Vans Park Series Global Qualifier Huntington Beach Results

YouTube Preview ImageThe Vans Pro Skate Park Series in Huntington Beach wrapped up its final stop of Global Qualifiers for dozens of hungry competitors. On Friday more than a hundred skaters battled it out for just nine spots available to the semi-finals in in one built-to-spec custom designed park course for the chance to earn their spot to the World Championships in Malmö, Sweden later this month.

Park Series Select Pro Chris Russell nailed down a first place run in Huntington Beach on Saturday to claim his second Vans Park Series Global Qualifier win of the season. But Ben Hatchell surely gave him a run for his money with an assortment of heavy stunts with technical control. Sweden’s Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg took home third place with speed, style and great combined use of the entire park.

Italy’s Ivan Federico didn’t advance into Saturday’s Final, but now sits atop of the Global Challenger rankings where seven additional rippers from around the world will join him and the Vans Park Series Select Pros in Malmö.
