Pedro Barros Helge Tscharn/Red Bull Content Pool

With a wall-to-wall packed house on hand at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, Cailfornia, Red Bull's own Pedro Barros claimed his first Vans Pro-Tec Pool Party win in the Pro Division and a check for $30,000. At just 16 years old, Barros edged out industry veterans Rune Glifberg, who came in second place, and Andy MacDonald, who placed third.

In the Masters Division, Chris Miller won his sixth Pro-Tec Pool Party title, beating out defending champ Steve Caballero, who took home second, and Lance Mountain, who came in third. Tony Hawk, who finished fourth, came out of retirement to compete for the first time at the Pool Party.

The Pool Party brought out legends like Duane Peters, Mike Nash, Sergie Ventura, Steve Alba and two-time cancer survivor Mike Rogers. But at the same time it doesn't forget to showcase the talents of pros like Tony Trujillo, Omar Hassan, Sandro Diaz and up-and-coming rippers like Alex Perelson, Josh Borden, Zach Miller and Steve Piniero.
