Celebrating a decade of vanssyndicate would not be complete without a proper tribute to NYC skateboarding icon, Andy Kessler. This Saturday, October 3rd @Vans releases the Sk8-Hi Reissue NYC “S” inspired by our friend, east coast skateboarding legend and original pioneers of New York skateboarding in the 1970s and 1980s. Kessler is remembered for his dedicated community work in building public skateparks, inspiring locals and skateboarders from all walks of life to be a part of the New York skate scene and not a day goes by that we don’t miss him.
