While he grew up and continues to reside in Calgary, not California, Riley Boland is truly the embodiment of Vans skateboarding. While he officially joined the Vans Family in 2004, it's hard to picture even a young Riley in anything but Slip-ons, still his favourite model today. Riley's fascination for how things work has had a massive impact on his skating, often leading him to figure out lines and transfers that most skaters would never have even considered.
