On Saturday we were fortunate enough to make it down to the Vans Skatepark in Orange for the annual Pro-Tec pool party. This contest, which as the title eludes is in fact more like one big party, featured many of today's top skaters (vert and pool) and also some of the biggest legends in the sport competing in the coveted Master's division. We were treated to the likes of Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Tony Hawk, Chris Miller, Lance Mountain and many more. As if that wasn't good enough the Pro division was also stacked with our man Bucky Lasek competing with friends Rune Glifberg, Pedro Barros, Andy Mac and more. Literally, for five plus hours we couldn't take our eyes off the action. And, if we learned a thing or two from this illustrious event it's that pool skating is alive and well and that "old" guys can still kick ass!!!
