Vans Downtown Showdown 2011

Saturday 20th August 2011 was the date that held the biggest skate event that the UK has ever seen and it landed in the capital. Old Spitalfields Market in East London was the venue for some of the best skaters in Europe along with over 10,000 spectators and it did not disappoint.

To create the course Vans selected obstacles from Cliché, Superdead and Death Skateboards in recognition of their creative designs, and they were a treat for the skaters as these obstacles were there for one day only!

This is normally the moment where I wax lyrical about who did what and what won whoever something but not this time. The video is so damn good that it can speak for itself and you'll get much more excited by watching it then reading it! Look out for the moves from Danny Brady over Cliché's Tower Bridge obstacle and Chris Pfanner with his trademark F/S melon flip.
