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!
Here's one of the heaviest vert sessions to take place in recent memory, including rippers from three generations: Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, Rune Glifberg, Lincoln Ueda, Mike Frazier, Chris Russell, and many others.
It's been five years since the last Rumble in Ramona went down. The vert ramp got a new facelift and the session was back on.
From skate legends to psycho youth, the art of transitions is alive and well as shown in this montage of deep-dish stunts. Only one way to learn to ride pits this gnarly—get in there!
Rhino brings you this week's 'five' with Paul Baldwin, Jimmy Cao, Kyle Berard, Lincoln Ueda, and Nyjah Huston.
Another year, another Pro-Tec Pool party and this one did not disappoint. Here's the finals with the Masters on their way.
Orange County kinda sucks, but the new combi is killer. Check the Thrasher edit of the total bro-down. And that's time. Thanks to Vans for a great weekend!

Photos and words from the second year of Rumble in Ramona
You want highlights from Ramona? How about Mountain, Navarrette, Red, Hosoi, Frazier, Crum, Schaaf, Barros, and Glifberg. Raybourn broke his arm, T-Mag got escorted out, the pin-ups contest was cancelled, and Lincoln Ueda ripped all day and was announced the winner. See you next year.
Rumble In Ramona 2008 was killer. Beers, bands, vert, and scantly clad women all add up to a sick party. Don't goon it this year; start driving now. It's on Saturday the 17th of October. Vert? Let's see some 10 foot airs this time.
