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!

adidas Skateboarding | Partnership with Harold Hunter Foundation

adidas Skateboarding | Partnership with Harold Hunter Foundation

adidas Skateboarding will once again partner with The Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF) for the second year to host a series of special events rooted in the worlds of art, photography, and skateboarding—realms close to the heart of the late legendary skateboarder, Harold Hunter. 

"We’re excited to highlight both the diversity and universality of the skateboarding community," says HHF co-founder and Executive Director Jessica Forsyth. "This year, we have a range of events that celebrate both the local and global appeal of skateboarding and speak to the power of skateboarding as a cultural force that brings people together and creates wonderful opportunities for community building."

The 2018 Harold Hunter Weekend will take place at multiple locations across New York City kicking off with a book release party of Patrik Wallner’s The Eurasia Project. Sponsored in partnership with adidas, the photobook chronicles the travels of Wallner and his companions under the name Visualtraveling, exploring 101 countries across Europe and Asia throughout the last decade.

Now in its twelfth year, the Harold Hunter weekend festivities celebrates everything Harold from skateboarding, art, music, friends, family, and The Big City with this year’s events paying homage to the rising force of women within the skate community. Special to this year’s women empowerment theme, HHF is working closely with Arianna Gil, member of HHF and Founder of Brujas, the all-girls skate collective of New York.

Celebrating unity through skateboarding, adidas Skateboarding and HHF will host a special All Gender Skate Jam at Performance Space New York. Industrial designer Jonathan Olivares recreates the city’s iconic skate spot, 12th & A with skateable installations comprised of pink concrete ledges and extended bleacher. Inspired by the original inner-city New York skate park that gained global recognition for its customizable obstacles and ledges, the city of New York can experience the glory days of 12th & A once again for the special one-day event.

Along with the All Gender Skate Jam, adidas and HHF also present additional activities around the city including a panel discussion and more.

adidas Skateboarding | 3ST Wear Test Barcelona

adidas Skateboarding llevó a cabo el pasado sábado 14 de abril un Wear Test en la ciudad de Barcelona con motivo del lanzamiento de su última franquicia de zapatillas: 3ST. Lo que iba a ser todo un día de patín, desde por la mañana en La Bóbila DIY (Badalona) hasta la tarde en Macba, tuvo que ser modificado por la lluvia. Aun así, las condiciones meteorológicas no impidieron probar y sentir sobre la tabla el feeling de las nuevas 3ST.001 y 3ST.002 a todos los riders e invitados tanto por la marca como por el partner Rufus Skateshop, una de las tiendas más relevantes de skateboarding tanto en la ciudad condal como en todo el panorama internacional, donde tuvo lugar el seeding de 3ST

3ST.001 y 3ST.002 suponen un nuevo enfoque de diseño y es fruto del trabajo conjunto de los mejores diseñadores y riders, uniéndose para redefinir las zapatillas de skate. Los diseñadores de adidas trabajaron estrechamente con Na-Kel Smith y otros skaters profesionales para el desarrollo de estas dos siluetas vulcanizadas con visión de futuro que combinan a la perfección el estilo y la funcionalidad. El proceso de creación fue impulsado por nuevas líneas de diseño, una estética mejorada y materiales premium.
