There’s a wide array of characters that attend the Vans US Open of Surfing. Why? Well, for one, it’s far and away the biggest melting pot of action sports culture on the West Coast. And two, well, you get to go to cool events like this party that Vans threw celebrating Dane Reynolds’ new signature footwear collection, as well as his new movie Boiler Boys (featuring Yadin Nicol and Dillon Perillo in Morocco). On the surface, these photos may look like your run of the mill party, but in reality it was one of the most interestingly eclectic groups of industry influencers we’ve seen to date - everyone from Dane himself, to professional skateboarders like Dustin Dollin, to just about every pro surfer you could think of, all gathered around to enjoy, support, and have a good time. Don’t it sound harmonious? Well, it sure felt that way. Have a scroll through the above photos, and watch Boiler Boys below.
