Vans and Octopus made stuff.
But you knew that already of course.
As expected from two of our favourite brands, it’s a collaboration of the highest order. High end quality masquerading in stripped down minimalism. “Seamlessly blending style and performance” is the official line, but you get the gist.
And with a fresh clip showcasing team riders Harry Bryant, Dylan Graves & Mikey February cut to the ear bleeding sounds of Bolt Thrower by man of the hour, Matt Payne, it’s a gentle reminder to be grateful there are still legit brands that exist, keeping that raw authenticity in surf culture alive.
Anyway go have a gander and treat yourself to some decent merch via Wasted Talent Boutique.
And since you can only catch Covid at night apparently, we’ll be kicking things off a little earlier for our Vans x Octopus soirée tonight. Come kick it at Wasted Talent Studio from 16h – 19h.
