Vans Shop Riot hit Europe’s westernmost coast on September 22nd, for the 3rd Edition of the Vans Shop Riot Portugal at the Indoor Skate Community in Torres Vedras. Ten core shop teams joined the battle from all over the country leaving behind the whole skatepark shaking!
After some furious playoffs, six teams went on to the next stage for two more jams that narrowed it down to a sick one-to-one between the two winners from previous editions, Ericeira Surf & Skate and Kate skateshop.
Indeed, Ericeira’s sons showed more consistency overall obtaining the prize and will move on to the European finals in Leeds the next 12th & 13th of October!
However, Kate’s team still managed to get their slice of glory on the best trick sessions with its very own Jorge Simões landing a FS tailslide flip out down the curb and Nuno Cardoso laying down a crooked flip out on the railing down the funbox.
