This Friday & Saturday, the world’s best skateboarders will gather in Vista, California as part of the newly expanded Nitro World Games for the inaugural Skateboard Park and Vert competitions. Battling for a piece of a prize purse that totals over $300,000 U.S. Dollars, it’s anyone’s guess who is willing to step up to take home some serious cash.
With a fully stacked field of tier one competitors, these are three events you don’t want to miss.
Men’s Skateboard Park
Fresh off of X Games Minneapolis, the first set of athletes coming to Nitro World Games Skateboard Park to play for keeps has been revealed. With four of the 24 Men’s Skate Park competitors having placed in the top five at X Games, it’s sure to be action packed.
Carrying momentum from a 1st place finish in Minneapolis, Alex Sorgente has set his sights on Vista and is looking to make 2018 a banner year on his resume. Chasing close behind is Tristan Rennie, Pedro Barros, and Clay Kreiner who all know they have a good shot at a Nitro World Games podium.
Women’s Skateboard Park
Similar to Men’s Park, the female Nitro World Games Skateboard Park competitors cleaned up at X Games Minneapolis as well.
Fresh off of her 1st place finish in Minneapolis, Brighton Zeuner is not looking to be stopped anytime soon as she heads to Vista to collect another medal for her trophy shelf. Running close behind her is Sakura Yosozumi, Yndiara Asp, and Nicole Hause who all placed in the top 5 at X Games and are looking to take the top spot away from Zeuner.
Men’s Skateboard Vert
Last, but certainly not least, comes the boys who are ready to send it in Nitro World Games Skateboard Vert.
Mitchie Brusco, Clay Kreiner, and Sandro Dias all ranked in the top five at X Games just a few weeks back and are looking to carry that success into Nitro World Games to take podium spots in Vista this weekend.
