The Protec Pool Party 2012

Daniel Cuervo at Vans. Let's share the ride he said...
The Protec Pool Party 2012

I used to live 10 mn from the Combi pool and I used to go there three times a week. Now I live in L.A. and I don’t have time to go anymore.
I’m a true Californian, if it’s too far or if it rains, I just don’t drive… But ultimately, I made a deal with Daniel Cuervo and we are both sharing the drive to go there twice a week.

Daniel is actually going to Vans Skatepark every day because he is preparing the next Protec Pool Party scheduled for May 12th. The Protec Pool Party is the king of pool-bowl contest and the few weeks before the contest are as important as the contest by itself. For the happy few that have the chance to go to the trainings, at any time of the day, the sessions are simply surreal. Imagine seeing live for hours the best skaters in the world, in a closed and protected environment, secretly rehearsing their new lines or tricks. It's the gathering of bowl riding who's who. With those guys, you don’t even have to hit the repeat button. They do a trick in front of you and they repeat it over and over and over until it is as perfect as the creation of the earth… The practice is probably better than being present the day of the contest...

It’s that time again when the best skaters are doing photo shoots with the best pool photographers on hand or filming for their next clip. A couple of weeks ago, Austin Poynter was filming there his new clip for Monster. Last week, it was with Christian Hosoi. Yesterday, some guys were filming Daniel Cuervo and Pat Ngoho… Well it doesn’t stop.

Can’t wait to go again to Vans tomorrow…
