There’s no way around it. 16-year old Brazillian Pedro Barros is dominating the bowl ranks. The defending Pro-tec Pool Party hydrated by vitaminwater champ comes in having won the last three Bowl-A-Rama titles in Wellington and Bondi. He surfs every day and skates in his backyard that's equipped with a pool and vert ramp. A gold medalist at the 2010 X Games in park, Pedro followed that up with silver last year. He also competes in Big Air. Pedro's coming into Pro-Tec Pool Party after winning Bondi in February, and a contest in his backyard in April. Check out Thrasher's highlights from Pedro's Bowl contest.
What can get better than that? This year we have some pretty rad prizes including; Vans iPhone cases, Pro-tec Pool Party skate deck signed by all the competing riders, Pro-tec helmet signed by Steve Caballero, Vans shoes and... the best prize ever, but I have to keep that one as a surprise. All you have to do to win is watch the live webcast and be the first to answer the trivia question. Easy as pie or should I saw an ollie.
