Tricks weren’t just for kids at the Van Doren Invitational skateboard competition on Saturday, July 11, 2015.

Dozens of skate fans and spectators gathered Saturday at Hastings Skatepark to witness the invite-only competition. Featured riders included Vans’ Curren Caples and Chris Russell, 2014 Vans Pool Party winner Tristan Rennie and reigning 2014 Van Doren Invitational Canada champion Alex Sorgente.

This year’s edition of the skate park jam transformed Hastings Park into a public art installation, with design direction provided by graffiti artists Virus and Ben Tour, supported by local talent.
