The Vans Park Series 2018 Huntington Beach leg went off last weekend, with Real Skateboards all terrain vehicle Zion Wright taking first place in the men's finals and Kisa Nakamura in the women's. Check out some of the highlights here then scroll down for a full recap!
A remarkable showcase of elite park terrain skateboarding swept Huntington Beach crowds as the 2018 Vans Park Series Pro Tour concluded its exciting final rounds earlier today. The men’s lineup saw an interesting mix of VPS tour challengers and select pros, only to be outshined by event wildcard and winner of the Huntington Beach stop, Zion Wright (USA). Wright proved to be the one to beat, attacking the park with his smooth, all-terrain style and producing the most diverse runs of the day. A rookie pro, Wright took the lead in both semi’s and finals to mark his first-ever victory on the VPS circuit.
In second place, one of the most accomplished park skaters, Pedro Barros (BRA) was looking to take it all on the new course design, blasting huge airs at high speed, and landing a switch backside air after time, while rising challenger Jagger Eaton (USA) unleashed his best technical style to secure third. This year’s men’s finals results definitely brought a unique energy to the race, welcoming new faces to the podium just before the penultimate stop in Malmö this September.
