Vans Pool Party 2013

Vans Pool Party was flyin high - Cory Juneau

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.

Basic Bowl BBQ ’03

big props to dennis lamb, the owner of the basic bowl, as this event is a testimony of fearless dedication to the art of pool skating and party throwing. imagine a couple hundred, heavily loaded and amply wrecked skateboard enthusiasts crammed into your backyard, house, front yard (why is backyard one word and front yard is two??) and street. your shit and your house, all exposed to a load of people who have a ‘fuck all’ attitude. if you’ve ever done it then you know. truth be told, the whole time we were there everyone seemed very respectful to the premises.
