The 2018 Vans Park Series Pro Tour in Huntington Beach completed its prelim rounds earlier today to determine the final lineup for the men and women’s main event tomorrow, August 4. The VPS Men’s Pro Tour began with 18 challengers gunning for one of ten open spots in the semi-finals. Event wildcard and winner of the 2017 VPS Brazil National Championships, Luiz Francisco qualified in first, with a dominating performance.
