This upcoming weekend the 4th annual Pro-tec Pool Party will be taking place at the recently remodeled Vans Skatepark in Orange, California with 40 top pros, masters and ladies skating against each other to take a part of the $90,000 prize purse. The bowl setup is a tough one – it’s an almost exact replica of the Upland Combi bowl which had some victims in it’s day.
For those of us who can’t just jump on a plane and get a ticket to watch it in person, we can catch all of the action with the live webcast right on the Vans.com website Saturday, May 17th starting at 1:00 pm to 9 pm (I’m guessing that is Pacific time so do your math to find out when it is showing on your computer!) And while you are watchign you have the chance to win a guitar signed by all of the winners and win two passes to the Vans Warped Tour.

Pros â€” Rune Glifberg, Bucky Lasek, Omar Hassan, Bob Burnquist, Benji Galloway, Bruno Passos, Josh Borden, Lincoln Ueda, Sergie Ventura, Nolan Johnson, Remy Stratton, Jimmy the Greek
