Vans threw a contest at the Chelsea Piers Bowl and a heavy crew from around the world showed up to rip. The rain held off, Van Doren manned the grill with free hot dogs all day and when the dust settled Lance Mountain took top honors in the masters division and Pedro Barros won the Pro.
A full on Bones Brigade reunion set off the Masters division and Steve Caballero didn't care whether it was the Birdman's birthday or not as he ripped his way to another first place finish.
The big guns came in smoking up on the hill at Pedro's compound. Peters, Hosoi, Grosso, and Glifberg were all there. When the dust settled, Pedro and Hosoi's team took the top honors, and the Brazilian barbecue was on. Thanks again to Pedro and Andres for another good one in Floripa!
The Love + Guts—30 Years of Thrasher Magazine art and photo show travels to New York City this Thursday, with new artwork by Mountain, Ngoho, McNett, and Hosoi in addition to the historic photo collection.
