Brazilian skater Felipe Nunes won the Dew Tour debut of Adaptive Park on Sunday in a World Skate-sanctioned event meant to help pave the way for bringing adaptive skateboarding and WCMX to the Paralympics.
Nunes opened Run 2 with a big kickflip drop in over a gap from a banked extension on course, then followed it up with the most technical run of the morning, including a backside flip, backside flip to tail, backside noseblunt, overcrook grind, blunt to fakie, backside 360 flip over a hip, and a frontside flip over another hip.
“I’m super happy to be here and to have the opportunity to skate here,” Nunes said, after also winning the Adaptive Street contest a little bit later in the morning. “I really love both street and park.”
