The Rumble In Ramona went down October 17-18, 2008. Where the fuck is Ramona you ask? I'm claiming it's the Turlock of San Diego—about an hour east in the cuts. Basically the idea was to build a vert ramp, have a big session, drink lots of beer, and have a good time with the end result being Darren and his homies would get a free vert ramp. Well shit worked out and trophies were awarded. Whether or not it made history, we'll let you decide...

5/07/2018The Legends, Masters and Pros all descended upon the Combi Bowl for the 2018 Vans Pool Party, which coincided with Cinco de Mayo. The holiday vibe was definitely infectious and everybody got sick as F! How do these things just keep getting gnarlier?!
5/07/2018This year’s Pool Party was even more festive than usual as it fell on Cinco De Mayo, and the opening ceremony was kicked off with a traditional mariachi band cranking out tunes next to the bowl.
