Amateur Combi Pool Party at Vans

To see the Amateur Combi Pool Party results, click here.
Hey Gang: Colby has been invited to the AM Combi Pool Party
at Van's on January 29th. I have already submitted a list of his sponsors
and wanted to make sure you were aware of him competing.
What is especially nice, is that the invite came from Don Bostick himself.
Thanks, Rick Franz. Photo X.Lannes
I Skate, Therefore I Am -Home- Yes! isTia skateboard blog talks about skateboarders, skaters, vert, ramp, skateparks, pool, backyard pools, kidney pool, pink motel, supreme skateboard, copying, skateboarding photography, skate rock, concrete disciples, daily skate news, Vans, Venice skatepark, skate spots  and skateboard news. There are plenty of other skate websites that publish skateboard news faster than me, and better than me (Transworld, The Berrics, Thrasher, Slap magazine, skatedaily, crailtap, juice magazine, skate and annoy,…), so I won’t just give the skate news, I’ll also tell you what I think about it even if I’m wrong. Then you can conform and think like me too and impress your friends with your profound knowledge of the skateboarding industry. LOL
The 2011 skateboard calendar is starting in 9 days, exactly on January 29 at Vans Skateparks in Orange with the Amateur Combi Pool Party at the Vans Skatepark. It is featuring the top 30 amateurs 15 and under and the top 18 amateurs 16 and over. I have heard that the skater list is insane, but I have not seen the list! An it’s by invitation only! Wait for a list update within the next couple of hours… Although there is limited seating in the park, if you’re anywhere near Orange County, you won’t want to miss seeing the most amazing kids ripping up the world famous Combi Pool.
