Vans Pool Party 2013 Photo-Recap00

Vans Pool Party 2013 Photo-Recap

Lo scorso weekend il Vans Skatepark di Orange, California, ha ospitato l’edizione 2013 di uno dei contest più amati dell’anno, il Pool Party (ex Pro-Tec) e mentre aspettiamo il video ufficiale abbiamo messe insieme una gallery di foto scattate ieri durante le finali. Come sempre, il contest era diviso nelle due macro categorie “Masters” e “Pros” ma quest’anno non stati i soliti Caballero e Barros a salire sul gradino più alto del podio bensì Chris Miller e Bucky Lasek, riportando lo stato dell’arte alla situazione di qualche anno fa. Peccato per il buon Giorgio Zattoni, solo decimo in questo attesissimo ritorno sotto i riflettori. Date un’occhiata alle immagini gentilmente offerte dal team di Skateboarder Magazine, per ulteriori immagini ed informazioni vi rimandiamo al sito dedicato.

Vans Skatepark, Orange, CA (May 11, 2013) – Bucky Lasek makes a defiant comeback as the winner of the 2013 Vans Pool Party unseating defending champion Pedro Barros for his third Pro title since 2010. Bucky claimed $28,000 with former winners Pedro Barros and Rune Glifberg placing second and third after a heated Pro final featuring impressive runs by young guns Cory Juneau, Tom Scharr and Austin Poynter.

The Masters final had its own exciting head to head battle as six-time Masters winner Chris Miller took the crown from defending champion Steve Caballero. Miller’s historical five-year winning streak was previously defeated by Cab in 2010. Still a crowd favorite, Cab came in a close second with Christian Hosoi placing third. The night ended with an inspiring change of guard, as old victors regained the throne making next year’s Pool Party truly unpredictable.
