OASEN is Swedish for OASIS ; a pleasant area in the midst of a difficult place or hectic situation. A refuge. In this uncertain time, and in life in general, everyone is constantly searching for their Oasis. Snowboarding defines that escapism. Vans’ Europe Snowboarding team’s latest film, Oasen, is made with the intention of inspiring others to go out and find their own Oasen, wherever that may be.
Filmed in Austria, Switzerland and Sweden, and driven by one of our most inspiring riders; Benny Urban, Oasen follows a tight crew of good friends on their quest to push the boundaries of street riding through creativity and good times. Opening up the city through a fresh creative outlook, with a heavy influence from a deep love of skateboarding.
