The 17-year-old Brazillian powerhouse proved again that he is best in class with respect to bowl skating leaving long-time leaders in the bowl Bucky Lasek and Rune Glifberg in the second and third place positions, respectively. In the Master’s division it was Nicky Guerrero rolling the fastest and airing the highest in order to earn the top spot over the likes of Steve Caballero and Pat Ngoho. The event also hosted a Best Trick category where Ben Hatchell rose to the occasion and convinced the crowd and judges alike that he had earned the technical prize. Check out a couple of photos from the event, the recap video posted by Boardworld and the results below. For more information check out the recap post on the Vans website.
