Those unfamiliar with Steve “Cab” Caballero and Christian Hosoi are likely strangers to the world of skateboarding. Involved in the scene since their teens, both Caballero and Hosoi have had tricks coined after them — “Caballerial” and “Christ Air,” respectively — and are mainstays in the Vans stable of athletes. The pair first met in 1979 and with a shared love of fun, positive-thinking and pushing boundaries, eventually built a friendship along with their legendary reputations. We were recently presented with the opportunity to sit down with both Caballero and Hosoi at the recent Vans Warped Tour at London’s Alexandra Palace to discuss their love of skateboarding, shared beliefs, Vans Half Cabs and signature products.
