    The Legends, Masters and Pros all descended upon the Combi Bowl for the 2018 Vans Pool Party, which coincided with Cinco de Mayo. The holiday vibe was definitely infectious and everybody got sick as F! How do these things just keep getting gnarlier?!

    This year’s Pool Party was even more festive than usual as it fell on Cinco De Mayo, and the opening ceremony was kicked off with a traditional mariachi band cranking out tunes next to the bowl.

    One of the best ways to break in a new set of Thunder trucks is on pool coping. Chris Miller knows.

    It’s impossible to encapsulate the ripping all in one edit, so we made another! The Combi is a massive pit, take nothing for granted.

    The Combi Pool Party never disappoints, and the action this year was heavier than ever. In the end, Pedro Barros went ballistic and blew it out for first place. Thanks again for the good times, Vans.

    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!

    Closing out Maxallure’s first video, Dre lets the world know he’s no longer just the young buck at Potrero, and no spot in the City is safe from his killing spree. This man is the future.

    With a penchant for curb wizardry and risky ride-on grinds, Marlin gets his tech fix in the South of France. Check the moves before you smash into your next slappy. Some people just see things differently.

    Hugo Montezuma x RVCA
    No public park or private pit is safe from Hugo as he sets his sights on the Southwestern states—the coping gets absolutely crushed in this part from RVCA. Just wait for the Money Grab at Hell Bowl. Cha-ching!

    RIP IN PEACE: Jeff Grosso
    Rest in peace, Grosso. Jeff ALWAYS skated with style. His grinds were long, his backside airs were head-high and his handplants were stalled out and sadder than a funeral. He will be sorely, sorely missed. Our hearts go out to his family and many friends.

    Hear ye! Hear ye! We have a new King of Crust upon the horizon, Sir Mason Silva! Mason pops an unfathomable ollie (over a rail, past the flat) into a blistering bank. That’s how you score the front! More Silva inside as he weighs in on the heroes and heavyweights who have shaped his skating. How did Dashawn Jordan turn into an Olympic athlete seemingly overnight? Find out! Getting caught masturbating? Wack. Over-instagramming? Wack. New Palace pro Jamal Smith schools us on how he finesses the skate industry. Seems to be working. On the travel tip, GT, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, Chris Pfanner and the rest of the Volcom crew explore the wonderful world of Deutschland. From the biergartens to the streets, these guys are a force to be reckoned with. Stateside we have the FA guys trekking from Dallas to Oklahoma City, gobbling up dog shit sandwiches and epic spots every step of the way and the Monster crew gets sick in the Colorado Rockies. Need more? Martino Cattaneo gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment, we present you with a skater’s guide to head injuries, Emmanuel Guzman takes some high-speed plunges and Steel Pulse, Wolf Parade and Witch all get grilled. This issue is so chockfull of stoke you’re gonna need two faces for it to melt.
