As skateboarding’s most prestigious professional competitive series, the 2014 SLS Nike SB World Tour brings the sport’s best street skateboarding to a worldwide fan base. SLS Super Crown Champions Sean Malto, Nyjah Huston and reigning champion Chris Cole again take on past event winners such as Paul Rodriguez and Shane O’Neill—each seeking to win the Super Crown Championship and further cement their spot in skateboarding history.
This year the SLS Nike SB World Tour adds two new arena stops. On Sunday, June 29, the tour heads to the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, bringing the show to the most-requested city in online fan voting. The addition of Chicago to SLS this season brings the premier skateboarding contest series to the heartland and bridges the East and West Coast skate scenes. The finals air on FOX Sports 1 live at 7:00 PM ET.
The SLS Nike SB World Tour next heads to the skate mecca of Los Angeles on Sunday, July 27, where the 25 pros compete at the Galen Center for the first time. FOX Sports 1 broadcasts the finals live at 8:00 PM ET.
After completion of the first two stops, the field narrows to the top eight finalists for the season finale: the Super Crown World Championship, which returns to the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Sunday, August 24 live on FOX Sports 1 (9:00 PM ET).
