The Slvsh Cup returned to Sunset park in Grandvalira for 2018 for what has to be the most anticipated set of games in recent memory. Stepping into the ring for Monster Energy was the Slvsh veteran James ’Woodsy’ Woods and, for the first time ever, X Games slope and big air gold medalist Henrik Harlaut.

Henrik known for his face melting kicker tricks has really stepped up his rail game in recent years and you can’t help but wonder if it’s due to calling Andorra, and the sunset park, his new home. Although Woodsy was taken out in a tight Round 1 heat Henrik proceeded to show why he’s stacking his medal cabinet at the moment coming out all guns blazing from round one.

With fans calling Henrik for the final from the get-go he smashed through round 1 with his Swedish prodigy Emil Granbom, a close second heat with Simone Canal and then Hunter Hess in an insane semi-final matchup.

Facing off against his Armada team mate from Montana, Quinn Wolferman in the final it was always going to be heater of a match and it did not disappoint. Henrik took 3 letters combined in all his games leading up to the final but half way through Quinn had him against the wall taking a second go on his last letter. In the end experience won out and Henrik eventually took the W setting a mind bending line to take it in his rookie year.
