Following the success of the inaugural Red Bull Skate Generation in 2010, the international invitational event returned to Florianopolis in Brazil this year for a second demonstration of cross-generation skating skills held in local hero Pedro Barros’s very own private skatepark (Florianopolis). In front of 2000 fans, Barros used his home advantage to good effect as he grabbed victory to cement his reputation as the king of the bowl.
Just as two years ago, Pedro Barros’s tree-lined backyard provided an incredible backdrop for a truly unique contest putting teams of skaters aged 15 to 50 against each other. With teams featuring one member from each of the categories Pro, Pro Master, Legend and Amateur, Saturday’s qualifying session gave the riders a chance to get used to the course and, at the same time, determined the line-ups for the grand finale on Sunday.
After a tough battle between the five teams, it came down to a straight shoot-out between the crew led by six-time vert world champion, Sandro Dias, and the posse headed by local favourite Barros. With teammates Christian Hosoi (Legend), Leo Kakinho (Pro Master) and Felipe Caltabiano (Amateur) all rocking the bowl and feeding off the energy of the partisan 2000-strong crowd, Barros pushed on to lead his riders to victory with towering aerials, sick tricks and unrivalled speed. Second place went to the team of Dias (Pro), Jeff Grosso (Legend), Paul Roger (Pro Master) and Franco (Amateur).
