It is that time of the year again. The Vans Pool Party is streaming live this Saturday (May 16th, 2015) starting at 19h (EST). The show is going to be crazy again this year.

That format only leaves 5 places in the finals that are still available for the pro finals. The semifinals for those five spots are going to be crazy. Since my friend Tristan Rennie won the pro division last year he is already in the money. He better not just sloth his way through the finals or I will have to pay his brother to beat him up. Good luck Tristan (or is that... [Voir la suite]

As you might have read, I was just in Los Angeles and got to spend a lot of time with the kids during their practice sessions during the last couple of weeks. Some of the Canadians were having a hard time getting runs in so some of the better kids (the ones that finished top 3 plus the Rennies) would block the other kids so that the old guys could get some runs in.

Man are those kids good.
In third place for the 14 and under is Kiko. He is listed as... [Voir la suite]
