Counting each year among the unmissable of the festival, the Skateboard Finals attracted crowds around the Bowl all day long. Starting by the gnarly Kids contest, where the top ranking riders had promised a huge level with the young Naomi De Souza, Adam Bensalah and the Spanish Bijueska Egoitz, whose level could have justified to participate in Pro.
In this category, the Marseillais Jean Pantaleo flew over the contest with his committed tricks and a massive amplitude on his airs. With his unique nonchalance, Reunion's Stellio Sakellarides rode the Bowl with disconcerting ease and took second place. Special mention for Rodrigue Dias, yesterday's first qualifier who finished third today, who after a nice first run risked trying everything on the second.
