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:
