    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.

    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!

    Kevin Calderwood's "Coattails" Video
    From the streets of San Jose comes a full-length of rare achievement. Crisp VX colors, appearances from Tiltmode royalty, Ben Raemers footy and a hectic ender part from Peter Raffin make it a hell of a watch. This will start your skate day off right.

    Emerica's "Green" Video
    Continuing their already impressive legacy, Emerica strikes gold again with Green. Dakota pushes his rail game to new limits and Dickson rips every set and bank to shreds like a rabid wolverine while the rest of the team fills out a killer montage. This is canon.

    Knock, knock. Who’s there? Jack O’Grady with a backside 50-50 on a massive marble hubba, that’s who! These Am Scramblers are no F-ing joke! Jack O’Grady, Aaron Goure, Jesse Lindloff, Gage Boyle, Griffin Gass, Jacopo Carozzi, Ish Cepeda, Myles Willard, Breana Geering and Giovanni Vianna filled up the vans this year and we have the deets on it all. The Scramble gets hotter each year. And speaking of epic road trips, Chocolate’s new ams—Hakeem, Carl and James—make the trek from Toronto to Jersey City to eat Garbage Plates and gobble up spots. Up front we have Milton Martinez’s SOTY party recap. Smoookes! Think you’ve got what it takes to become a professional amateur? Your favorite TM’s spill the beans on how to make it in the biz. Mark Appleyard breaks down his five great claims to fame AND we’ve got the annual T-Eddy awards, where even the losers are winners. Zounds-wise, Orville Peck talks about being openly gay in the country-music world and Population Control and Plague Vendor beat some eardrums into submission. Kids, don’t try this at home!
