Street League Skateboarding, the world’s preeminent professional skateboarding series for over a decade, will bring the world’s best street skaters to the Bold City on July 16 – 17 for the first stop of the 2022 SLS Championship Tour. Last November, Jacksonville made its SLS debut, hosting the tour’s Championship. Now the road to the prized 2022 Super Crown World Championship begins this weekend with a high stakes battle at VyStar Memorial Arena presented by A SHOC Energy.
Returning to an indoor course setup, an elite field of over 40 men and women will compete in the prelims on Saturday, with eight advancing to the final on Sunday. In both the prelim and final, skaters will be scored in an innovative new format based on two runs plus four tricks.
As the season opens, 2021 SLS Super Crown winner Pamela Rosa (São José dos Campos, Brazil) is joined by the entire Women’s Street Olympic podium of Momiji Nishiya(Osaka, Japan), Rayssa Leal (Imperatriz, Brazil) and Funa Nakayama (Toyama City, Japan).
In the Men’s field, four-time SLS Championship title winner Nyjah Huston (Huntington Beach, Calif.) is also joined by Olympic medalists Kelvin Hoefler (São Paulo, Brazil) and Yuto Horigome (Tokyo, Japan), who is returning to SLS competition for the first time since 2019. Florida’s own Jamie Foy (Deerfield Beach, Fla.) will also compete this weekend.
The Jacksonville opener will be followed by stops in Seattle August 13-14, then Las Vegas’s UFC Apex October 8-9 before culminating with the Super Crown World Championship in Rio de Janeiro November 5-6.
