Vans Am Combi Contest 2011

It was an awesome day at the Combi pool yesterday as a good chunk of tomorrows top bowl riders battled it out at the Vans Skatepark in Orange CA. Youngsters from all over flew in to take part in the big bowl riding showdown and they delivered big time! Most of the comments I heard throughout the day were unanimous, it is ‘inspiring’ and ‘amazing’ and ‘…it makes me want to skate.’ Check out the video clips to get a decent taste of the action:
