Pro-tec Pool Party Rocked!

If you didn't watch the live webcast on of the Pro-tec Pool party at the Vans Combi pool yesterday, you missed some serious pool skating!  The Vans Combi pool was re-surfaced at a cost of $50,000.00 to make it smoother, faster and better.  The skaters have been talking about how much better the Combi is all month long leading up to the competition, and it showed in their skating.  The faster surface lead to higher airs, smoother coping lead to longer slides and grinds, and a few of the reshaped areas lead to never-before-seen lines. Take a look at the Masters Final:

The results of the Master Division were Steve Caballero in first, Chris Miller in second, and Lance Mountain in third. These skaters have skated all 3 versions of the Combi pool, and the results could have been from the eighties. It is hard to believe they are still skating at this level!

Now for the current pros, have a look at their final:

The results of this round were Bucky Lasek in first, Rune Glifberg in second, and Omar Hassan in third. Bucky has now won two Pool Parties in a row, and some think it is due to him having a concrete bowl in his backyard. Rune and Omar are both known for their pool skating, and showed the crowd why. Honorable mentions go to Nolan Munroe and Alex Perelson who impressed me more than the official results suggest. To watch all the awesome video from the Pro-tec Pool party, click here.
