The Vans Girls Combi Pool contest is always a great event, that's a given. But this year was insane. The girls in every age group were going off! Back to back tricks, insane height - did you catch Alana Smith's air?,  Julz Lynn with her aggressive and powerful roll-ins, skates combi as if it's her personal backyard bowl,  & Nora Vasconcellos landing that kick flip had the crowd going crazy. The girls were using every inch of the entire combi - nothing was off limits.

We got to see 11 year old Brighton Zeuner and 15 yr old Poppy Starr Olsen skate in their very first pro contest. After qualifiers it was Brighton leading, but at the end of the day it was Poppy who took the win - not a bad way to start a pro career for both girls!

Jordyn Barratt threw down solid run after run and took the win for the 15 and over group, and it was Dora Varrella from Brazil who won the 14 and under group.

There was a whole group of girls that came all the way from Brazil that gave the USA girls a run for their money, they were all charging hard, but best of all, having so much fun.

This years Vans Girls Combi felt like the best one ever - a great way to start of 2016.

Thanks to Vans, WCS, Dave Duncan, all the judges, and volunteers for putting on an amazing contest!
