The world’s most prestigious skateboarding competition will make its London debut inside the Box That Rocks – kicking off with the opening event of this prestigious tour is a major coup for London, as SLS and World Skate prepare street skateboarding for its inaugural appearance in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
As well as showcasing the world’s best street skaters, the SLS Pro Open London will shine the spotlight on the capital’s rich street skating scene! 2017 SLS World Champion Nyjah Huston (USA) and top contender Shane O’Neill (Australia) are among the big names set to intermix with an exciting group of up-and-coming athletes that will compete in London over the bank holiday weekend.
The athletes will battle for pride and prize in a custom-built concrete skate plaza, designed to inspire innovative tricks and take skateboarding to new heights. The competition features an exciting easy-to-follow format, anchored by instant scoring, resulting in down to the last trick ‘buzzer-beater’ moments that appeal to both die-hard fans and new spectators alike.
