner!  

    20 Fucking Beers Artshow are ruling things in the Gallery with a 20 years history of DLH Funday flyers, posters, photo galleries, decks, tees and stuff they didn't burn! Plus our mates at Lovenskate will be printing a special one off House of Vans DLH t-shirt!  

    Our usual Cash For Tricks is getting ramped up a notch with MC Joe Habgood bringing fun, grunt and devastation to the House of Vans bowl and park.  

    As always, it's all free, get ready for some real Deaner chaos!  

    For everyone who doesn't know, here's the history behind Dean Lane Hardcore:  

    Around 1999, Bedminster skate park had a major face-lift, some would say for the worse but it had a great effect on the scene. It got people back into the park and was another central spot for people to meet. This is where Dylan, Ross, Andy and various others created the DLH (Dean Lane Hardcore) crew, who were more into park skating and more into punk. This made the Bristol scene more varied and interesting. The Deaner has been DIY expanded with loving hands and concrete by the locals many times - wall rides a plenty! The best thing about the Deaner is the atmosphere, the DLH crew and of course the DLH Funday. Now celebrating twenty years of skating, drinking, burning stuff, punk rock, talking shit and breaking things. 

    Nothing meaner than the Deaner!

    Watch Harry Seward's excellent edit from Fifty Fifty's Go Skate Day at the Deaner.

    House of Vans London is delighted to host the European premiere of Arms Wide Open, the first all-female skate film from Vans featuring Helena LongAmy Ram, Shani Bru, Lucy Adams, Una Farrar, Breana Geering and Fabiana Delfino. The film documents their trip around Indonesia as they skate the country’s most exotic spots.

    The film was filmed and edited by Sirus Grahan. Sirus’ unique style perfectly captures the Vans crew’s adventure, hitting Bali and Jakarta’s skateboarding spots, as well as making the most of Bali’s lifestyle. 

    In addition, an accompanying photo exhibition from the film will fill the House of Vans gallery space in Tunnel 1 featuring photography by Sara Parson Texas and Norma Ibarra who followed the girls on their journey through Indonesia.

    The evening festivities continue with a girls only Skate Session, before the night closes out to DJs and karaoke.

  • Sam Beckett Pro Recap + Protec Welcome Clip with Rune Glifberg

    Couple of edits featuring Sam Beckett here, the first one being his surprise pro board session featuring Julien Benoliel, Sox, Jono Coote, Alex Hallford and Sam Beckett himself. Alex Hallford's lines in particular are great.

    Then we have Sam and Rune Glifberg's Welcome to Protec edit, shot in Copenhagen and Malmo. Watching Rune skate the oververt wall at Fælledparken is insane. Backside Ollie out the top?!

    Here's a photo of Rune I shot at CPH Pro back in 2012.
