The most explosive Vans Pro Park Series yet wrapped up at the end of October, as we watched incredible skaters finish out the tour in the 2018 Pro Finals, held in Suzhou China. 3 years strong, the Vans Park Series is the official world championship for both men’s and women’s premier park terrain skateboarding, and it’s clear after this year’s series, the best of the best showed up to compete.

Elite skaters from all over the world toured across 5 different countries competing for podium spots against reigning champions, solid tour challengers, and new rising talent. Pro Tour points and prize money were up for grabs at tour stops: Brazil (Sao Paulo), Canada (Vancouver), Sweden (Malmö), and the United States (Huntington Beach), spanning from June-October.

All this led up to the 2018 Pro Finals in which 25 men and 25 women battled it out in the semi-finals to land the top 8 final spots.  Competition was fierce, and crowds were wild as skaters tried to secure their spot on the 2018 Pro Tour Championship podium.

 

Let’s take a look at who made it:

 

2018 Women's Pro Finals | Suzhou,CHI 

 

3rd Place - Jordyn Barratt (USA) 84.33

After a strong 2018 season, Barratt came out strong in the finals with a trick-packed run with some serious power and clean lines, landing her the 3rd spot.

2nd Place - Yndiara Asp (Brazil) 88.13

Brazil’s own Yndiara Asp once again made the podium after a killer last run, following a hard slam. She quickly made an impressive turnaround filled with high speed and stylized tricks that the crowd went wild for.

1st Place -  Brighton Zeuner (USA) 89.67

Zeuner claimed her 2nd VPS champion title on Saturday, after a podium finish at every stop this season. She pulled out all the stops to land her first 2018 event victory with a crowd-pleasing run including a kickflip indy, one of the few flip tricks of the women’s event.  

 

  

2018 Men's Pro Finals | Suzhou, CHI

 

3rd Place -  Tom Schaar (USA) 88.03

Schaar had an impressive comeback after injuries kept him out of a large part of the 2018 series. He stunned the crowd with some massive air and powerful tricks landing him in 3rd place overall.

2nd Place - Pedro Barros (BRA) 89.83

Brazil’s favorite, Pedro Barros, had an incredible series landing on the podium of every single tour stop. He fought until the end as the most consistent skater, keeping his streak alive with a huge run in the finals but not quite enough to beat out Sorgente for the top spot.

1st Place -  Alex Sorgente (USA) 90.37

Sorgente challenged 2nd place Barros, until the very end, laying down a powerful and trick-heavy last run, his killer technique taking the highest score of the day and landing him his second VPS champion title.

 

 -----------------------------

 

The 2018 VPS Pro Finals was the wildest to date. An incredible combination of powerful, technical, and stylized skating took place at one of the sweetest VPS built courses yet, in Suzhou, China. After a gnarly 2018 series, Brighton Zeuner & Alex Sorgente were declared Vans Park Series Champions.
