The finals on Sunday started with the ladies comp. Candy Jacobs from the Netherlands was the #1 qualifier out of 23 girls.

Second place went to Julia Bruecker of Austria and 3rd was Alexis Sablone from New York.
#1 in the men's semifinals went to Brazilian, Lucas Alvas. He did a crooked grind down the big rail to nollie flip out during his run and went on to win the Finals! Last years champion Vincent Milou was first on Saturdays qualifiers and had an amazing run to finish in 2nd. 3rd was Richard Tury from Slovakia. Also congratulations to the best tricks, winners, Vinicius Santos did a nollie 180 to switch nosegrind down the big ledge on Saturday, and Evandro Martins did a fakie to indy grab nosepick on the vert wall to revert transfer to the steep bank on Sunday.
