When the ripping is a non-stop, week long affair, you end up with a hard drive worth of footage. Here’s a bonus from the beaches of Huntington, including some Best Trick action.
These finals had everything – Gregson and Hatchell's tech wizardry, Pedro and Russell's muscle, Raven and Ronnie's classic flow, Raybourn's eclectic bag of tricks ... hell, Christian Hosoi was even in there! Watch this twice then go learn eggplants.
This Vans invitational bowl comp has a reputation for being one of the most fun and ripping contests in the world. We'll have videos of these epic sessions throughout the week. Here's a nice edit showing the history and highlights of the comp.
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!
When shit hits the fan, P-Stone is there to capture the action with beer in hand. This is a heavy edit. Buckle up.
Three days of cold Shiner beers, tons of tunes and a skate ramp that looked like a Hot Wheels track.
Eerily reminiscent of Carbondale 10 years later, the song remains the same. Pedro Barros took 1st in bowl and Couch wore no shoes. Algorta BOWL-A-RAMA and P-Stone were there.
Robbie grinds blind, Ronnie breaks the flip-grab rule and Pedro saves the best for last in the VDI best trick event.
Watch Curren, Raney, Russell, Pedro, Ronnie, Greyson, Blair - all your favorites, basically, battle it out in one of the heaviest bowl competitions in modern memory. The kids are taking over and Raven Tershy is leading the charge!
Air gets caught, hands get planted, trophies get raised and Curren Caples almost has to run for his life at the Van Doren Invitational in HB.
