Vans Park Series - First Stop For The Women, Brazil.

Friday, April 13, 2018











All info + photos via The Boardr 


So much good news this year for women in skateboarding - thanks to Vans! As most of you know, Girls Combi had the same prize purse as the men - $65,000 total - and as we head into the first stop on the 2018 Vans Park Series Tour, the women will get the same prize purse as the men while competing in Brazil!

The other amazing news is that the women have 3 stops (the men have 4) + World Championships this year - which means more skate time, more opportunities to make money, and to be visible for their sponsors.

Here's how it all works:

Dates: May 30 - June 2, 2018
Location: Sao Paulo, Brazil

For the women, the Prelims at Global Qualifiers stops are open for anyone to enter and you can register and save your spot HERE at The Boardr.

* Female Select Pros do not need to register. They are already seeded in the Semi-Finals. (see photos and list below to see who those skaters are)

Brighton Zeuner, Grace Marhoefer, Jordyn Barratt, Kihana Ogawa, Kia Nakamura, Lizzie Armanto, Nora Vasconcellos, Yndiara Asp

* 2018 Women's Tour Challengers - Not applicable anymore. All women’s events, even Global Qualifiers, are open at the Prelims level.
