Vans Canada marketing manager Alex Auchu believes that skateboarding can be paramount to maintaining good mental and physical health.

“We want to give all Montrealers the opportunity to dig into skateboard culture, whether they’re already part of the Montreal skate community, are interested in trying skateboarding for the first time, or simply want to watch,” explained Auchu.
