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.
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.

Nike SB’s Go Skateboarding Day LA event went down at the famous West LA Courthouse, which was celebrating its one year anniversary of being made into a legal skate spot at last year’s GSD. A large crowd showed up to skate with the Nike SB team consisting of Eric Koston, Shane O’Neill, Blake Carpenter, Nick Boserio, Carlos Ribeiro, Sean Malto and more for the day and to see that they had added back into the fountain which was a ’90s feature of the courthouse before being filled in over a decade ago.
