The parallel special slalom was a new addition to the Winter Olympic Program, although it had been contested at the World Championships since 1996. Vic Wild, the American expatriate who had married Alyona Zavarzina, a Russian snowboarder, and chose to compete for Russia because of more financial support from their snowboarding federation, had already won the parallel giant slalom a few days before. In that event Slovenian Žan Košir had taken bronze, but he and Wild would meet in the final of this event.

Wild had made the final by defeating Austrian Benjamin Karl, the 2009 and 2011 World Champion, in the semi-finals. Wild won the gold medal comfortably for his second gold medal in Sochi, while Karl easily won the bronze medal race over Italian Aaron March. Two favorites went out in the 1/8th-final, as 2013 World Champion Rok Marguč of Slovenia and Frenchman Sylvain Dufour, the 2013/14 World Cup leader, failed to advance.
