From the King of Kona event page on Facebook:

Day 1 is wrap! Good friend Steven Pineiro took home 1st, followed by Trevor Brice and then Corey Ryan to round out the top 3 for our Mini-Ramp jam.

Today we’ve got both the Snake and Park race, as well as our delicious BBQ and skaters party with live music to cap off the night. Park is currently a little wet and night ideal for racing so we’ll be waiting a bit before we start 1st round of qualifying. – King of Kona

We also found this video from Day 1 of the event on the Facebook / youtube:

Born in Vancouver, Les has been backpacking and adventuring around the globe most of his life. Skateboarding made it easier to get around, eventually leading to a long trek skate adventure across Kenya. With a new appreciation for skateboards and some good connections, Les dropped everything to make skateboarding his life and, as they say, it's all been downhill since. Now Editor at Skate[Slate] and one of the owners of Flatspot Longboards, Les spends the rest of his time raising his first kid, plugged into the skate-web, and skating with Coast Longboarding.
