Were you there or did you watch the action at the Vans Pool Party 2013 finals? It goes without stating the obvious that is was going to be one heck of a skateboard contest but it blew me away once again. Here’s a short video summary of some of the action that took place yesterday during the contest.
Opinions on who should have won in the Pros division are once again divided but I believe it’s just so cool to see the level of skating that went down in those bowls. Bucky Lasek pulled out all of his tricks, ruled the entire park and landed tricks in spots that I just can’t see as possible. Pedro Barros – what can you say: he’s a whirlwind in any bowl/pool and the height of his airs and the length of grinds is unbelievable. And Rune is just Rune – smooth and in control. In the Masters division I personally believe it was perfectly clear with Chris Miller continuing to grow older and his skating is just stays plain and simply amazing. Fast and furious, I can’t wait for more video edits and photos to turn up from the Vans Pool Party 2013!
