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

3/26/2020A cross-generational gang of vert dogs brought their A game to the B Team Ramp. Kreiner, Wettstein, Perelson, Lasek and the other high flyers got tech way above the deck. Get up close to the moves scorching across the Gator Skins.
3/26/2020This crew of vertical veterans and new blood ran the ramp through the wringer while the rain threatened to stop a good time. You already know Bucky Lasek and Andy Mac made it out, but you’ll have to check the photos to see what other legends showed up to support the scene.
3/14/2020It’s been a year but the love keeps flowing. We’ve added new testimonials to this retrospective page. Take a few moments and soak up more stories from the life and times of Jake Phelps.
3/13/2020Navs took the Rumble out of Ramona, bringing the Tumble down to Tucson and Willis Kimbel, Cory Juneau, Chris Russell and the rest of the crew did some serious damage to the pit. Watch the dudes sky and the coping fly at what hopefully becomes a new Southwest tradition.
3/13/2020Some bonafide icons and a bunch of vert-hungry rippers found the desert to be a fitting place to bring the heat. Navs, Salba, Suski, Puleo, Russell and a bunch more tore the coping off the bowl or cheered as the others did. Once again, the Muscle crushed it.
