Highlights | 2018 Men’s Pro Finals – Semifinals & Final – Suzhou, China | Vans Park Series

 

Skateboarding

68 men from 23 countries battled it out in the most diverse Park Skateboarding World Championship qualifiers ever.

Men’s qualifying for the 2018 Park Skateboarding World Championships got underway this morning at the Fish-mouth Wetlands park terrain course. With 68 skaters from 23 countries attempting to earn one of 26 semi-finals spots, where they will meet 4 Vans Park Series finalists from Suzhou, the competition was both fierce and fun. Newcomers to the international scene India and Turkey received warm support from the crowd and their fellow competitors. The noticeable progression of both teams’ skateboarding abilities, just in the time they’ve been here in China, speaks volumes to the value of international event experience and the chance to skate with the best park terrain skateboarders in the world.

When the dust settled after another outstanding day of competition here in Nanjing, three skaters with three distinctly different approaches to skating the course emerged on the top of the leaderboard. Heimana Reynolds (USA) flowing and powerful runs with his signature frontside invert and massive madonnas landed him in the 1st place qualifying spot. He was followed by Luiz Francisco (BRA), a rookie who has made a name for himself this year by making the finals in 5 different park terrain events rode his massive frontside boneless ones and giant airs into 2nd place. Vincent Matheron (FRA) whose aggressive technical approach honed in the iconic Marseille Skatepark had some of the most difficult tricks of the day over the spine including a 360º kickflip to Losi transfer, landing him solidly in the 3rd place spot.
