Vans presents Modern Skate & Surf 40th Anniversary Bash Staff Pick

When: Sat., Aug. 24, 2 p.m. 2019
Price: $10-$25
Long before millennials developed carpal tunnel over hours of Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Royal Oak’s Modern Skate & Surf was serving up wheels, deals, and all the equipment to shred cement or waves. Founded in 1979 by George Leichtweis, Modern Skate is turning the big 4-0 and they’re doing it with some support from skate shoe giants Vans and some A-list talent. To celebrate Modern Skate has invited skaters Christian “Christ” Hosoi, Bucky Lasek, Bill Danforth, Tony Magnussen, Ron Allen, and eight-time World Cup skateboarding competition winner Andy MacDonald to shred the shop’s 1-acre of ramps and rails. Also on deck is Vans CEO, and son of Vans founders, Steve Van Doren, who will also help usher in a new decade of Modern Skate & Surf, along with bands the Hentchmen, Werewolf Jones, and the Cheetahs, among others.
