Vans Philippines Go Skateboarding Day Celebration 2017


Being one of the forerunners of the Go Skateboarding Day tradition in Manila, the Vans Go Skateboarding day extends its celebration last June 24, 2017 at Metrotent Convention Center in Pasig City and gave tons of epic moments to all skaters who participated in this annual celebration.

This celebration is entirely dedicated to the skate communities in the Philippines. Vans has provided an awesome indoor venue for the skate competitions and  overwhelming cash prizes and giveaways for the participants of this year’s GSD celebration.

Here are some snaps of this annual event!
