Festival highlights from the last day as things wound down with a Vans demo and some sunburns.
The Vans Pro finished up this afternoon with a one on one final heat between two riders from Brazil, Jean Da Silva and Filipe Toledo. Da Silva ended up taking the top honors with a 14.76, Toledo was incredibly close with a 14.50 landing him in second. Being a 6 star ASP event this year first takes home $25,000 and 3,500 points, while 2nd gets $12,500 and 2,640 points. It was a tough competition throughout and we saw a lot of surprising eliminations today, congrats to Jean! Photos by Travis Owney.
