Skateboarding and snowboarding collides as Mountain Dew® has teamed up with Snow Park Technologies (SPT) and CA RampWorks to design and create SuperSnake at Sierra-At-Tahoe resort in California. Check this trailer which shows the likes of Sean Malto, Danny Davis, Trevor Colden, Scotty Lago, Jordan Maxham, Micky Papa and others mixing it up.

Seven Street League skaters (Shane O’Neill, Paul Rodriguez, Nyah Huston, Luan Oliveira, Ryan Decenzo, Tom Asta, and Cody McEntire) have each clinched spots in the upcoming 2016 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship. This leaves only one spot in the top eight to be decided today in Newark, NJ.
SLS Pick Chris Joslin sits on the bubble for Super Crown qualification, but he’ll need to skate strong and remain consistent because he’s up against a handful of SLS veterans. Ishod Wair, Chris Cole, Sean Malto, and David Gonzalez are a few of the heavy hitters that are able to snag this eighth spot.
Keep in mind that there’s a handful of skaters that can take the top spot with a first place finish, earning them a Golden Ticket straight into the 2016 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.
Tune into Street League’s webcast live and direct from Newark, New Jersey today to witness the action. The Prelim heats kick off at 1:25pm EST on streetleague.com, followed by the Final at 5:00pm live on Fox Sports1 (US) and streetleague.com (International).

For over two years, Sean Malto has been working hard physically and mentally to get back on his skateboard, back to the professional level that he was at before a nasty ankle injury took him out in his hometown of Kansas City towards the end of 2013. Ty Evans and his Ghost Digital Cinema crew dig in to point and shine the light on Sean with a short documentary piece as he moves forward from a second surgery while being sidelined from the very thing that fuels his career and happiness – skateboarding.
Unfortunately, injuries are part of the process and progression with skateboarding. We’ve all endured them and they can be brutal, but you get back up and push through the pain to ride another day. Have a look into Sean’s mindset as he takes on physical therapy and discusses his thoughts towards skating comfortably with his friends once again as a top professional street skater.
