Press Release:

After an absolutely electric VPS event in Brazil two weeks ago, the fierce pool of competitors are back, looking to elevate their performance in Montréal, Canada for the third qualifier event of the 2019 Vans Park Series Pro Tour. As a critical midway-point of the season, competitors will head to the Montréal Olympic Park, the landmark site of the 1976 Summer Olympics, this weekend, July 12-13 to once again improve their Park Series rankings. With the 2019 VPS World Championships only two months away, skaters are feeling the pressure to showcase the best of what they’ve got.

This is a historic stop both for the Park Series tour and the country of Canada, as skaters will experience for the first time, over 38,000 square feet of brand new, permanent built-to-spec park terrain, donated by Vans Park Series and the Montréal Olympic Park to the province of Québec. This skatepark will be the first-ever Canadian VPS-certified park terrain legacy course. The new park — christened the Vans Skatepark — will be free, open to the public, accessible to skateboarders of all skill levels and aims to nurture skate culture and local community.

Pedro Barros’ Win at the 2017 Park Series event in Vancouver, B.C.

Last month’s Brazil event delivered some of the most action-packed days ever seen on a VPS tour. Brazilian natives Yndiara Asp and Pedro Barros took first place, firing up the passionate local fans that came out to support them. Check out the latest event highlights here.  Pedro Barros will once again be one to watch; after sitting out of the first event in Shanghai, Barros came to the São Paulo ready to prove himself in front of a home crowd. After two consecutive years of winning the VPS Vancouver stops, all eyes will be on him to see if he can repeat the performance at the new, uncharted Vans legacy park in Montréal.

ABOUT VANS PARK SERIES

The 2019 Vans Park Series Pro Tour is the premier competitive platform for professional park terrain skateboarding. Spanning five countries over a five-month season, the series features four global qualifiers for men and women and culminates with the official Vans Park Series World Championships to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah in September. Showcasing an international roster of skateboarding’s elite pros, Vans Park Series awards a total series purse of $800,000 (USD) and advocates its principal commitment to prize parity for men and women.

Established in 2016, Vans Park Series’ mission is to inspire youth and grow skateboarding participation worldwide by defining a global foundation for park terrain competition that promotes the creative culture of skateboarding. Currently, there are two VPS-certified skateparks donated by Vans Park Series abroad, in Malmö, Sweden (2016) and São Paulo, Brazil (2018)—along with the recently renovated Vans Off The Wall Skatepark in Huntington Beach, CA, just a few miles from Vans’ global headquarters. Vans Park Series uniquely defines the park terrain format with its exclusive points system, judging guidelines and qualifying park terrain course criteria. Additional information and live webcast details will be available on the official Vans Park Series iOS app and online.
