Vans Combi Pool Makeover

Vans finally stepped up and did what they have been talking about for the last couple of years. The lumpy, slippery, deadly Combi Pool has had a makeover! It's now buttery smooth, and you can turn at speed with no fear of sliding out! It's taken some of the gnar out of the beast and made it a much easier pool to ride, should make for a great Pro-tec Pool Party this year!

On Saturday March 27th 2010 the Barros family had a Bowl-BQ RTMF Style to celebrate Pedro Barros Officially turning Pro.

Pedro invited his friends for a skate session in his backyard bowl at his house in Florianópolis. In true Brazilian style Barros still found time to man the barbecue for the crowd of supporters.

The party was a blast with sun, beer and skating all day long. Since it wasn’t a competition everything went off without any pressure. Skaters were ripping throughout the day, each time a skater hit a good line he earned some cash, and by the end of the day everyone went home with some money. There was a lot of positive energy during the session and once again Florian√≥polis entered into the history books of skateboarding in Brazil, thanks to the RTMF crew.

PEDRO BARROS & DUANE PETERS:
Pedro Takes The Florida Bowlriders to make it 4 in a row!

Pedro Barros has been on a mission this year winning every event he's been in! The Florida Bowlriders Cup was no different, with Pedro sweeping both the Secret Spot and the Kona Pool events, RTMF! Duane Peters Was also out for the Bowlriders Cup and managed a 4th at the secrect spot against the locals. Early rains shut down the Kona event, so DP had to bail from the hostage situation at the park. Later on the rains stopped and they managed to get the bowl dry, but DP had already called it a day and had to pass on skating the Kona contest. Here's some photos shot by Lee Leal.
