Going into the last of four runs in the Finals, newcoming ripper from Italy, Ivan Federico, was far in first place. When it came time for Pedro to put it down in his final run, he nailed it. Ivan had one last chance to improve on his second place, being the last skater in the Finals. An early bail took him out and the hometown hero, Pedro Barros became the winner of the second stop of the season here in Brazil.

Friday, January 23, 2015

After we landed in LA and got settled, we rolled over to the skatepark down the street to find one of the ones from the recent era where cities were building the worst concrete piles that random contractor companies could spit out. This one is pretty insane. It still ended up being a fun time, though.
