Vans Shoes’ Van Doren Invitational Practice Gallery

Take 30 of the best bowl riders on the planet, replicate one of the oldest and best bowls in the world (Marseille, France), and put it on the sand in Huntington Beach, California, during the US Open of Surfing…sounds like an amazing time, right? Well, that’s exactly what Vans has done and the prelims proved to be damn amazing. I ran around the course during the practice leading up and shot a few flicks of the likes of Brian Foster, Corey Bohan, Daniel Sandoval, Kevin Peraza, Andy Buckworth, and plenty more. Look for a prelims video here in a couple hours.

1. Chase Hawk
2. Dennis Enarson
3. Daniel Sandoval
4. Corey Bohan
