Vans Pro Tec Pool Party 2012

The 8th annual Combi Bowl Pool Party went down last Saturday, May 12th, at the Vans skatepark at the Block in Orange, Southern California. Confusion contributor Sean Manning got himself a golden ticket in, along with a 100+ other photographer and videographers. Pedro Barros (surprise surprise) won first place and a shitload of money, Rune Glifberg and Bucky Lasek got 2nd and 3rd. In the Master’s Steve Caballero walked away with the glory, after only recently recovering (last week) from a broken collar bone as a result of a motorcycle accident. Tony Hawk and Lance Mountain took 2nd and 3rd. But it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you skate the pool….
