2015 Girls Combi Pool Classic Results

girls combi 2015This week the girls came from all over the US and Australia to have fun in the the Vans Combi Pool for another classic comp! The 14 and under division had the top 5 girls ages 8 -11, showing everyone that they are the bright future of pool rippers. They looked so small riding in the gigantic size of the Combi, but were blasting airs out with great style! Congratulations to 10 year old Brighton Zeuner from Encinitas for taking the win! In the 15 and over division we saw Autumn Tust from Florida skate hard for 3rd place. The 2014 WCS overall winner Jordyn Barratt was also ripping hard with a smooth style for the # 2 spot. The winner was Poppy Star from Australia, who has won many of her latest comps. She took a bad slam on Thursday and was bleeding so bad, she had to get stitches. I was so proud of her for being so tough that night, and it was great to see her skating strong again Friday and all day saturday for the win!

In the Pro division we saw last years champ (also #1 in 2009) Julz Lynn skating great in warm ups, but had trouble putting together her best runs in the Finals, so she had to settle for 4th. The 2011 champ Allysha Bergado grabbed the #3 spot for her variety of airs and handplants, etc.. #2 went to Lizzie Armanto, (the 2010 champ). Frontside inverts, smooth airs and long powerful frontside smith grinds wer just a few of her stylish moves. The young 14 year old Alana Smith from Arizona did the highest airs I have ever seen a girl do to finish on top! She qualified 1st in the prelims, and rode the finals with confidence. Her highest airs were in the 5' range, and she even went 8' a few days before!! Also in the finals, she flew over the hip and landed fakie into the round straight into a blasting gay twist! Big airs in the square also earned her the well deserved top spot! Congratulations to all of the girls who came out to compete, it made for a good mix of different styles that made it a fun contest to watch! Good Luck to all of you girls in 2015, and Keep on Skating hard! Ride on, D.D.
