Vans US Open Kick Off Show And VIP Premiere

Vans hosted the official US Open Kick Off Show and an exclusive VIP Premiere of Get-N Classic Vol. 3 at the Port Theatre in Corona Del Mar last night.

Vans top athletes including Nathan Fletcher, Dane Reynolds, Geoff Rowley, Joel Tudor, and The Gudauskas Bros were on hand to be interviewed for the show and see their new surf movie shown to a live audience for the first time.

Vans’ marketing plan around the the kick off show includes making a highlight reel  live on the US OPEN website late tonight through Sunday. It will also run on all media partner’s pages. On Monday, the full 45 minute show will be up on the US OPEN website.

The Vans US Open officially begins this Saturday, July 26th, and will be headlined by a world -class field of top competitive surfers. The presence of skateboarding and BMX have continued to grow stronger based on the success of last year’s Van Doren Invitational.

Industry guests were also treated to a premiere of Vans’ new surf movie Get-n Classic Vol. 3., which will be streamed to the world for free on Sept. 3, 2014. The movie is really solid, and features everything from Nathan Fletcher’s near death experience in Chile, to the kind of fun, rippable, seemingly-endless, breaking-almost-right-on-shore waves that are the envy of all surfers in the industry.

There will be plenty of Vans US Open coverage here at Transworld Business and on our sister pubs (Surfing, Surfer, Transworld Skateboarding, and Ride BMX) in the coming week.
