Bonding over our common love for skating, art, fashion and cool, weird shit, VICE and Vans partnered to launch Unbound—a new series that enables emerging Canadian creatives to work on what they love.

Original. Provocative. Handy. Professional Fingerboarder Chad Montie was so many things to his fans, but the one thing everyone in the industry agrees on is that fingerboarding hasn’t been the same since he disappeared. Fingers Crossed: The Chad Montie Story traces the rise, the glory and the mysterious disappearance of the one who could do more with his fingers than most could with their whole mind.

Here are a few photos from last night World Premiere at Toronto’s City Pool.
