Slam City Skates x Vans 'Summer In The City' At The House Of Vans In London

Slam City Skates teamed up with Vans to hold 'Summer in The City' competition for London based and visiting teams. Existing or new teams could have been formed to film a 3-minute video clip in August all around London. Rules were simple - 1 filmer with any recording device and up to 6 riders, that was it.

To screen all the submissions House of Vans kindly provided its cinema theatre as part of their 'Skate Fry-Days' monthly event. Beer, fried chicken, cash for tricks and lots of quality clips were on offer. Cinema was packed with no free seats available. Crowd was loud and cheerful. With all the clips screened winners were announced - 1st place Austin Bristow, 2nd place Vincent Kelsey & 3rd place Shane Smith with their respective crews.
