Vans Park Series: Huntington Beach Junior's Photos
The 4th stop of the Vans Park Series not only added a women’s event but also a junior men’s event. Skaters ages 8-15 from the USA and Australia were signed up too see how they stack up against their peers. And if how these kids navigated the course is any indication of what's to come, the future of bowl riding is looking pretty damn impressive. —Joe Hammeke

Young gun Roman Pabich broke his wrist during practice the night before. These other kids might look concerned but deep inside they are stoked because they all just moved up an notch
