It's Miller Time at the annual 2013 Vans Pool Party contest hosted by the Vans Skatepark in Orange, CA. Michaela Eichenbaum catches up with Masters winner Chris Miller as he reveals a few of his favorite skaters including Pedro Barros, Rune Glifberg and his son, and fellow pro skater, Zach. Chris and some of the world's best pool skaters gathered at the legendary Combi Bowl for a chance to win $115,000 in cash prizes in front of a rowdy, yet knowledgeable, So Cal crowd. Seven-time Masters winner Miller rebounded from a poor showing at the 2012 event to top Steve Caballero in 2nd and Christian Hosoi in 3rd.

Grosso was freebasing cocaine days before this classic skate video was filmed.
When Jeff Grosso was working on Santa Cruz's 1989 skate video "Speed Freaks," he filmed all the footage over the course of a couple of days. And most of it came on one run at a vert ramp. Grosso rewatched the part and shared his memories for Vans' "Adventures with Chris" series. Grosso turned 21 days before the infamous eyebrow shaving incident. He spent his 21st birthday freebasing cocaine for two days straight so that goes a long way toward explaining his erratic behavior. Even though the "Speed Freaks" part is legendary, Grosso thinks it's horrible and regrets being so hungover that he couldn't skate better.

Highlights from the Pro and Masters divisions of the annual Vans Pool Party skate contest held in the legendary Combi Bowl at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, California. Skaters include Bucky Lasek (1st), Pedro Barros (2nd), Rune Glifberg (3rd), and legends and young bucks like Christian Hosoi, Tom Schaar, Steve Caballero and Jeff Grosso.
