Founded by pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek in 2010, Street League Skateboarding (SLS) was created to foster growth, popularity, and acceptance of street skateboarding worldwide. Since then, SLS has evolved to become a platform that serves to excite the skateboarding community, educate both the avid and casual fans, and empower communities through its very own SLS foundation.
At each stop on the tour, world-famous arenas are transformed into custom concrete skate plazas, challenging the pros to raise their skateboarding to new highs as they compete for the largest prize purse in skate history—more than $2 million dollars. The winner of each tour event receives a “Golden Ticket” guaranteeing them a spot in the Super Crown World Championship at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Only eight pros qualify for the final event of the World Tour and get the opportunity to claim the title of Street League World Champion, including the biggest first place check in the history of the sport: $200,000.
Throughout the year, the SLS Foundation also aims to empower communities with the mission of helping to build free, public skate spots, as well as create new SLS Certified Skate Plazas capable of hosting future events and additional league programs.
To further raise the profile of street skateboarding, SLS begins a new multi-year television partnership with FOX Sports in 2014 .
