In honor of this weekend’s Girls Combi Classic, we put together this list of 10 female skaters (in no particular order) that have made major contributions to the past, present and future of the sport. So if you don’t know, now you know.
A new victor claimed the Vans Girls Combi Classic title on Saturday when 15-year-old Poppy Star from Australia won her first official Pro contest! Poppy has been a rising star over the last few years ever since she dominated the 14 and under division to earn first in the rankings during the 2014 World Cup Skateboarding bowl series. In 2015, she follows suit and finished the year off again as #1 in the 15 and over division.
With a triumphant performance that fueled competition against four previous Combi Pool winners, Poppy Star claimed her first Combi Classic title. Final scores for the podium resulted in close calls for the entire competitive field, only to award 2013 title holder Nora Vasconcellos with second place, and Vans team rider Lizzie Armanto with third place.
Los días 16 y 17 de enero de este año se llevó a cabo a cabo la quinta edición del Vans Girls Combi Pool Classic en Orange, California. Se trata de un concurso de bowl exclusivamente femenino donde chicas de todo el mundo compiten en tres categorías:
Congrats to the 22-year-old Brazilian beast, Iago Magalhaes, on winning yesterday’s Am Combi Pool Party and flying home $2000 richer. Thanks to all who came out and supported the scene and congrats to everyone who skated. You all killed it.
