Anyone who wasn’t lucky enough to be around skateboarding in the 80s when vert skateboarding and professional rivalry was at its peak, this was a chance to see some of that energy reinvigorate itself at this year’s Pro-tec Pool Party. And while pro skating is seeing a constant progression on all fronts, it seems that the masters are fighting the battle as hard as anyone. Simply put, they are not going quietly into the sunset; instead the likes of Cab, Hawk, Lance Mountain, and Chris Miller are still letting us see why we fell in love with them all those years ago. Check out the Masters video here.
