Tom Schaar & Sakura Yosozumi win Vans Park Series Brazil

Vans Park Series Brazil closed out the first 2018 Pro Tour event of the season with well over 5,000 spectators in attendance.

The Vans Park Series Brazil event saw incredible skateboarding from winners Tom Schaar and Sakura Yosozumi. Tom Schaar secured an early lead with the highest run score of the entire event, showcasing his signature colossal airs in clean fast-paced runs, while Brazil’s Pedro Barros kept the crowd on edge, executing a powerful air-heavy run with only minutes left in the final to finish in second. Finally, Tristan Rennie celebrates his first podium appearance ever, attacking every wall with ease for a third place finish.

“I’m just stoked I’m down here in Brazil, it’s amazing, this is the greatest crowd I’ve ever seen,” said Schaar. When asked about the race to world champion, Schaar responded, “I’m going to take this all in, contest by contest, and see where I land.”

In the Women’s division, Japanese pro Sakura Yosozumi conquered the park course with expert skill, landing a jaw-dropping backside noseblunt revert, and using every inch of the park to land multiple tricks one after the other. Yosozumi surpassed the field in semi’s as an Open Qualifier and emerged as the victor of the Women’s Brazil event. Runner up and the undisputable crowd favorite, Brazilian Yndiara Asp demonstrated lightning speed and variety to outrun her peers. In third, VPS Select Pro and the first-ever park terrain women’s world champ from 2016, Brighton Zeuner returned to the podium with her unique style and creative trick selection.
