- on April 21, 2015April has come! It means VLT!! Time for island vibes and 2 weeks full of shakas greetings everywhere! VLT is a 2 weeks+ long skateboard event and the biggest longboard event in Asia for sure. It all happens in the Visayas area in the Philippines and is divided into 3 main parts. VLT (Visayan Longboard Trilogy) includes traveling, skating, camping, hammocks, ferries, parties, mangos and coconuts, beautiful beaches, waterfalls, hopping from island to island with hundreds of skaters from all around the world. It all started some 6 years ago by a group of local skaters of Cebu in order to find new spots to skate while traveling and discovering the beauty of the nature which those islands have to offer.

Some big names and legends of the scene showed up, giving a special stoke to the locals.
