In a galaxy not that far from Vans Headquarters, Directors Christian Jacobs and Jason DeVilliers work with costume masterminds Scott Johnson and Cleve Gunderman to create a fun mash up of the Star Wars and Vans universes. We give you an inside look at the making of the wookiee costume that legendary skateboarder Steve Caballero wears as he shreds through a late 70’s inspired skateboard contest. Additional ripping by Christian Hosoi, Jeff Grosso, Tony Alva and Peter Hewitt.

The entire line of Star Wars x Vans Classics are available now.


Our skate team met our surf team when the UNIV x Hosoi Hammerhead surfboard collaboration was shaped by Christian Hosoi and UNIV’s own James Addonizio in the UNIV Work Shop. The Hammerhead surfboard is a scaled-up five foot five inch replica of Christian’s famous skateboard design from the 1980s til today. Skate meets surf. Test piloted by Benji Weatherley and Dylan Graves in fun California springtime conditions. A few sizes of Hammerhead surfboards on the way from UNIV and Hosoi very soon.
