* Nijah Houston Wins First Place and a Golden Ticket to the Super Crown.
* Over 7.000 people enjoyed closely the world’s elite skateboarding throughout the weekend.
The 2017 Street League Skateboarding (SLS) Nike SB World Tour kicked off this weekend with the third annual SLS Nike SB Pro Open in Barcelona, Spain. Returning to the custom concrete skate plaza Skate Agora BDN, the world’s top skateboarders came together to compete for skateboarding’s biggest opportunity of joining the Tour for the season. After two action-packed days, Nyjah Huston emerged victorious to take the honor of another SLS win, followed by Shane O’Neill and Yuto Horigome.
Nyjah Huston – 35.0
Shane O’Neill – 34.7
Yuto Horigome 31.6
Kelvin Hoefler 30.9
Tiago Lemos – 25.5
Dashawn Jordan 18.9
Matt Berger – 17.8
Felipe Gustavo – 17.5
As a prelude to the season of arena events following the Tampa Pro North American Qualifier , the SLS Nike SB Pro Open gives the two highest scoring non-SLS Pros a spot on the Tour – this year claimed by Yuto Horigome and Dashawn Jordan – as well as offering existing SLS Pros the chance to earn vital Championship Points that determine Tour ranking. The overall winner not only takes home the prestige of an SLS win, but more importantly a coveted Golden Ticket straight to the 2017 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship in Los Angeles. Check it out on ETN.
