Street League Skateboarding at the Copper Box Arena
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. In support of the SLS’ mission, Nike SB joined forces with SLS in 2013 to create the SLS Nike SB World Tour.
SLS offers a range of options for fans around the world to tune in and watch skateboarding’s most prestigious competition series, the SLS Nike SB World Tour. SLS will be available live via ETN, the only digital OTT network with authenticity at its core, featuring original skateboarding shows and live events. Fans worldwide can access the live stream through the ETN app for iOS & Android, as well as on desktops through ETNlive.com. Within North America, ESPN2 runs complete finals coverage of each event, including a dedicated show featuring the Women’s Division of the Super Crown World Championship. For those that missed the action, a highlight special will be aired as part of the World of X Games on ABC the weekend following each event.
We were lucky enough to get invited down for a massive day at the Copper Box Arena, London for the SLS18 event featuring some of the world’s greatest athletes in association with Monster and Beats by Dre. The day was captured by Garry Jones and was a very special event to be part of.
