Vans premiered the long-awaited documentary The Tony Alva Story tonight on their YouTube channel, with a live Q&A hosted by Christian Hosoi. Alva, the prototypical bad boy skater, has been an influential figure for decades and this film totally does the 63-year-old legend justice. (Consider this movie ‘Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Tony Alva *But Were Afraid To Ask.’) Watch the full-length doc, with Hosoi’s intro and post-presentation Q&A, above.
The Tony Alva Story stars Alva, Jeff Grosso, Wynn Miller, Steve Olson, Shepard Fairy, Gus Van Sant, Josh Brolin, Jeff Ament, Glen E Friedman, Robert Trujillo, Brad Bowman, Pete Zehnder, Jeff Ho, Stacey Peralta, Elijah Berle, and more.
In 2015 we produced the Vans documentary to end all Vans documentaries with our 5-part EST series. Watch it below and then shop our selection of Vans in The Canteen!
