Pedro Barros took first place → VPS Vancouver Finals

Higher, faster, stronger, and full of surprises—today’s incredible Vans Park Series men’s professional park terrain skateboarding competition at the iconic Hastings Skatepark in Vancouver, BC unleashed some of the best lines in VPS history. With close score exchanges during the finals by talent from all over the world, Vans Park Series congratulates defending VPS Men’s Pro Tour, Canada winner Pedro Barros (BRA) for the Brazilian native’s back to back Vancouver victory. Barros’ sharp focus delivered massive runs at unstoppable speeds (including a monstrous backside 540 on the hipped spine), achieving the only 90-point run in the Mother Hastings course. Barros celebrates two podium appearances in the 2018 VPS season so far after earning 2nd place at last month’s VPS Pro Tour, Brazil event, with no signs of slowing down.

2016 VPS Pro Tour, Canada winner Ivan Federico (ITA) makes a comeback onto the VPS podium, utilizing every opportunity to land difficult trick combinations and consistent lines to claim second place. And in a last-minute podium shakedown, rising star Trey Wood (USA)saw glory snatched away by veteran Alex Sorgente (USA), who squeezed into third place during his final run of the contest.

Driving the pressure throughout the event, hungry tour rookies such as semi-finals leader Jagger Eaton (USA) and contest prodigy Keegan Palmer (AUS), left the field shook, bringing a new level of technicality and unpredictability in the race to the VPS World Championships. Next stop, Huntington Beach!
