Last nights Park Skateboarding Championships Qualifiers in Nanjing, China  was insane - so many girls in one place skating hard - 35 women from 18 countries! They came from all over the world and the camaraderie was awesome.

Only 23 move on to today's semi-finals were they will meet up with the top 7 skaters from Vans Park Series. Then we will watch the comp go directly to women's finals - so buckle up, because it's going to be a long night here in the USA watching it all go down!

This competition is new for all the ladies - they now have the exact same scoring system as the mens comps - so when you see lower than normal scores than you are used to on the screen, don't freak out - the skater you are watching may actually be in the top 5! The ladies will also receive the same prize money as the men - $30,000 to the winner

Equality is HUGE in this comp!
