Vans “Off The Wall” Spring Classic
May 9th – 11th
The Vans “Off The Wall” Spring Classic has established itself as something of a hot date in the Italian calendar, and an event that is not to be missed for the European skateboarding scene. Located right on the coast and offering an awesome fusion of sun, sand, sea and inspired mini ramp riding, the event successfully mixes Californian spirit with Italian flair.
Over the past five years, this combination has created what has undoubtedly become one of the most laid back and enjoyable events in skateboarding, and the perfect opener to the contest season. For five years, the little Ligurian town of Varazze has been a fantastic host to the Vans “Off The Wall” Spring Classic, but for 2014, we’re mixing it up a little…and heading south. As we bid ‘arrivederci’ to Varazze, we say ‘salve’ to Napoli! Grab your board and pack your sunblock, as it’s going to be one hell of a weekend.
With all the elements that the event has become famous, now set in the historic the city of Naples, we find ourselves back by the beach and ready to roll. Expect a bigger, better mini ramp, offering more potential and more fun, the Vans’ Market Place with food stalls, barber shop and more, and on the Saturday evening, we’ll have a stellar music line up for you.
Attracting riders from all over Europe, as well as special guests from further afield, the standard of riding at the Vans “Off The Wall” Spring Classic has continued to rise. 2013’s edition really saw the bar being raised, with some insane tricks going down, so with an improved ramp for this year, we can only expect to see it elevated once again. Be sure to join us for a weekend packed full of skateboarding, music and a little sun and sea!
