Vans Pool Party 2015: Blog

This year marked the 10th Anniversary of the Vans Pool Party and this was the gnarliest one to date! Grosso stirring it up on the live webcast, Steve Van Doren on the grill, some of the heaviest skating to go down in the Combi! If you were there you were not disappointed. When the dust settled, Tom Schaar took first and Pedro Barros shut it down with an insane transfer from the square to the round bowl. Thanks to Vans for a great time, see you next year! —Rhino
