The inaugural Women’s Pro Park Finals highlighted eight of the world’s best skateboarders going for their chance at the coveted Dew Tour title. Coming into the fourth and final run, the battle was fierce. Nicole Hause (USA), who wasn’t a podium contender after the third run, came back to wow the crowd with a frontside air, Cab nose grind, hand plant and an alley oop backside ollie. She scored an 89.33 out of 100.00 to securely earn the top spot.

“It feels crazy,” said Hause. “I just got that line down this morning and I was feeling the pressure going into my last run because I knew it was now or never. I’m so happy I landed it!”

Finishing second was Bryce Wettstein (USA) with an 86.33 and Jordyn Barratt (USA) in third with an 80.33, who also won the Zumiez Destroyer Award.

Men’s Pro Street was next with Kelvin Hoefler (BRA) looking to reclaim his title from 2017. While Hoefler came close, it was first place qualifier Yuto Horigome (JPN) who went home today with his first Dew Tour title. After a fall on his first run, Horigome came back with a vengeance, scoring a 91.00 on his second run including a nollie 360, board slide, backside 360, 360 flip, ollie 270 switch backside lip slide and a big spin frontside board slide.

“I was having so much fun on this course,” said Horigome. “It took the pressure off to win with my second run, but I was still trying to beat my score on my last run to see if I could land what I wanted to.”

Coming in second was Jagger Eaton (USA) with an 88.69 and Kelvin Hoefler (BRA) finishing third with an 88.00.

The Men’s Pro Park finals concluded the four-day Dew Tour with a dynamic contest that won’t be forgotten in the skateboard world. During the 40-minute heat, defending champion Cory Juneau (USA) claimed his back-to-back title, holding onto his second run score of a 93.33. Juneau’s bag of tricks included a frontside flip, gap to back spin, frontside bluntside, backside noseblunt revert, back lipslide, one-footed ollie, backside 360 ollie, fake nose grind.

“Everyone was skating super good and was so fired up,” said Juneau. “I did not expect to win again, but I was feeling good after my run and it all worked out.”

Second place honors went to first-time Dew Tour skater Oskar Rozenberg (SWE), who scored a 91.00 and also also took the Zumiez Destroyer Award. Tristan Rennie (USA) ended in third with a 90.00.
