Pedro Barros’s very own backyard bowl in Florianapolis, Brazil, is the venue for the fourth edition of Red Bull Skate Generation and this year we have shaken the format up somewhat. The four categories – am, pro, master and legend – will first compete against each other, before teams are drawn from the category rankings, giving each team a rider from each division. The finals are then a team tournament, so the whole team has to bust out in order to take the crown.

Last year brought the big guns out – Hosoi, Salba, Hassan, Ventura and of course Barros and his crew of local rulers – so with the energy building around the event, this year it should really pop off!
