It’s their 50th year in business and Vans are killing in the boot game right now. What’s more, they just added German shredder Benny Urban to their pro team roster.
Vans are very happy to announce the addition of BENNY URBAN to the Vans Snow Family. Originally from Hamburg and now based in Munich, Germany, Benny is one of the most accomplished and respected street riders in Europe. At the age of 24, he’s already racked up a bunch of memorable video parts, and is now involved in the American video production crew Videograss. Benny’s riding speaks for itself; his eye for spots, natural flow and undeniable style sets him apart.
“Benny’s the absolute embodiment of the Vans vision of modern snowboarding. His snowboarding, his style and his attitude are on point. Joining a team including Arthur Longo, Nils Arvidsson, Will Smith, Wolle Nyvelt, Sami Luhtanen, Markus Keller, to name but a few, Vans European Snow Team is in a stronger place than ever, and a force to be reckoned with!” Bruno Rivoire, Vans Snow Team Manager
Benny adds ”I’m very grateful for becoming a part of this amazing brand, stacked with a heavy team of unique and diverse riders from all over the globe. Riding for Vans was always been a kind of dream and especially at this point of my snowboarding life, I think it’s a great family to be welcomed in to.”
