You couldn’t have asked for better conditions or reception for July’s Vans Duct Tape Invitational Spain, there was sun, there were waves, and there were thousands of spectators to watch some of the best traditional longboarding the surf community has to offer.  Just a few highlight pics courtesy of Vans.  Big thanks to Joel Tudor & the Vans crew for putting on such a great event!
