RECAP

Richard Tury comes out first in the skateboard semi-finals. It’s his first contest since recovering from a wrist surgery so it’s quite the comeback. The technicality and consistency of his runs is what earned him victory.

 

Egor Golubev was also recovering from a knee surgery but was able to please both the audience and the judges with powerful and fast skateboarding. He landed huge airs and the longest grinds we’ve seen today. He qualifies in 4th place.

Kechaud Johnson qualifies in 2nd place demonstrating his ability to stay consistent while attempting high-speed and dangerous tricks.

Unfortunately, Jasper Dhors, who caught everyone’s attention with the originality of his skateboarding, won’t make it to the next stage.

Tomorrow the final promises to be exciting with skaters from all over the world who all have unique styles and trick selection.
