Tony Alva could have been the George Best of skateboarding. Super talented, influential and crazy. He touched his bottom 4 years ago battling drug addiction and alcoholism. Now he is fighting for sobriety, he is coming back to his life. And it’s great to see a brand like Vans supporting him in this journey. This short movie directed and edited by Eliot Rausch is an unusual example of brave storytelling by a brand standing by his testimonial even if he is a bad guy on the road to redemption.
