Vans Girls Combi is coming up quick!  The contest date is this coming Saturday, January 21 at Vans Skate Park in Orange. The girls have been flying in and practicing since early December, as this is one of THE biggest all-female skate contests of the year.

With the Combi being the pool that most skaters have a "love/hate" relationship with, this event is always exciting and full of surprises, and the prize purse ($22,000 total) for Pros and AMs is pretty sweet.

This is a Private event and as of this time no live web feed has been announced - but we will be posting live on Facebook and Instagram with updates and have a full report on the site soon after.

      1. Lame. I can't believe it isn't open to the public for viewing. And no live webcast? I'm sure you're doing your best, but what a missed opportunity for the sport and it's fans.
