Vans Skatepark hosted another skateboarding blow out in the Combi pool last weekend. This time it was the amateurs who tried to rip off the coping, plaster, and tiles with high speed, hard grinding, heavy tail smacking, wheels screeching, mind melting insanity! I’m surprised the grout didn’t jar loose and more tiles didn’t fall out from the abuse they took on this Saturday.
The Vans Pool Party of 2013 was another installment of the most electrifying skateboarding ever witnessed. The intensity and mayhem may not have been believable in the days of yor, but in the modern world where it can be broadcast to your living room via the world wide web, many thousands around the globe would agree with the skaters, media, and frothing fans in attendance that this event is better then all the rest. The Prelims were pretty hectic. Lots of take downs, broken and bruised masters crawling out of the bowl. Blood cleanup in the square was required. There was no mercy for the Masters as all riders had to make it through the Prelims to get to the finals. This may not be the case next year, but we’ll discuss that some other time. The electric vibe for the masters is quite fun. Peter Hewitt and Jeff Grosso lit up the crowd! The top 10 gnarly and consistent Masters made it to another round of torturous fun.Read more
First off, I gotta say I had a great time! By the looks of it everybody else did too so I am stoked! Heidi and the rest of us are all very grateful for everyone’s volunteer help and support, the sponsors for their prize donations and support, the venues like Vans, and all the skaters that have been coming out to participate in all the events. It’s all interdependent on each other and its all been really good times and memories we will all share.
