Vans Girls Combi Pool Classic • Nov. 5, 2011
This past weekend marked the 2nd annual Vans Girls Combi Pool Classic at the famous combi pool in Orange county, CA. This is easily one of the most exciting female skate contests of the year; a fun, high-energy-packed setting with the top girls in bowl skating all competing for the $10,000 purse put up by Vans. I helped CB Burnside and Vans plan the event along with the peeps at World Cup Skateboarding. I was also excited to design the name/logo for the event.
The level of girl’s skateboarding is continuing to rise at a rapid rate- and it was one of the most competitive contests I have ever skated in. I was very honored to place 2nd since any one of the top ladies in the finals could have landed on the podium. A big congrats to Allysha Bergado on taking home the first major pro win of her career- and to all the other girls that threw down big in the contest.
A BIG thanks to Vans- and all of the sponsors of the event that hooked up the girls with goodies: Pro-tec, Rockstar Energy Drink, Sambazon, Hoopla, 187 pads, All Girl Skate Jam, Silly Girl, Randoms, Poseidon Fund, Stila cosmetics, and Rockstar bearings.
Here are some pics from around the web of the event (and some of mine too):
