"EVERYONE CAN BE DOING
THE
SAME THING BUT WE'RE ALL
DOING OUR OWN THING."
- LIZZIE ARMANTO

For the Vanguards, it’s simple: Style matters. To that end, Vans team riders, Brighton Zeuner, Lizzie Armanto, Yndiara Asp and newcomer, Mami Tezuka, are putting their signatures on a new movement in skate culture ? where individuality, creativity, and self-expression win.

Heavily influenced by their hometown parks, local environments, and travels, we recently spent some time catching up with these four originals to hear what “style” means to them.
