The 3x3x3 Vans project – bastard and Mattia Turco

Mattia Turco resident artist 3x3x3

If you’ve ever had the chance to visit the bastard store and climb up upstairs, where we run our offices, you’ve probably met Mattia Turco and checked out his studio with his latest works.

With the 3x3x3 project by Vans – a skate deck series of 3, designed by 3 skaters in collaboration with their 3 supporting skateshops – we’ve worked on a skate deck and on a special t-shirt to represent the synthesis of the expressive research of Mattia today. Read the rest of this entry »

Every time that Steve Van Doren stops by the bastard store, it’s a blast! On Sunday, February the 25th he arrived right for lunch with some long time friends.

As a digestive we skipped the ammazzacaffè and went straight to the bastard store for a lit session that we’ll never forget. Click on Chiole’s illustration for the raw footage put together by SHARE Skateboarding Mag.

What’s up with GZat?

by jep 28 May 2018

If you were wondering like me… here we have some answers: while Tony Hawk was stopping with some friends in Milan for a memorable session with us, Giorgio was going to his ramp to refresh some tricks. Switch mctwist.

He just sent in this clip and informed us that he will spend some more time in California and this coming weekend he will skate at a demo organized by Vans for the Metallica’s Orion Fest in Detroit. If you are around you know what’s the plan for the weekend!

GZat goes to the Vans Pool Party

by jep 28 May 2018

Giorgio Zattoni has been in California for a few days already aiming to the  Vans Pool Party which will be in May (yes, he traveled in advance!). He just pointed us to his brand new videopart published on the Powell Peralta website.

Check out the video above filmed at the awesome Big Air bowl of Camerano (AN, Italy) and at the Marianna Hardcore. Gnarly!

P.S. You may not be aware of the crazy requirements necessary to enter the biggest pool contest in the world: Giorgio got in by receiving a ***wildcard*** from Mr. Van Doren himself!

Skate Legends @ bastard store

by giuli 28 May 2018

Christian Hosoi, Tony Alva, Steve Caballero and Giorgio Zattoni. It’s not the X-Games legends roaster: these are simply the riders that participated to the most unbelievable session ever at the bastard bowl.

Hosoi, who’s always been the king of style , shows us he’s still in an incredible shape. He’s almost too good to be true. He rides as if time has frozen. Pure legend.
