Steve Van Doren awarded by TransWorld SKATEboarding

Congrats Steve Van Doren

The History of Vans Off The Wall Since 1966
Steve Van Doren Transworld Memorial Award
TransWorld SKATEboarding has recently announced that this year's recipient of the Eric Stricker Memorial Award is Steve Van Doren. Steve will be honored with this award during the 15th Annual TransWorld SKATEboarding Awards Presented by New Era on February 27, 2013 in Hollywood, CA

Steve started working for Vans around the age of seven and has been working there ever since. As Vans' VP of Promotions and an unofficial Ambassador of Fun, Steve spends about 40 weeks a year on the road, including a grueling two-month non-stop stretch each summer with the 48-city Vans Warped Tour. Steve makes it his personal mission to talk to as many people as he can, often while flipping a burger off his omnipresent grill.

Steve's "constant motion" approach to life is evident, as he has put his entire heart and soul into Vans and the entire skate life culture. The Van Doren Rubber Company, now known as Vans, opened for business in Anaheim, California back in 1966. Steve was one of the young Van Dorens that spent his weekends helping out with the family business that is now, more than 40 years later, a hugely successful global action sports brand. Vans has done so much for skateboarding, including the recent ground breaking of their massive skatepark in Huntington Beach. It is an honor for TransWorld SKATEboarding to award Steve with the Eric Stricker Memorial Award, as a testament to all that he has done with Vans, and for the skateboarding community as a whole.
