Vans Surf is debuting some fresh gear for the summer, in the form of the Rata Mid Surf Sider. This spin on the Rata Vulc Surf Sider goes mid-top, and offers a Tanner Gudauskas X Captain Fin Co. colorway, a collab created by Gudauskas, a Vans Surf team rider, and Captain Fin founder Mitch Abshere.

To celebrate Abshere and Gudauskas’ new shoe, the Vans by Thalia Surf Shop in Laguna Beach, California, is hosting a shin-dig August 2, 2012. The party will not only act as a launch for the Rata Mid Surf Sider, but will feature artwork by Tanner Gudauskas, a Captain Fin & Co. movie trailer, and musical entertainment by Dirt Dress. Don’t miss out!
