Pro-Tec Pool Party 2012: Pro results

Pro-Tec Pool Party 2012: Pro results

The eight Pro-Tec Pool Party 2012; the most awaited bowl contest of the season, showcasing the best bowl-riders of the planet, wrapped Saturday at the Vans Combi in Orange, Calif. As usual, the World Cup Skateboarding organized the event and Dave Duncan MCeed the contest. Both the masters and pro divisions were so close all the way through that it would have been hard to choose a clear-cut winner.

The Masters contest was the real highlight for those of you who put an emphasis on lines and style whereas the Pros competition is your kinda stuff if you are more centered on speed, power

and not-named-yet tricks.

As always, we are happy we don’t have to judge the contest. Even if, at the end, Brazilian Powerhouse Vans skateboarder Pedro Barros came out on top for the pros for the third time in a row, as expected and Chris Miller, one of the smoothest skaters of all time, took the Masters for the 7th time in a row , also as expected.

 in the top three will remain a mystery forever.

Skateboarding is lame, or so some say...

Josh Rodriguez is MRZ self-confessed favorite rider. He did not make it into the top ten, nevertheless, his runs
were flawless. This picture tells a lot about the level of the other competitors...
