    It’s impossible to encapsulate the ripping all in one edit, so we made another! The Combi is a massive pit, take nothing for granted.

    The Combi Pool Party never disappoints, and the action this year was heavier than ever. In the end, Pedro Barros went ballistic and blew it out for first place. Thanks again for the good times, Vans.
