Broken boards equals broken dreams. Chris Russell had it in the bag but one too many hang-ups enabled Tom Schaar to spin his way to the top. Meanwhile, Pedro Barros stole the show with a death defying NBD. 10 years of the Pool Party and this was the best one yet! Cheers, Vans!

NHS opened their museum to a select group of family, friends, and rippers. From Steve Olson to Eric Koston, we all gathered to revisit history and share skateboarding stories in all its glory. Great job Novak and congrats on 40 plus years!
Are you still going to be skating into your 40s? Hopefully you'll still have the fire like these legends. Here's Hosoi, Cab, Grosso, Miller, McGill, and others.
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.
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!
Now this is what you call a wild session. The infamous Pink Motel hosted the Camtest benefit, and some seriously insane skating went down. You have to see the mind-bender at 2:34.
