The 2017 Vans Park Series kicked off on March 4 at Manly Beach in Sydney, Australia with a brand new, custom-designed park built for shredding. Clay Kreiner, an event wildcard, dominated the gnarly terrain to qualify in 2nd place, behind Tom Schaar.

Not even the rain could stop the madness that ensued during the Pro finals. Squeezing in the competition between storms, and with only 30 minutes to practice, each rider was allowed their best of three runs. Clay managed to hang on to the top 10, with Tom Schaar edging out Ivan Federico and Pedro Barros with a near-flawless final run.
