This year, girls are coming from everywhere in the USA and including from abroad and this is why Vans is putting up a $12,000 Purse for the Girls’ Combi Pool Contest.
Poppy Starr Olsen, for example is coming from Australia to participate in the contest. She recently said that: “I have been included in the Under 14 group of skaters competing in the 2013 Vans Girls Combi Pool Classic to be held on the 18th and 19th of January in California. Can’t wait to be there and skate with the best girl skaters!”

And let’s not forget the upcoming girls: Beverly Flood, who just signed with Flood Control, Mikayla Sheppard, Arianna Carmona. All those girls are ready, willing and able.
During the Girls Special that I did on istia.tv, the girls told me that they did not know what their status was. Amateur? Pro? So, giving the problem in classifying riders between Am and Pro, this year’s Girls Combi Pool Classic will be divided in three divisions grouping the girls by age more than status.
Division one (14 and under) represents the young, upcoming riders.
Division two (15-27) represents the high energy, pro performance that have grown to define the scene over the past few years, amazing.
Division three (28+) is a representation of all of the women who have been pioneering and inspiring for years. Division three is representative of the masters division for the guy’s events and much needed to highlight these women. The ages are not a definitive placement, but hopefully allow the girls to shine the brightest.
Then bring it all together with one more prize crossing the divisions with $1,000 for the overall best run of the day.
This contest will be awesome.
