The top 8 battled it out today in the 2018 Women's Park Finals, but when all is said and done there can be only one winner, and that winner is Nicole Hause. With a flawless 4th run, Hause came in at the end to take top honors, with a perfect run that culminated with the no-handed backside alley-oop in the deep end.
It was a really tough, really competitive heat, everyone skated really well. Poppy Starr Olsen came from Australia, and blasted airs across the Park Course for a 4th place finish.
Though Bryce Wettstein is young, she dropped in to a perfect first run, setting the bar nice and high. In the end, only one skater could best her score, so Bryce finished 2th.
Last year, Jordyn Barratt skated the Dew Tour against the guys. This year, Dew Tour returns to having a separate womens' division, and she was making her tricks on every wall, including a mean frontside invert. Jordyn finished in 3rd place.
Crowd favorite Lizzie Armanto started her runs by ollieing the gap from the flat into the course—nailing it every time. She also stuck feeble grinds in the deep end, and the only back Smith of the entire heat.
Hanna Zanzi proved herself a force to be reckoned with, with her signature moves: Bunt fingerflips, sweepers, and a back disaster to Smith.
Sakura Yosozumi came all the way from Japan to throw down on the course, and throw down she did. Her standout move was a casual back nosegrind in the deep end.
Nora Vasconcellos had a tough time putting a run together, but she dropped into her run and nailed a kickflip back disaster—possibly the hottest move of the day.
