#FREPS: Vans Park Series
May 31, 2017
We’re excited to announce we will be supporting the Canadian qualifying round for the Vans Park Series World Championships in park terrain skateboarding, taking place in Vancouver at the legendary Hastings Skatepark July 7 - 9. The invite-only, global qualifying event is the fourth stop of the world tour with the final championship round taking place in China this September 2017.
Showcasing an international roster of top professional skateboarders, the VPS establishes the premier global points ranking system for men’s and women’s park terrain skateboarding. This year’s championship consists of five Men’s PS Global Qualifiers and one Women’s PS Global Qualifier occurring over six months and across five countires, culminating with the VPS World Championships in Shanghai, China. The Vancouver qualifier is free and open to the public, welcoming 3,000 local fans, spectators and families to join the fun during this all-ages, action packed event.
The Vans Park Series (VPS) organizes the annual park terrain skateboarding world championship tour for men and women. The VPS was founded in 2016 to grow participation and promote the culture of skateboarding while defining the foundation for park terrain competition worldwide.
