Street League Skateboarding (SLS) has announced this year’s dates and locations of Pro contests in the SLS global qualification structure towards the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship. As the official street skateboarding world championship series as sanctioned by the International Skateboarding Federation (ISF), the SLS qualifying contests and the SLS Nike SB World Tour are skateboarding’s most prestigious contests in professional competitive skateboarding.
For the second year in a row, SLS will include a Women’s Division as part of the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship, allowing the world’s best female street skateboarders to compete for the title of World Champ. 2015 was a historical year as eight of the best skaters competed for the highest first-place prize in women’s street skateboarding with Brazilian Leticia Bufoni taking the first-ever female Championship.
