Sick practice at Vans...

Protec Pool Party 2010: D-2

Tonight, Steve Van Doren, the boss of Vans, will sleep well because he is a happy guy: if you add the compounded combination of the vert renewal and the resurfacing of the combi, you can tell that his party will be better than ever! Now, if you judge by the amazing number of people looking for a pass everywhere, it’s already a huge success! And it hasn’t even started yet! Early in the evening Steve was happier than a Pastor contemplating his flock. While dozens of photographers and cameramen where shooting a horde of skaters orderly jumping everywhere like fleas, he harbored a gigantic smile and seemed quite satisfied staring at his new pool while joking with Cab, Hosoi, Omar, Bob and others.

If they like it, I’m happy” he told me.

Do they like it? You must be kiddin’ me? That smooth pool is sick as hell and you will be surprised by the tricks some pros have in store for Saturday. Tonight was the first official day of practice. The pool was even closed to the locals. Picture this: when I met my buddies Allysha Bergado, Asher Bradshaw, Priscilla Lee and Tom Bradshaw, they were gathered in the shop and plotting to go skating to a “secret” spot in a backyard somewhere around Costa Mesa. A secret spot in a backyard? Almost tempting! But, no, the call of the wild was bigger than the threat of the secession…

Here are some picks of tonight’s practice with the most amazing vert skaters of the planet…

Worth a click. Enjoy!
