2012 Pro-tec Pool Party Final Results

Seventeen-year-old Brazilian Pedro Barros defended his first Pro-tec Pool Party Pro crown to win $28,000 at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, California Saturday night as he again fought off Rune Glifberg in second place and Bucky Lasek who returned to the Pro-tec podium after missing last year with a broken wrist.

The Masters division took on the look of a Bones Brigade reunion as Steve Caballero returned from recent injury to claim first place and $14,000 ahead of fellow Brigade alums Tony Hawk, the runner-up, Lance Mountain in third and Mike McGill in fourth. It was the first time that those four had competed in the same contest since the early ’90s and Stacy Peralta and George Powell were on hand for the occasion. Cab, who six weeks ago broke his collar bone in a motorbike mishap, was not expecting to compete until being cleared to begin rehab just a week ago. He also won in 2010 and is the only Masters competitor to unseat 6-time winner Chris Miller, who placed 9th this year. The night was capped off with Hawk receiving a huge cake in honor of his 44th birthday today.
