On Saturday March the 2nd 2019, Steve Van Doren and the Vans family visited stopped by the bastard store in Milano…
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.

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!
Daniel Cuervo, Steve Caballero, Giorgio Zattoni, Eddie Elguera, Jocke Olsson e Joshua Rodriguez are the official Z-Team. JIMMY’Z wants to make it right!
GZatt is so inspired by the Combi lines… we got this from the pen drawing below that we found on some shipping documents in the warehouse!
It’s going to be fun this Saturday, May 11th at the Vans Pool Party in the Combi. If you are not in Orange you can follow the event on the live web streaming.
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!
