Roaring crowds filled the legendary Combi Pool arena as the 2017 Vans Pool Party capped off another dramatic skateboarding showdown. In the pros division, 2017 champion Tom Schaar’s domination of the Combi Pool shows no signs of slowing down, as he flowed through the course with undeniable precision to earn his second Vans Pool Party championship. Fellow ripper Cory Juneau wasn’t far behind, executing his smooth lines throughout the bowl to place 2nd, while 3rd place winner and arguably one of the most exciting skaters to watch, 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.
