Vans Pool Party 2016: Photos


The 12th Annual Vans Pool Party is a wrap and it was an insane day of great skateboarding! When the dust settled, Darren Navarrette took first in the Masters, Lance Mountain won the Legends division and Pedro Barros put on a show and took top ranking in the Pro contest. Thanks to Vans for another amazing Pool Party. See you next year! —Rhino
