Press Release

Vans Pool Party Legends Steve Caballero and Lance Mountain Celebrate Victory Draw; Pro Tom Schaar Wins 2nd Championship Pool Party Title

Watch contest highlights at: vans.com/poolparty

Roaring crowds filled the legendary Combi Pool arena as the 2017 Vans Pool Party capped off another dramatic skateboarding showdown last night to crown both Lance Mountain and Steve Caballero as this year’s Legends champions. Following a contentious stalemate final, head chief in charge Steve Van Doren settled the score, honoring both impressive performances and granting Caballero and Mountain a shared victory for their equal 85.33 result.

In the pros division, 2017 champion Tom Schaar’s unremitting domination of the Combi Pool shows no signs of slowing down, as he flowed through the course with undeniable precision to earn him his second Vans Pool Party championship title to date. Fellow ripper Cory Juneau wasn’t far behind, executing his sultry smooth lines throughout the bowl to place 2nd, while 3rd place winner and arguably one of the most exciting players to watch of the field, Clay Kreiner presented a truly memorable performance, heavily amplified by his fearless attempts at landing a massive heelflip frontside air over the channel into the round bowl.
