Vans is bringing extreme skateboarding back with the 2017 Vans Park Series.

The Vans Park Series features a park terrain skate course, which will be tackled by some of the world’s skateboarding elites. Prizes, worth a total of US$500,000, make this one of the most exciting skate events ever.

The skateboarding championship will consist of five men’s global qualifiers and one women’s global qualifier, spanning over five different countries. The first men’s qualifying round will be held over at Sydney, Australia, on March 4th.

This will be followed up by stops in Brazil, Sweden, Canada and United States, with the last location doubling up as the venue for the World Championships.

Skateboarding fans with limited travel funds will be glad to know that the competition will be broadcast live online. Check out the 2016 Vans Park Series trailer below:
