Bucky Lasek makes a defiant comeback as the winner of the 2013 Vans Pool Party unseating defending champion Pedro Barros for his third Pro title since 2010. Bucky claimed $28,000 with former winners Pedro Barros and Rune Glifberg placing second and third after a heated Pro final featuring impressive runs by young guns Cory Juneau, Tom Scharr and Austin Poynter.
The Masters final had its own exciting head to head battle as six-time Masters winner Chris Miller took the crown from defending champion Steve Caballero. Miller’s historical five-year winning streak was previously defeated by Cab in 2010. Still a crowd favorite, Cab came in a close second with Christian Hosoi placing third. The night ended with an inspiring change of guard, as old victors regained the throne making next year’s Pool Party truly unpredictable.
