Vans might be super-cool, but they won’t be beaten by a little bad weather.

Vans is a skater and BMX-loving brand so its no wonder that it won’t be put off by a little bad weather. In fact, where the parks are clear of snow and ice, skaters are out no matter how cold it gets.

Vans for the Cool Climate

The weather may have been extreme over the past few weeks, but extreme is just how skaters and bikers like things. Some weather can spoil skateboarding, especially in outdoor parks, where wet runs make the skating slower and problems like leaves and debris blowing about in the wind can cause falls. Keeping safe is important, but only just, and the Vans-wearing skater fans like to come out in all weathers. Remedies to help people enjoy extreme sports in all weathers include:

  • Indoor parks – this is the most sensible options, although because indoor facilities have to be large and high-ceilinged by their nature, they’re often very cold indeed. Skaters wrap up, wearing layers, hoodies, beanie hats and skinny jeans to keep warm, but maintain the flexibility they need. Needless to say, a good pair of good-looking, grippy Vans is also an essential part of the cold-weather look.
  • Tools of the trade – making sure your board or bike is in good condition will help you to skate in the colder or wetter weather. Keep your wheels free-moving and change them if necessary so that you get the smooth ride you’re looking for.
  • General maintenance – skating internet clips show skaters brushing water, sand, leaves and other things off the parks before they can skate. If you’ve made the effort to come out for a session and the park’s not skateable, it’s worth taking the time to brush or dry it down to see if you can get some practice in before you head elsewhere.

However you’re thinking of combating the winter weather, make sure you’ve got a good pair of Vans on your feet, helping to keep you warm and comfortable.
