Vans’ Second Annual Girls Combi Pool Classic took place this past Saturday; a unique event in women's skateboarding that brings together the top female skaters in the world to compete. Hoopla riders took top honors in the Pro event; with 15 year old Allysha Bergado taking home 1st place, and hoopla creator, Mimi Knoop, coming in a close 2nd! Hoopla rider, Nora Vasconcellos put together some of the most creative lines of the day and finished in 6th place respectively. Annika Vrklan also placed 6th in the AM contest. Congrats to all the girls and thanks to Vans for the amazing event! (Photos shot by: Julian Bleecker, Garret Naka, Dan Sparagna.)
