Ben Blundell, Brett Gifford & Tyler Warren
This past Sunday, skateboarders of Vancouver converged on the 200 block of Granville St for another edition of the VANS Roadblock — 4 teams, 4 obstacles, $4000. Coastal Riders, Underworld, BLVD and Antisocial teams plopped their obstacles down in the middle of the street and had at 'er. Although nobody was tossing coins in any hats, curious public spectators were treated to some fine displays of carcass tossing, heavy tricks and all-around hijinx, proving once again that skateboarding makes better entertainment than public busking of Collective Soul covers.
