This past April as we prepared for the 9th Annual Vans Pool Party we were able to meet at Lance Mountain’s home in LA to shoot a video with the legend himself Christian Hosoi. While we visited and shot the video we got the chance to sit down with Christian and film the first in a series of a Tribute to the 40 years of Pro-Tec as a brand.
Shot in the late 70′s early 80′s, Christian has always had proper style!
Pro-Tec is blessed and honored to have legends like Christian and Steve Cab, future legends such Pedro Barros and Bucky Lasek, and upstarts like Josh Borden, Alex Perelson,
and Zach Miller as part of the Pro-Tec team and family!
Classic Layback Grind!
Christian a true family man brought along his sons Classic and Endless to enjoy a day of skating and fun!
Future ripper Endless gets his helmet strapped on as to not miss the action!
Getting a little help from Dad, Endless can handle the deep end!
We would like to give a special things to all those that supported this video and Christian through out the years.
