We’re running another sweepstakes off of the Powell-Peralta site. It’s for the Cab Red Hot Rod deck. We’re asking people to answer our two questions about CAB and send their answers in to us through email. The last day for the sweepstakes is October 22nd and we will announce the winner on October 23rd. We’re gonna go through the emails and find the people who send in the correct answers and randomly choose one of them to receive the deck. Here’s the link for more details- http://bit.ly/WjbQoH
PEDRO BARROS DEFENDS PRO TITLE AND
STEVE CABALLERO WINS SECOND MASTERS CROWN AT THE 2012 PRO-TEC POOL PARTY
Pedro – Mile High Stalefish
Steve Caballero – Kickflip Indy
Vans Skatepark, Orange, CA (May 12, 2012) – Seventeen-year-old Brazilian Pedro Barros defended his first Pro-tec Pool Party Pro crown to win $28,000 at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, California Saturday night as he again fought off Rune Glifberg in second place and Bucky Lasek who returned to the Pro-tec podium after missing last year with a broken wrist.
The Masters division took on the look of a Bones Brigade reunion as Steve Caballero returned from recent injury to claim first place and $14,000 ahead of fellow Brigade alums Tony Hawk, the runner-up, Lance Mountain in third and Mike McGill in fourth. It was the first time that those four had competed in the same contest since the early ’90s and Stacy Peralta and George Powell were on hand for the occasion. Cab, who six weeks ago broke his collar bone in a motorbike mishap, was not expecting to compete until being cleared to begin rehab just a week ago. He also won in 2010 and is the only Masters competitor to unseat 6-time winner Chris Miller, who placed 9th this year. The night was capped off with Hawk receiving a huge cake in honor of his 44th birthday today.
