Pedro Barros defended his first Pro-tec Pool Party Pro crown to win $28,000 at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, California Saturday night as he again fought off Rune Glifberg in second place and Bucky Lasek who returned to the Pro-tec podium after missing last year with a broken ankle.
The Masters division took on the look of a Bones Brigade reunion as Steve Caballero returned from recent injury to claim first place and $14,000 ahead of fellow Brigade alums Tony Hawk, the runner-up, Lance Mountain in third and Mike McGill in fourth. It was the first time that those four had competed in the same contest since the early ’90s and Stacy Peralta and George Powell were on hand for the occasion.
Those who missed the action live can find complete event coverage including in-depth blogging, photos and videos at the Vans website. vans.com/poolparty. Other recaps can be seen over at Thrasher magazine, The Skateboard Mag, Transworld and RIDE Channel.
