Vans Site Hijack: Seb Smart
What floats the Kernish free radical's boat?
Seb Smart hails from Sennen, in England's deep SW, about as far left as you can in the Peoples' Republic of Kernow. When he's not blowin fins or time tunnelling, Seb also enjoys the thrill of the skateboard ride, as well as the challenge of Queensberry rules boxing duels.
Seb recently landed a Vans head to toe deal, making him an ideal candidate for the Vans Site Takeover.

Seb, let's talk classic surf vids... early froth for you, before 'clips' and 'edits' were a thing. What did you like before there was a like button?
The occumentary has got to be up there. Class
Totally different surfer but another amazing bio film, The Bruce Movie
Curren & occy at Bells, their heat from 1986. Serious.
Curren at J-Bay. Says it all.
What Vans products do you dig the most?
I like the Black n White old Skools. They'll always be epic.
What folk would you do interviews with, if you like, had to?
I'd like to interview Nathan Fletcher. Don't know that much about him and he seems like a bit of a dude. There's a photographer called Jason Reposar who I've met before. I like his style and he also has that wonder in his eye that indicates he's offended pretty hard in the past. Be cool to give him a little prod.
What Vans athletes have you looked up to?
I always liked Geoff Rowley. I was always hyped on the backside flip Rowley did over that river in Los Angeles. Him and Jay Adams, too.
