There are still spots available for #StokeORama in Manasquan, NJ! Kids 12 and under can sign up by visiting @BraveSurf and @Inlet_Outlet tomorrow, or come down to the beach early Saturday morning. All contestants will receive a free goodie bag and a full day of fun with @Danedamus, @TannerGud, and the @PositiveVibeWarriors. 📷 @RyanMackPhoto
While we can’t recommend driving with your foot on the dash, we highly suggest driving to your local surf shop for a pair of @KnostThankYou’s Style 36 Decon SFs. Also available at vans.com/surf
So comfy it’s like a second home. Any time @Nathan_Florence heads to Tahiti, he picks up right where he left off. 📷 @DMosqPhoto
Off The Wall and into the water. The @Vans Voyage Trunk was built to wear from the streets to the lineup. Try it in Argan Oil by stopping by your local surf shop or vans.com/surf
From the mind of @KnostThankYou comes the Style 36 Decon SF and Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF, all dressed up in vegan patent leather. Available now in select surf shops and vans.com/surf
Two feet, glassy, and more importantly: no one out. @KarinaRozunko’s latest surf trip to Indonesia was a good one. 📷 @_Lucrecia_
Summertime showers on the North Shore means @Nathan_Florence is heading out for a solo session. 📷 @_DanielRusso_
Get ready to rip! #StokeORama is heading back to Manasquan, New Jersey on August 17! We have 60 sign-up spots available through the link in our story. The remaining 60 spots will be split up between each of the following shops: @HeritageSurf (Ocean City), @FariasSurfSport (Ship Bottom), and @BraveSurf (Point Pleasant). 📷 @RyanMackPhoto
Couldn’t wipe the smiles off these faces. Looking back on maybe the best #VANSUSOPEN yet. 📷 @Jimmicane
It’s the last day of #VANSUSOPEN and we have gifts for people who demo the #VansDuctTape Festival boards. Stop by “The Duct Tape Experimental Board Experience and Ocean Awareness Center” and give one a rip. If you can’t make it down, the boards will live at @JacksSurfboards, and be available to ride into the future. 📷 @Jimmicane
It’s Finals Day for the #VansDuctTape Invitational and #VANSUSOPEN Pro Junior! Tune into the live webcast anytime throughout the day at vansusopenofsurfing.com 📷 @Jimmicane
The TomaHawk never backs down. After logging a non-priority interference to begin his Round 5 match up, @TomasHermes clawed back and snatched the lead until literally the final second of the heat. Still, equal 9th and 3700 points will heavily bump up his @WSL QS ranking. #VANSUSOPEN 📷 @Jimmicane
Stop by “The Duct Tape Experimental Board Experience and Ocean Awareness Center” by Chris Johanson and Ajax Oakford (aka: TDTEBEAOAC) to ride any of the hand-shaped boards by @Sealtooth, @LeilaHurst, @ToshTudor, and Austin Kanfoush. It’s free! Say that 5x fast while you’re there and maybe you’ll even score some free @Vans swag! #VANSUSOPEN 📷 @Jimmicane
Off The Wall and into the water. Our Voyage Trunk helps you pack light, combining functional benefits with an old school boardshort look. Grab them in Argan Oil at your local shop or vans.com/surf

Who is Austin Kanfoush? “I’m from a rural area outside of Pittsburgh called Beaver County, currently living in San Francisco with my wife and son. I’m a professional skateboarder and a foreman for a construction company, specializing in residential carpentry and concrete work.” Austin is also our fourth and final shaper for the #VansDuctTape Festival, going down all week during #VANSUSOPEN. Come down to HB and take his designs for a test drive. More in our story. @VansSkate
As he shaped his first couple surfboards, @ToshTudor recalled his favorite #VANSUSOPEN memory: when Andy Nieblas launched his log into the HB Pier as a sacrifice. Next week, Tosh and every surf fan who comes down to Huntington Beach, has an opportunity to create their own memories by locating "The Duct Tape Experimental Board Experience and Ocean Awareness Center" and giving one of the eight #VansDuctTape Festival boards a test drive.
“I didn’t even know what shaping was until like a year ago. Literally, I put my blinders on and just ordered surfboards. Now I’m like, ‘Oh, sorry. Can I order some boards?’ But before then, I’d be like ‘Three boards, five boards – get it done, one week!’” Come ride @LeilaHurst’s hand-crafted shapes at the #VansDuctTape Festival. Available all week during #VANSUSOPEN.
The more bizarre and trippy, the better! Look for "The Duct Tape Experimental Board Experience and Ocean Awareness Center by Chris Johanson and Ajax Oakford" all week at #VANSUSOPEN to try @Sealtooth’s latest #VansDuctTape Festival creations. For a full breakdown from Dane, hit our story.
With the #VansDuctTape Huntington Beach right around the corner, we strolled down memory lane through @YusukeHayashi_’s off-moments captured in Portugal. Over the course of a week, there wasn’t a minute when Yusuke’s camera left his side. Always a recipe for landing some candid gold.
For the seemingly few without an electric bike: waking is still an option! @KyussKing, happy to hit the Lowers trail in our UltraCush Sea Esta sandals, with PU memory foam and anatomical arch support. Grab them at vans.com/surf
Sure, Hawaii has seasons. You can typically tell them apart by which side of the island you’re getting barreled on. @WyattMcHale, enjoying summer. 📷 @_DanielRusso_
Built for comfort and durability, the @Vans Destruct SF features a reverse lug rubber outsole and the new UltraCush Lite drop-in for all day support. Out now at vans.com/surf and your local surf shop.
@TomLoweYo is currently in Puerto Escondido with a batch of gigantic surfboards. Translation: things are about to get scary.
It’s five o’clock somewhere. Happy hour with @KarinaRozunko in her Navy/White Old Skools. 📷 @_Lucrecia_
