Vans has been trying to live up to its billing as the original action sports brand with Off the Wall, the company’s own television channel. Off the Wall isn’t literally a television channel, though – it works like one, but is exclusively online. The Vans Off the Wall App for the iPad is a gateway to that channel, allowing users to subscribe to certain shows, receive notifications of new episodes, and share their experiences with friends.
The channel features appropriately extreme programming, like extreme sports competitions, but there are some cool extras to check out, as well. There are some behind-the-scenes looks at many prominent extreme athletes, a documentary series chronicling illegal graffiti artists, and a comedy sketch show that takes jabs at the hipster culture. There’s probably some irony there.
The Off the Wall app is free of charge, and is available now off the iTunes App Store.
