Amateur Combi Pool Party: list of invited skaters

World Cup Skateboarding just published the list of all the amateurs selected for the next Amateur Combi Pool Party 2012: list of invited skaters. Take a look and check if your name is there...

This year's Vans Amateur Combi Pool Party is set to take place January 27th and 28th, 2012 at the Vans Skate Park in Orange, California. The festivities will kick off on Friday with a 5:30 p.m. registration followed by a 6 p.m. practice session. What makes the Combi Pool so exceptional is that it some kind of copycat of the old Upland Pipeline Skatepark that was destroyed about two decades ago. The 9 foot plus transitions only adds to its gnarliness. The Orange Mall skatepark is also the only remaining Vans Skatepark in existence. The company had facilities in Houston and Orlando, Florida. Houston was closed several years ago and Vans has to shut down Orlando skatepark in early 2012. Just in case you have never been there before, the Vans Skatepark in Orlando was a massive homage to skateboarding. It featured a 25,000 square foot indoor street course, a 15,000 square foot outdoor course, an 8,000 square foot warm-up course, a concrete bowl, ramps and an arcade. It was forced to close due to property re-development and non-renewal of the company's lease.

On Saturday 28th, the contest will start at 9:00 a.m. with a round of practice sessions before the first qualifying round takes place. The heats are slated to begin at noon. Things will finish with an evening awards ceremony. Up for grabs is a $5,000 prize purse. This year some of the hottest kids in skateboarding have been invited to participate: Archer Braun, Morgan Wolf, Cory Juneau, Evan Doherty, Alex Sorgente, Heimana Reynolds and Austin Poynter are just a few of them.

Evan Doherty, also dubbed “Big E”, was born on Salem, New Hampshire Evan is a unique kid. Not so unique in the fact that like most kids his age, he loves to eat, sleep, & skate. But unique in the fact that unlike most other 8yr olds, Evan already has a 540, a McTwist, a wide variety of other tricks he can pull out on the vert ramp at the drop of a hat. And oh yeah, Tony Hawk recently saw some footage of Evan skating and subsequently tweeted "540, 8 years old, nuff said." He currently lives in Greenwood, Missouri. Read Evan Doherty Interview...
