HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KTLA)  – Professional skateboarder Steve Caballero stopped by the Van Doren Invitational Sunday in Huntington Beach to offer his support to the competitors.

In an interview with KTLA 5 News, Caballero said the competition would be intense.

“The bowl is incredible. They built a cement bowl right here on the beach.

“You’re gonna see a lot of high airs, really cool lines, really technical tricks,” Caballero added.

During the two-day competition, some of the world’s best skateboarders, including bowl-riding phenom Pedro Barros, battled it out on the sand for their share of $100,000 in prize money and top honors.

The event, which premiered this year, was part of the Vans US Open of Surfing.

The Van Doren Invitational ended Sunday.
